Alright, are you ready to talk Markers?


Altenew already has one set of 12 "Set A"  Today They are releasing two more sets. 
"Set B" and "Set C" are just filled with beautiful colors. 
They are also offering discounts if you buy them in a bundle. 

 




I actually used all three sets to create my card for today. 
I first stamped and masked my scene. When you're creating a one layer card you want to start with whatever will be in the foreground. For this card that was my flower and then the cup. 


I left all the masks in place and added an additional one to the bottom of the card for my table top.  I put down some distress inks to create a background and then removed all my masks to get coloring! 



The colors included in these sets blend really easily together so there's no guess work. Plus, the markers are one of the few alcohol markers that have a brush nib which I love! I don't even remember how to color without them :/ 

I did do a video but it's a long hop so feel free to skip it. 
Or come back and check it out. It'll be here :) 



The next stop on the hop is TaeEun Yoo!
Thank you so much dropping by!!

Here's the List of the Entire Hop in case you get lost along the way!

  24. I love to watch you color, and maybe you should go without sleep more often!! (It's ok. I did night shift for years and there are just days where you are hyper and a tad silly in a very fun way when you are sleep deprived! I actually enjoyed it!!!) There's nothing quite like a curious 4year-old...enjoy it while you can. My 4 year old grand boy is now a teenager--and even though the same thing happened with his dad, I am not sure how it happened so FAST! Thanks so much for all the instruction, help, fun, and encouragement that makes it you.

  46. Absolutely stunning coloring! Your talent truly amazes me. Thank you for sharing. I’m not sure about the dishwasher. I’m thinking there must be some sort of child proof lock. Since children can drown in them I’m sure there must be something available. Good luck in your quest. Until then giving him an unnatural fear of gnomes might do the trick. Just know you may face hefty therapy bills in your future lol
