Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi! Altenew has just released a set of watercolor brush markers! We celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from the Altenew Card Blog. Your next stop is the super talented Erum Tasneem.

The set of watercolor brush markers is called Spring Garden and it comes with 10 colors. The markers have a bristle fine tip brush and they are really easy to use. You can use them directly on your project, dilute them with water for a softer look and even blend them together for different color combos.

Here are the colors that you get in the set

For my project today I will show you how you can use these markers to stamp. You will end up with that gorgeous loose watercolor look, without any effort at all!

The flowers look stunning as if I am professional in watercoloring… but I cheated… it’s all stamping and you can watch the video below to see how!

For my first card I combined Warm Sunshine and Autumn Blaze for the flowers and Moss for the leaves. The stamp set I used is Build-A-Flower: Anemone Coronaria ( ALTN | SSS ).

For this card I combined Autumn Blaze and Rubellite for the flowers and Limeade and Moss for the leaves. The stamp set I used is Fabulous Floral Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS | SBC ).

For the background I created a panel using the Dotted Washi Tape ( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) and the thanks die cut comes from the Script Words 2 Die Set ( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) that I keep using again and again.
