Hi Hollowers!

Welcome to the first post of 2018! Thank you for all your kind comments on my 2017 wrap up post; I am so grateful for the wonderful Hollow family we have!  Today I have a video review of the Altenew Artist Markers; I decided to buy a set to investigate and I have fallen in love and bought the rest of the sets!  I have also done a like to like coloring with Copic markers so you can see a direct comparison.  I love the image I used from Mama Elephant and I ended up getting a little carried away and colored the image in both monotone grey and also in sepia tones.  I love them all!  I’d love to know which is your favorite; leave me a comment below and also if you would like a future tutorial on these color schemes; I always love to know what topics you would like to see.  First of all let’s look at the video…

I hope you enjoyed seeing the two side by side as well as some other ideas.  I had great fun making each card too and as I keep saying I am so happy with these markers and they are great value!  Here’s a complete supply list for you (affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you); there’s more pictures for you below as well as the Copic lists…


Of course I have all the pictures for you of each card, the two side by side…

As promised I also have the list of Copic’s I used for each card:

Monotone: N0, ,N3, N5, C0, C3, C5, C7

Color: YG01. YG03, YG07, R01, R02, R05, R08, B00, B02, B05, B06

Sepia: E00, E13, E15, E19, E41, E42, E44, E49

Thanks so much for joining for the first post of the year; I am super excited to get my new room up and running; I have lots of new supplies and I have been busily creating samples for Creativation in a few weeks; if what I have seen is anything to go by we are all going to be broke; so many new and wonderful things coming soon!!

Happy Stamping!
