Altenew Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
It's an exciting day over Altenew because we now have more MARKERS
This January, Altenew came up with Artist Markers Set A.
It was so popular! I know many of you are anticipating more MARKERS!

These markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images.
You can find out all the details in Altenew Scrapbook Blog and Card Blog.

If you come from the lovely Nina-Marie Trapani, you are in the right place.

I took some photos of these awesome Artist Markers in case you want to see them up close and personal. Aren't they lovely?

and Set C

You can get them all here.

Altenew markers are ergonomic and user/color-friendly!
 For my coloring, I chose to use this stamp set

Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp Set
Shop Altenew (Hibiscus Bouquet Stamp Set)

(shop Simon Says Stamp here)
and 


Amazing You Stamp Set
Shop Altenew (Amazing You Stamp Set)

(shop Simon Says Stamp here)

 I love that you can easily blend two or more colors without using a blender marker!
To me, that is a huge plus! The "color-blending" is amazing! For someone like me (who is not patient to do detailed coloring), I am stopping my collections of Copic markers. THESE Artist markers will be my go-to from now on. I also noticed that the price is much more affordable.... and they come in the cute container for easy display and portability!
Need I say more?

The brush nib has just the right amount of surface. I used the smaller nib to add the dotty details.
And one more thing ... I already know the Altenew Ink colors well, the markers are made to MATCH the inks! No more guessing.  Hallelujah! πŸ˜‡

 I had a FABULOUS time coloring the images. In the end, I use Heat Wave Pen to add the gold dots with the help of Tiny Bubble Stencil. It may not seem obvious that I used a stencil for the dotty background. I carefully use the Heat Wave Pen one little circle at at time (Partial/Selective Stenciling).
