Altenew Artist Markers Set D Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew Artist Markers Set D Release Blog Hop!!!
Are you enjoying the blog hop :) ?  If you are coming from Svitlana Shayevich's blog, you are right on track! If you're lost on the way, please hop over to Altenew Card blog to start over!

I'm so excited about the new addition of Altenew Artist Markers in my favorite colors! The set D contains the coordinating colors of Rose Petal, Coffee Break and Sea Shore ink sets by Altenew. The markers of Altenew Artist Markers set D are as always super easy to blend and you have already the right color gradation to color with!



I've created two cards using Artist Markers Set D and Handpicked Bouquet stamp set.


On my first card I colored the beautiful floral cluster from Handpicked Bouquet stamp set using only Artist Markers Set D and created the background also using the same markers. 



I stamped the floral cluster image in a gray alcohol marker safe ink on a Neenah solar white cardstock and colored it using Artist Markers Set D. I used all 12 colors on my image.  After done with coloring I cut it using the coordinating die



On the background I decided to use Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer and some circle acetate pieces in different sizes to create a bokeh effect. First I placed the circle acetate pieces on a Yupo paper panel and spritzed R601, R603, B802, Y911 and Y821 on it. I sprayed rubbing alcohol on the panel and let it dry.  I then added some small circle acetate masks and spritzed the markers and rubbing alcohol again. I removed the circle masks and let it dry. After the second layer was dry I splattered Gold Mixative on it to add some golden accent. 


I narrowed down the Yupo panel and glued it on a soft pink cardbase. I then foam mounted the colored floral image on it. 


For the sentiment, also from Handpicked Bouquet stamp set, I used a circle clear acetate. I stamped the sentiment in an embossing ink and heat embossed it in black. I applied the embossing ink also on the edge of the circle and gold heat embossed. I added a thin strip of gold glitter tape from New Day Card kit on the acetate. I foam mounted it by adhering the foam adhesive on the back of the acetate where the glitter tape is adhered. 


To finish off the card I added three pink enamel dots from New Day Card kit .

On the second card I did a background stamping using Handpicked Bouquet stamp set. 


To create this card I first made some stamped background samples. I picked one from them and used it as my guide for coloring. My plan was to create a doodled look. So I added colors first on the glossy cardstock and then gold heat embossed the image. 


I scribbled Rose Petal colors (R series from the Artist Markers Set D) on the spots of the glossy cardstock panel where the flowers would be placed. I then added some green tone (G804, G935 from Artist Markers Set E) and the blue colors from Artist Markers Set D. I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol on the whole panel to blend the colors. It softened the harsh strokes of the markers. 


I gold heat embossed the  Handpicked Bouquet  image four times as shown in the picture. I masked the image and splattered Gold Mixative on the panel. While the panel was drying I cut the sentiment. 


The Thanks die was cut once from a gold cardstock from New Day Card kit and three times from Mulberry cardstock. I stacked them together, the gold die cut slightly offset, and adhered it onto the card. I used the same Mulberry cardstock as the cardbase.  I finished off the card by scattering some pretty sequins in pink tone. 


That was my two cards I created to showcase the new Altenew Artist Markers set D! Hope you enjoyed looking my projects!

All of these are so pretty! But I loved reading how you achieved your "bokeh" background. I hadn't thought of using acetate. Definitely going to try it out! I also want to try putting some rubbing alcohol in a spritzer... another thing I have not tried. Thanks for inspiring me to try new things!

Just yesterday I was watching some videos on creating a bokeh effect, so I'm so glad to see another way to do it used on your card. Beautiful results. I also like the way you used a single stamp to create your background by applying color before stamping.

I love the stamp sets you used to showcase these markers. Your coloring and blending is fabulous. I am so glad they made these markers in three Color families so it is so easy to blend. The additional of the enamel dots and sequins was the perfect touch. They look so soft and feminine. Anyone would treasure these cards if they received them. Thank you for the inspiration, it is greatly appreciated.

Your cards look great. That first one is gorgeous. With that color combo and brown leaves it has a very appealing vintage vibe. I would have loved to see a video on making that background.
