Coloring The Outline Stamps

Hello friends!
Altenew Artist Markers

 A month ago, I was preparing for my 3-week long vacation/cruise. I needed to bring something crafty with me. So, I packed up my Altenew Artist Markers and Altenew Watercolor Pan Set

hope your day is fabulous

Watercoloring and Artist Markers were my lifesaver during the sea days. This past cruise was the calmest sea days that I had  in years! I didn't need to take any motion sickness pills as I am prone to motion sickness. It was so relaxing that I really enjoyed coloring and exploring more with the coloring medium. I know I needed to give myself TIME to practice and play.

fabulous day

The luxury that I had during the cruise? I could easily take my supplies to lounges and I was able to listen to live performances from the string quintet. Occasionally, I got asked about my supplies and coloring. Thus, a conversation with my fellow cruisers began....

 This card was colored entirely with Altenew Artist Markers.
Lastly, did you know that Altenew Artist Markers now have Artist Markers Refills?

I used glaze/stencil paste along with the Dotty Stencil (see links below).

I saw it on Scrapbook.com

The silver-embossed sentiment really stands out. Love that!
Today I am planning to see the new movie "Crazy Rich Asians"... should be fun. 

Here is one of the live performances during my cruise. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

How lovely, coloring to music. And without seasickness pills...lucky girl. Apparently, the practice you got was worth it. This card is absolutely beautiful. Love the colors and texture and the silver embossing.
I should have kept practicing my violin, cello and viola...I could have played and cruised.

Wow, I didn't know markers could do this! Do they tend to bleed through lightweight paper?

Virginia Lu said...

b.p.---> Yes, medium to heavy weight paper is best for heavy alcohol markers coloring. I had no trouble in using the markers and they did not bleed through much. You do run the risk of bleeding through with lightweight paper. However, as long as you use a piece of paper underneath, it would not pose a problem.
