Altenew Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway

09:00


Altenew Artist Markers are the focus of today's blog hop! I was so excited to try these out as I wanted to be able to recommend an alternative marker set for those who don't want to invest in more expensive versions. I have to say that these markers lived up to the hype and are really fantastic to colour with! Due to the flicking technique and how I had to hold my pen, you can watch my review below but it make be difficult to see the actual colouring process. 



I am giving away a $20 gift certificate to Altenew right here on this post! The winner will be announced on this post on July 20th. Additionally, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, July 18th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 7/22/2018.



I chose to colour the Starry Flowers stamp using Set A markers from Altenew. Actually you only need the red cosmos and green fields from the box to recreate these images. I used my marker and flicked out from the centre of the flower going from light to dark and then dark to light. On some of the bigger flowers, I did it from the ends of the petals as well. 


Blog Hop Participants:

This card was created as a part of my Altenew Educator Program inspired by Magical Marker Techniques!
