It's too hard to choose my fave - I waiver between the stencil, the stamp, & the marker colors. Obviously, I think you made a stunning card!

I have to say your use of the stencil is brilliant, has to be my favorite!

Terrie said...

I love the way you did the background, I need to remember that when making cards! Thanks for sharing your talents!

Debra Rumpza said...

Love the florals... and your stenciled background is divine!

Joy Meadows said...

Your card design is delightful, Virginia! Love the stenciled background and your use of the new alcohol markers. I use a lot of different media for my cards and love each one of them for various reasons. Have a great day!

Peggy M said...

Beautiful card! Thank you for sharing!

Karen @ Misplaced Mojo said...

Beautiful card! My favorite coloring medium changes every month or so :-) I'll go crazy with colored pencils for awhile, then get tired of using them or want to show my other products some love. Then I switch to alcohol markers or Zigs or Tombows. I just came off a Tombow run and I'm on colored pencils now. I like spending so much time with one medium as I think it helps build my skill level with them rather than hopping back and forth with every project.

Michele K. Henderson said...

All of your techniques are beautiful! I love the look of the markers, and the beautiful blend of color you can create! That technique is my favorite and you always make it look amazing!
Take care!

What a lovely blend of images and colors with the background and flowers! Really wonderful!!! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!

Greta said...

Beautiful flowers & you've reminded me to use my stencils for floral card backgrounds, Virginia! I don't do much coloring, but when I do it's usually my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers done in a messy style. Maybe this year I'll finally practice using my COPICs for more than coloring gems & pearls--haha!

Unknown said...

I love the look of the Sunburst stencil for the background. The colours of the new markers really pop against the white and gold. Beautiful card!

Kelsey Thomas said...

This is beautiful!

Nox said...

So beautiful! I love the stenciled colour and pattern behind the florals - a lovely contrast. I have to admit it is hard to choose what medium I love the most. I do enjoy inking a lot, but have learned to really love watercolours - either paint/pencils, or markers to applying more direct colour. I love this new release palette!

conil said...

These Engraved Flowers are gorgeous especially in that fantastic color...so pretty and elegant. Of course, it doesn't hurt that you're a master colorist. My favorite color medium is inkpads. I can prove that because I have millions of them.

Mitzi Manthey said...

Lovely card! The use of the stencil was a good way to draw the eye into the card.

Sue D said...

TFS your beautiful card. The Artist Markers look awesome; love the new colors!! I usually reach for my Zig Real Brush markers. I have a much easier time with water-base markers than alcohol. I need to experiment more with the latter.

Victoria Milam said...

Beautiful card! I love the colors in this release!

Bobbie Lathrop said...

Very nice card love the colors

Kandice J said...

The coloring of the flowers are so beautiful. Lovely job! Thanks for sharing!

roni fajardo said...

Color blending with all kinds of mediums, you’re cards are always amazing!

Patt H. said...

Love this amazing card, Virginia! The use of the stencil is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration. I use watercolors & also colored pencils a lot as I am not as used to alcohol markers. Need to practice more!!

DJ said...

You've selected one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets and these new colors look fabulous with them. Very nice job. TFS!

Vikki H, southern Oregon said...

Your stenciling provides great texture for this lovely stamp set and the beautiful colors. I mostly color with inks, Distress Inks and have begun using my Altenew watercolor set more.

Elizabeth B said...

Very pretty card. Thank so much for sharing!

Cheryl Rigney said...

Your card is fabulous!! I love the stenciled background!

Suzanne Leopard said...

Love your technique! I don't have a favorite coloring method yet, but am leaning towards alchol markers. The colors are so vibrant!

Suzanne Russell said...

Such beautiful and rich new color markers! Love your card-especially the way the stenciled background makes the ornate floral image pop.

Sandy O. said...

Pretty colors you've used, and I really like the leaf that curls up. Good job.

Linda Tucker said...

Your cards are always so classy and beautiful!!! I’m still a novice with alcohol markers but I figure practice will certainly make it better. I also enjoy coloring pencils.

Maryam said...

