Hello Friends, Happy NEW YEAR!! I hope your new year is off to a good start & wishing you all the best in 2017. Today I want to welcome you to the Altenew Alcohol Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. Woo Hoo!I am so excited to be here today and it’s an honor to give these new markers a try. Let’s cut to the chase .. YES! yes! I love them!! Today is the release of the Artist Marker Set and they are alcohol based markers with 12 colors in the set & each marker has a brush tip & fine tip. To start at the beginning of the hop go to the Altenew blog here.
After coloring the “Bamboo Flowers” I cut a strip of vellum and stamped the sentiment with a vellum friendly black ink. After scoring the vellum with a teflon bone folder (no more shiny line)… I taped the vellum to the back of my card so it’s super clean with no markings from any kind of glue. Details were added with a fine tip sharpie marker and a white gel pen. My card panel and the small flower (on the vellum) was popped up with some foam tape for extra dimension.
Using the brush tip is like coloring with butter and the fine tip made it super easy to add dots for accents on the flowers or it’s great for those detailed coloring book pages.
For my second card … I was going for a more watercolor look with the light colors in the artist marker set.
Unfortunately the sentiments in the stamp set are needed but, they say just the right things.
Adding some of eyelash lines to the leaves and flowers with a super fine tip marker adds that little extra with these light colors.
Altenew Artist Markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images. You can also easily pair them with the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to take your coloring to the next level! The colors in this set are designed to be as close as possible to their existing ink colors, so you can take the color guessing game out of the way when coloring. If you are wondering the markers are refillable and nibs can be replaced .. YAY! The Artist Marker “Set A” goes live in the Altenew store today!! The price of Artist Markers Set is only $44.99 for 12 markers.
Included colors: Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Grapevine, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Dusk, Dessert Night & Jet Black . Here are some of the matching inks sets that match the markers … pink set, blue set & the green set.
