Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishment Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hi there!

Welcome to the ALTENEW December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop!   You are arriving from Norine's blog.

I am always floored when Altenew invites me to be part of their release blogs, as i get to play with their beautiful new releases and then show you how fun they are.  Well this time, I was sent the new Alcohol markers - Set E- and the Colorless Blender, and it was love at the first swatch.




The dual tip of the markers make them a perfect tool to color and shade your stamps, dies, etc.  For the first project, I decided to use the Leaf Canopy stamp an embossed it with gold powder on vellum. then used the green tones of the Altenew Marker set E to color vellum.






Since the markers are alcohol based, they go like butter on vellum without creating the curl that water produces on it.   I used the Colorless Blender marker to help me move the ink around the leaves, and then created this simple card.  Love the softness of the color vellum on the white card.   Imagine all the possibilities!





Now let me show you how i used the rest of the colors in the Marker set E can create a very impactful page that combines some of the beautiful Altenew Stamps, Dies, Stencils and Inks in one page.




For this page  i chose to color the stamp images of the Perfectly Perfect florals with the markers in the E set.  This time i decidede to mix some of the  grey marker tones to soften the orange tones of the flowers.   All those details in the flowers were created using just the markers in the set.  Like I said, Oh, the Possibilities!  Here is a small video that shows you how this page came together:



Love how this layout turned out, definitely one of my favorites created to-date using Altenew products.  The color, the florals, the frames, oh just so perfect for the picture of my daughter's first day of grade 11.


Make sure you stop by the Altenew shop to check the other set of Alcohol markers being released, as well as all the new embellishments.  So much to chose from, and now to the fun part of this post, the

  21. Love your coloring on vellum after heat embossing with gold. Did you do that on the front side or the back side? I have heard others have trouble doing it on the vellum. The heat makes the vellum curl. What did you use for embossing the gold...Versamark or some ink that holds the embossing powder? Love your scrapbook page with pink rectangle frames and flower groupings. Thanks for sharing this technique.
