Altenew + The Daily Marker Color Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew and The Daily Marker Color Therapy Blog Hop! 

If you have arrived here froNorine Borys' blog, you are right on track. If you are lost on the way or want to start from the beginning of the blog hop, please head on over to Altenew Card Blog.

Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker is hosting her 14th 30 day coloring challenge in November 2019. Altenew is collaborating with her to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring with this Color Therapy Blog Hop!

Kathy is encouraging crafters to color something everyday, it might be only a few minutes a day and you don't need to finish the project at once. You have many options, if you want to share your coloring; on Kathy's blog, on FaceBook or InstagramBe sure to tag Kathy and use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day, or #thedailymarker30daykids for kids or young adults.

I'm so excited and feeling honored to be part of this collaborative blog hop! It's even more special to me, as I couldn't participate every day in the challenge like I wanted to. 

Recently I've been enjoying coloring the flowers in gray tones using alcohol based markers and colored pencils. I did it again for this blog hop and made also a video showing the coloring process. You could watch the video below or on my YouTube Channel

Let's take a look at my card :)! 


I pulled out one of my favorite stamp sets, Wallpaper Art and stamped the flowers in Limestone on a Neenah solar white cardstock. I stamped the center part again in Pure Graphite to make it darker. 
I then started coloring the folds of the petals using Altenew Artist markers TG02 from set E. I blended the TG02 with Copic W1, added darker shade in TG03 and blended it again with TG02. So my base layer was finished. 


Next I added details to the petals using Polychromos colored pencils in Warm Gray. Lastly I colored the darkest shade with a black colored pencil.

The leaves were stamped in Tattered Rose DI on a watercolor paper panel. I colored them in Cotton Candy of Altenew Watercolor Pan set and a waterbrush. While I was coloring the leaves, I added clear water to lift the Tattered Rose ink. I also colored the open leaves in Cotton Candy and added darker shade in Industrial Diamond. 


I die cut all the images using coordinating dies. I colored the stamen in gold watercolor and added some golden dots on the leaves as well.

I adhered the Peach Gold Washi tape on a white cardstock panel, narrowed it down slightly and glued it on a dark brown cardbase. I arranged the flowers and leaves on it as shown in the picture.


The sentiment was cut using Inline Alpha die set from some gold foil paper and from some coral fun foam. I raised the letter h with the foam and glued the letter i on a flower. I finished off the card by adhering two gold enamel dots. 

If you want to know how I colored the images, below is a video of my coloring process :) !

Wow, your coloring is gorgeous, I absolutely love the colors you chose for the flower!

Pat said...

Fantastic painting as usual TaeEun and I love the soft greys with the peachy pink tones and thank you for your lovely video 'how to'. I see the waterbrush is an Altenew one but what about the detail brush, I thought that was a good combination using the waterbrush and ordinary brush together. x

The washi looks great on the card. Your coloring is beautiful, the colors so muted and delicate.

Fabulous - love the soft tones and how the colour is more in the backdrop and the focal flowers are in gray tones. Very modern romantic.

Awesome card! The unusual color combination gives amazing results!

Amanda Steele said...

You have an awesome talent for combining colours that I don't think would work but they do. That is one beautiful washi tape and the cotton candy colour on the leaves and the shades of greys on the flower are soo perfectly suited for each other. It's no wonder that you're one of my top five favourite crafters. Such a beautiful card! Thanks for creating and sharing this with us Tae Eun.
Sincerely.
