Altenew, Giveaway

Video | Altenew Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Hello, and welcome to the Altenew Markers Release Blog Hop! If you came from the amazing Mindy Baxter’s blog, you are right on track!

To celebrate a new release of Aritst Markers Set B and Aritst Markers Set C from Altenew, I created a floral themed card using the Adore You Stamp Set and the Halftone Hearts Stamp Set.

I started by stamping my first large flower image four times with Altenew Permanent Black ink on an A2 size white cardstock. Then I masked off the images with post-it notes and stamped the next images over my masks, positioning the images partially onto the masks. I continued stamping and masking until I finished creating my entire floral background.

I wanted to color my images with a unique color combo, without any red colors. So I decided to use 4 different color families from Artist Markers Set A and Artist Markers Set B: Green Fields, Shades of Purple, Summer Afternoon, and Warm Gray.

I mainly used the flicking technique to blend the colors. By using the tip of your brush and laying down the marker and then flicking where your marker touches the paper last is going to be a lot lighter then. This leaves the lighter part much easier to blend with the next color. The little gaps between your flicks will also help blend the next lighter color.

I added some white dots on the center of each flower using a white gel pen to give some interest to my floral background. I wish I had more patience to keep blending in the colors. And I also need to practice more to have my flicks a lot thinner so I can achieve a realistic look of flowers. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with Altenew Permanent Black Ink on a piece of white cardstock. Then I die cut my sentiment using the Halftone Hearts Die Set and my Spellbinders Platinum die cut machine

I stamped additional sentiment from the Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with Altenew embossing ink on a piece of black cardstock. Then I heat embossed the sentiment with Altenew pure white embossing powder and trimmed my sentiment into a thin banner using a kraft knife and ruler.

I made a video tutorial to show you how to color floral images from the Adore You Stamp Set with Altenew Artist Markers. You can watch it here or in HD on YouTube.

    Oh May your cards are just so wonderful. Thankyou for being in the ALTENEW’S BLOG HOP. Their products are just amazing aren’t they? I think my favourite stamp set is the “CRAFTY FRIENDS” I often say ‘ I wish I could come to your place and craft a while ” lol. Not that this would happen as I’m in the UK and most blogs I follow are in the USA / CANADA. 😘 XX

    Wow, you’re coloring is amazing! What you did with those markers is nothing short of amazing but then I know you from all these blog hops and I would expect nothing less. What do you mean you need to practice to get your flicks a lot thinner to make the flowers look more real? Are you serious? Your flowers look pretty real to me! Never mind the fact that I love flowers but you used my favorite color in the whole wide world, yellow, and I am one happy camper. The white dots with your white gel pen which I now have are amazing and something I want to do when I make flowers. I am going to save your card so I can try some of the things you did. I love how I get inspiration from all of you on these hops. Everyone has done something different with each of their cards. I love them all! Thank you for showing us your beautiful card and for giving us the chance to win something. When I win these markers, I am going to try what you did with your card. I can only hope to make something as pretty as you did.
