Hello Hollowers!

I am so thrilled to be joining the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop today!

In today’s video, I show you 5 different ways to use these amazing markers. You should have hopped over to me from Lilith Eeckels blog!!!! Let’s take a look at the video and see how I made all of the cards shown above, shall we?

So many techniques using these watercolors. Which one did you like the best? I personally love the addition of the SALT! Here are a few photos of the cards made in the video! These markers are so versatile, they sky is the limit!

This card was super simple, I just stamped the designs over the top in black in and matted on my favorite black velvet cardstock (click here to get 30% off) and then used the AlteNew miss you die on top.

For this I did double embossing but heat embossing the trees over the top, be a little delicate with you heat gun where you already have the embossing powder but it can be done and it gives a great effect, then I stamped the hay in a subtle shade to add some interest in the bottom, the happy birthday is also on black velvet with AlteNew white embossing powder.

A classic combination of black velvet matting here and then a couple of black Nuvo drops and the copper AlteNew embossing powder to add a simple sentiment.

I am in love with this die, I think this is my favorite card; the sentiment is gold Altenew embossing powder.  black velvet matting (of course!).

Again just clean and simple, my classic back matting and then white embossing powder on the black cardstock for the thank you.

Next up on the hop is Laurel Beard!


As always, the supplies I used are linked below in the order as they appear on the video!
