Hello, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I am so THRILLED to be a guest designer for Inktoberfest! This is a month long event celebrating different ink and techniques! How AMAZING! And I’m so excited to share what I’ve created! I was given a set of alcohol markers from Marvy Le Plume to work with and these markers are super awesome! I used them with a few sets of cling mount stamps from Art Impressions! Let’s see what I made!
I’ve always loved coloring with alcohol markers, but this is my first time using markers from Marvy Le Plume – and I LOVE them! I used the set of 24 medium brush markers and I like how the brush part is flexible! And they are so pigmented!
I was also given some stamps to work with from Art Impressions! These stamps are gorgeous! I used the Rustic Container Set to stamp my images – the crate and the bucket – in the center of a piece of cardstock and used the Marvy Le Plume markers to color them in. I used stamps from the Foliage Set and Flower Set to stamp the flowers with dye inks!
There are many ways to color with alcohol markers, but I prefer to color from dark to light. The colors I used were E858, OY846, and OY845. I didn’t want to leave the handle stark white, so I added a bit of B710 for a shadow.
I used some of the same colors for the bucket. The darker part of the basket is the same as the crate above – E858, OY846, and OY845. The lighter “straps” on the bucket are with OY844 and OY841.
These markers are truly so easy to color with! And the barrel is round and fits easily into my hand. The colors are on the top of the marker and I found the marker tops to be true in color to the actual color of the marker – which is a big deal to me! I didn’t have to refer to my swatches to color my images! And I love that the pack of 24 has a broad enough range of color and the colors blend together so easily!
