- Lay your lightest color over the majority of your object. (flower pot). Here I left a bit of white in the center for my highlight.
- Add your midtone marker (middle color) on top of your lightest color only about 1/4” into the flower pot from each side.
- Color your shading color (darkest color) on top of your midtone color, this time only covering about 1/8” of the flower pot from each side. (see image)
- Blend your light and midtone colors with your lightest marker, dab the joint where the two colors join together. This will allow the two colors to “blend” or “bleed” together.
- Blend your midtone (middle) and shading (darkest) colors with your middle color repeating the motion as in step 4.

Basic Blending - Spectrum Noir
By Jennie Black
Here we have a darling little kitty from Crafter’s Companion SWALK line. Sealed With A LIttle Kiss... now is that a cute brand name or what? The name alone gives me the warm fuzzies.
Three color blending
Look at the area where the two colors join together. I placed the lighter pen where you would blend.
Blend the colors together then mount onto a card or scrapbook page.
Have a colorful day
