Altenew Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and Welcome to Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop!

Today I'm celebrating with Altenew the release of new Artist Marker Refills. It's an honor to be a part of this blog hop and I can say, I had fun playing with the Artist Marker Refills :)!

If you're coming from lovely Rubeena Ianigro's blog you are right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the hop, please hop over to Altenew Card Blog

Altenew released Artist Marker Refills for Artist Marker set A, set B and set C. I wanted to apply alcohol ink coloring technique on my image using Artist Marker Refills as alcohol ink. So I chose the big flower from Crown Bloom stamp set to color and Artist Marker Refill set B for a color scheme of purple, yellow and gold. 


I started by gold heat embossing the big flower, small blooms and leaves from  Crown Bloom stamp set on some alcohol ink cardstock. I colored the big flower by dripping R705 and R702 Refills on the petals and tilting the paper to spread the color. the flower center was colored using WG07 and micro applicator. For the small flowers I used Y205 refill and green Artist Markers from set A. To color the leaves I scribbled first the inner part using G554 Artist Marker and then dripped WG03 Refill on it to blend the green color with warm gray. 


I die cut all images using coordinating dies and set them aside.
The background was made on a Yupo panel. I first sprayed plenty of rubbing alcohol on the panel, applied some drops of R702, WG01 and WG03 Refill on it and blew the colors and alcohol to blend them. I then added Gold Mixative for some golden accents and splatters of R705, WG07 refill.


After the background panel was dry, I cut it slightly smaller than A2 size and gold heat embossed the four sides. I then assembled the card together. The background panel was adhered flat on a white top fold cardbase and the flowers and leaves are arranged as shown in the picture along with the gold heat embossed sentiment from BAF: Cattleya stamp set. To finish off the card I scattered some golden sequins.

I admit, I was a little iffy on this particular set of markers, but your did an amazing job using them! Suddenly I see them in a whole new light. Also, that background is amazing. It looks like a marble counter that I would very much like to have in my kitchen! The contrast between it and the vividly bright flowers makes for just a gorgeous card. Thank you so much for sharing!
