Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
I am excited to share a super fun projects with you!
 Altenew is celebrating Alcohol Markers Refill Release with a blog hop!
s
If you arrive from the blog of Leigh Houston, you are in the right place!
For the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew's Card Blog and Scrapbook Blog.

This summer, I had a cruise to Iceland ( lucky me!) and I took Altenew Artist Markers with me.
It was one of the BEST relaxing thing to do when you are on a ship...!YES!
I am so glad that the Artist Markers Refills are now available!

Artist Markers

Let's get to the project, shall we?
Altenew-ArtistMarkersRefill-Virginia#1

The vibrancy of the Artist Markers' refills are astounding. Much like the alcohol ink that you are familiar with, the Artist Markers work just the same as the ones on the market. The advantage of Altenew's is that they work perfectly  and are matching with your existing Altenew ink sprays!!

Altenew-ArtistMarkersRefill-Virginia#4

Along with the Blending Solution, I inked up the Yupo Alcohol Paper with Altenew Artist Markers Refill (Set A). Let dry.

Altenew-ArtistMarkersRefill-Virginia#2

The detailed bow and leafy branch ( from the Holiday Bow Stamp Set ) are perfect for stamping with Alcohol Lift Ink. That is why you see that marbleized TEXTURE from the bow. It was stamped with Alcohol Lift Ink on Altenew Artist Markers Refill (Set A)
Isn't  that a bonus?
Altenew-ArtistMarkersRefill-Virginia#3

I then made the die cut and stamped more pine, leaves and berries in the background. Then it came the assemble time! You see, the colors really match so beautifully. The Artist Markers' Refill Inks' colors do not clash with the stamped background.
