Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Welcome to Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop!

These 10 Brush Marker's colors may look deep and rich. However, it is entirely up to the user to blend and mix. The Delicate Primrose Stamp/Die Bundle are perfect for watercoloring.

First of all, let's talks about the background.
What is most unique about Altenew Brush Markers is the Metallic Silver Marker!
It has a lot of metallic element in the mix and allows you to easily paint on color card stock.
It is far better than any metallic pen that I have come across.
For this one pen alone, you will get your $ worth. That is my honest opinion.

I placed the Warp Speed Stencil over the black card stock and started painting it with the Metallic Silver Marker. I was amazed at the result! The flow is thick and juicy. I only need to add a tiny bit of water to get the flow going.

 OK, let's talk about the flowers. Will you look at those gorgeous colors?
All you need is to MIX up 2-3 colors and water. That's it!
If you have already owned and loved the first set Watercolor Brush Markers (Spring Garden),
you will LOVE this new set Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers and MORE!

The sentiment from World Map Stamp Set fits into this design nicely.
In today's card, I only use the latest Water Wonderland Brush Markers.
I look forward to using the two sets of brush markers together in my future projects.