These flower with the stenciled background are just extra fabulous.. Love this card .

Cyndi Morris said...

Gorgeous card. I love these new colors and your coloring is beautiful I recently received my Sunburst Stencil, and I loved the was you used it for the background. Can't wait to try it.

Fabulously Beautiful card/colors! These markers sets are jewels just like the flower sets!

Patti Bailey said...

Your card is beautiful!! I'm getting more comfortable with alcohol makers but I have a LONG way to go and so much to learn! I have a few favorite mediums currently, including foiling, watercoloring and using stencils.

Linda Anderson said...

Love your card! I use different coloring mediums but I think the one I use most is alcohol markers because they blend well on all my little critter and flower cards. TFS.

Carmela Hubler said...

What a gorgeous background, Virginia! I love the stenciling. Your flower is also so pretty in these colors.

Karen Lai said...

Oh its a gorgeous card! Love everything about it! I am trying out watercolor brush pens now and am loving it!

Kathy McCluskey said...

Love your beautiful card, Virginia! The coloring and shading is so beautiful and I love the stenciled background! Thank you for sharing your awesome creativity with us!

Teri Smith said...

Virginia, your card is beautiful. The colour blending is seamless. I just love the way you have the stencil in the background fanning out from the flowers. At this time, pencil crayons are my favourite way of colouring as I find them a bit forgiving for me as I am not the best colourer by any means & I'm just trying to learn shading techniques. Truthfully, alcohol inks intimidate me big time. :(

Beautiful coloring and a beautiful card. Thanks so much for sharing xoxo

Born Again Farm Girl said...

I’ll say this the colors are vibrant and your card is beautiful !

blaze said...

Lovely card!!

JM Nus said...

Beautiful card Virginia. Loved the stencil background.

Kathy said...

I love the alcohol markers. I think they are so much smoother to apply than regular markers, and they blend better. The colors in this latest set are just delicious! And Engraved Flowers is one of my fave stamp sets....I love the detail in the petals with the lines! So rich. Thank you for sharing your inspiring talents with us here.

Melissa Forshey said...

Beautiful card. Love the colors and use of the stencil for the background./

Kathy Ferguson said...

I have some of the Artist Markers from Altenew and I love using them. I bought several other sets from other companies but didn't have the success coloring the way I do with the Altenew markers. Your card is gorgeous. I love how you stenciled a portion of the background and placed your flowers near it. I want to thank you for sharing your time and talent with us.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Oh how very beautiful! Love the new colors!

Kristen Snoozy said...

I do love my Copics but this set is so pretty I may have to give these markers a try! I am also experimenting with watercolor pencils. You are very talented and I really enjoy your posts!

Dana M said...

Simply stunning card Virginia! Love the layers and the background is the perfect touch. I have been playing around with a number of coloring mediums trying to find a favorite, my go-to is still watercoloring with ink pads

Savannagh Kacey said...

Your background stencil provides a sense of motion as if the flowers were wind-kissed. Beautiful effect!

Helen said...

A gorgeous card Virginia! Your flowers showcase the beautiful colours of the new set of markers and work perfectly with the stunning stencil background! Thanks so much for sharing your great inspiration!

JulD said...

Beautiful card! I Loved the Artist markers Set! Amazing colours!

Janet Smith said...

Beautiful card! I love how you used the stencil in the background😀

mandalj said...

How beautiful - your colouring is lovely! My favourite way to colour is with watercolour pencils.

pcm said...

pretty! i still go to my colored pencils but i am rediscovering my markers too!

Julie S. said...

Your card is beautiful and I love this color combination, it is one of my favorites. Thank you!!!!

Laura H said...

Beautiful card. I love your background technique

Stacey Kowbel said...

Such a beautiful card! I love that background behind the flowers!

Linda BL said...

Your card is so very pretty and anything but simple! I love the depth the warm brown tones you got by using the Sunburst stencil. The pinks used in the flowers complement the warm browns. They are being referred to as purples. ( on others blogs) but they look pink to me! I have been waiting for the colors they have used in set D as they are some of my favorites.

Yasmine said...

