Altenew Alcohol Marker Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi there everyone and a very happy Tuesday to you all! I am so happy you stopped by as I’m part of a very exciting Release Hop! Altenew have just released their very first set of markers! The Artist Marker Set A is now live in the Altenew store.

Here are the deets on the markers…

‘Altenew Artist Markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images. Our various range of stamps is perfect for these markers. You can also easily pair them with our Crisp Dye Inks to take your coloring to the next level! The colors in this set are designed to be as close as possible to our existing ink colors, so you can take the color guessing game out of the way when coloring.’

You should have arrived here from the awesome Svitlana, but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post.

I’m so excited about these and I hope you are too! So onto what I created with them…

For my image I used ‘Magnolias For Her’. I stamped and masked the images at the top part of my card so it looks like the flowers and leaves are hanging down from some sort of canopy. It kind of looks a little tropical to me, definitely whats need when I see the cold damp weather outside.

Once stamped I then coloured with my Altenew Artist Markers. I love that this are already in a set for you! Taking the guesswork out of what colours is just great and gives me more time just to sit and enjoy colouring rather than worrying about which pen combos will work together.

For the sentiment I used ‘Majestic Bloom Die Set’ to cut the ‘thank you’.


And what’s a blog hop without prizes?!?! Altenew is giving away $50 gift certificate to three lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog for a chance to win! You have until Monday, January 16th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Wednesday, January 18th. Also, also, also leave a comment on this post for a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate for the Altenew online store! Win, win right?!?
