Many of you have seen our incredible (and now famous) brand ambassador, lettering artist and master blender Karen all over our Facebook and Instagram. Karen and her lettering and brush pens friends always talk about "blending" and how they love how Life of Colour's Watercolour pens blend. If you are a beginner and have no idea how to blend, or have never used brush pens before, then this tutorial is for you. 

Are you one of the people who makes their own cards or buys them from a newsagent? Personally I would rather spend more on the gift and less on the card, so I fall into the former category. With my Life of Colour Pens and stencils I feel like I can make all my own cards with confidence and pride. Nothing is more special and personal than giving a loved one a card that you took your time and effort to make. 

In this tutorial I will show you how to make a beautiful safari greeting card using all of our products.