Beautiful card and fabulous colors! Thanks for the inspiration.

Lisa Byers said...

I love the stamp set you used to showcase these markers. Your coloring and blending is fabulous. I am so glad they made these markers in three Color families so it is so easy to blend. My favorite medium is probably copics but I love watercolors too. It varies on the project.

Nandini said...

Love the card. The stencilled background looks great. I love the colours in this set. I love colouring with distress inks and Zigs.

Karthikha said...

Such a beautiful card! Love the stencil work too :)

Susan Powell said...

Love the stencil background! Such a pretty card.

Mirella said...

How gorgeous is this!? I love that stencilled background, too, it goes so well together!

Nana Griffin said...

Such a beautiful card. My favorite color medium is copic markers but I have a set of these on the way so I am sure they will be right there too in my choice.

whoistracy said...

So pretty! I love the background you made and those few sequins you added.

Margarita Navarro-Rivera said...

Love your card, Virginia. That background is fantastic!

Andrea Hastilow said...

I do love these new colours & that Altenew take the work out of matching up shades. Your flowers are coloured fabulously & I'm adoring that background effect. Thank you for the inspiration.

Lee Newton said...

Love the purpley-pinks and the turquois colors here -- forgeous.

Susan D said...

Your card is so pretty! I really like how you did the background stencil too! Thank you for your continued inspiration 😊

Unknown said...

Beautiful card. I really like the colors and the shading.

BrendaLea, the Prpldy said...

Virginia, your card is stunning! The starburst stencil looks great behind the floral arrangement. I believe I would have to get this set of markers first, as the colors are so beautiful.

Linnea S said...

luv how you integrated the browns and the stencil

Dee Earnshaw said...

love this design of this gorgeous card:)

Jenniferk said...

My favourite colouring medium is watercolour, I love the Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers! Your card is gorgeous, I think you coloured the Engraved Flowers so beautifully and I think the stencil background looks amazing. Altenws new Alcohol Marker set D has such beautiful colours.

Cathy Lillie said...

Lovely card design! There's some really pretty colors in this new set, and I'd love to give alcohol markers a try. Currently I work with colored pencils.

Michele Clay said...

You always make such stunning cards, Virginia! These new colors in the markers are gorgeous!

Sheila said...

Your work is fantastic. The direction of the stenciled pattern matches the direction that the flower is pointing. Thus there is a natural flow of the eye. Super! Love the colors and that the stenciled background is light enough to be seen, but doesn't take over the card..

Annalisa Young said...

I think my favorite coloring medium is watercolor, but I think the one I'm best at is colored pencils. I love this card; the engraved blooms are always stunning, and they look especially nice with the stencil you chose. Thanks for sharing with us!

Lisa Moline said...

Beautiful card! I love the new colors, especially the purple hues! My favorite coloring medium is probably copics but watercolor is also one I love, I need lots of practice at both but it's fun to play!

Annette Reed said...

Your card is fabulous! I love the stenciling and your coloring is lovely.

Heidi Rees said...

Virginia, I love your card! The colors are so pretty and I love the background!

Handmade by Hanneke said...

Beautiful card! I love how you used the sunburst stencil to bring the focus to the gorgeous center flower. Thanks for the inspiration.

Judie said...

Wonderful card! The stencil really ties the card together and brings the focus on the flower!

mindy1414 said...

Your card is fabulous Virginia!! I always love seeing what you create and this card is no exception. This Artist Marker Set D is definitely my favorite and the beginning of my collection of these amazing markers lol. Thank you for always sharing your creations and for the wonderful inspiration!

Anita Szokol said...

Beautiful card, I love the colors!

Melissa Smith said...

What a gorgeous card! I love your coloring and that stamp set. Using the sunburst stencil the way you did was just the right touch. I am new to making cards, so I have used pencils and alcohol markers more than anything. This year my goal is to learn techniques to watercolor. You all are so talented! I'm learning a lot from the blog hops!

Kathleen C. said...

I just love this new release! I have never used watercolor markers, but these color combinations are so gorgeous and vibrant. Wonderful work Virginia!

Hummingbird said...
