Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop!

If you are coming from Lilith Eeckels' blog you are right on track. If you want to start the hop from the beginning please hop over to the Altenew Card Blog!

Altenew has released two new Artist Markers sets and Colorless Blender along with gorgeous Embellishments for paper crafting! I had the pleasure to play with the Artist Markers Set E and the new Colorless Blender.


I chose a big floral stamp with many petals to showcase the new marker set :)!  Build-A-Flower: Camellia seemed to be perfect for this purpose. 


To do no-line coloring I stamped the third layer of Camellia flower in Sunkissed and the leaves in Bamboo ink on Neenah solar white cardstock. I stamped two more flowers in Limestone on a A2 sized solar white panel to create the monochrome background.


I colored all the images using three color families from Artist Markers Set E. On the orange camellia I needed Y205, C001 from Artist Markers Set B and R335 from Set A too.



I gold heat embossed the sentiment from Build-A-Flower: Camellia on the background panel and adhered it on a white cardbase.


The orange camellia flower and the leaves were cut using coordinating dies and added onto the card. The flower was foam mounted and I glued the leaves flat on the card.


I used the Colorless Blender to blend or soften and brighten the colors and it worked fantastically!
