Speaking of Winners . . .
I need to announce the lucky winner from November 8th's Blog hop and that is
Alright, are you ready to talk Markers?
Altenew already has one set of 12 "Set A" Today They are releasing two more sets.
"Set B" and "Set C" are just filled with beautiful colors.
They are also offering discounts if you buy them in a bundle.
I actually used all three sets to create my card for today.
I first stamped and masked my scene. When you're creating a one layer card you want to start with whatever will be in the foreground. For this card that was my flower and then the cup.
I left all the masks in place and added an additional one to the bottom of the card for my table top. I put down some distress inks to create a background and then removed all my masks to get coloring!
The colors included in these sets blend really easily together so there's no guess work. Plus, the markers are one of the few alcohol markers that have a brush nib which I love! I don't even remember how to color without them :/
I did do a video but it's a long hop so feel free to skip it.
Or come back and check it out. It'll be here :)
