Welcome to a fun blog hop! A new set of brush markers by Altenew has just been released and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways.

The set comes with 10 brush markers in all the colors of the rainbow. It;s a great addition to your collection if you have their first set but if you don’t it’s a great way to start since it has all the basic colors you need!

And here is my card using these markers!

close-up photos

I used one of the gorgeous flowers from the Inked Flora Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). Love those sketchy lines and the artist look and feel to it. Plus they pair up beautifully with the watercolor look. Fo rcoloring everything I used only colors from the Watercolor Brush Markers – Winter Wonderland Set( ALTN | SSS ).

Notice that I didn’t care going outside the lines. I think it adds to the loose watercolor look I was going for. But you can always be neater and remember that if you emboss your image then you have separated areas to work with. This will ensure that your colors will not bloom into each other between petals … depends on the look you are going for.

I combined a couple of green shades for the leaves and I did the same with reds for the petals. I worked on watercolor paper and the markers  blend and bloom beautifully! As my background I used a patterned paper from the Verdant Walk 6×6 Paper Pack( ALTN | SSS ). Those black brush strokes on that paper really complete the look.

    I like the white outline on the petals. I’ll have to borrow that idea when I work in my art journals.

    These water brush markers are amazing! I’m looking forward to trying them! Your card is just beautiful, and I love that you encourage us to try a more sketchy and messy look…not to worry about going outside the lines! I’ve got to try that too! : ). Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love the color of your flower! It’s so pretty! I’m thinking I am really going to like these markers. You also used my favorite color in the whole wide world, yellow! That is a big plus in my book! I want to see just how these markers work & I can do that when I win. I’m really liking this hop!
