Altenew December 2018 Markers/Embellishments Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to my stop on the hop celebrating the release of Altenew's December 2018 Markers and Embellishments. I am honored to share my creations with you today. If you are hopping from the beginning, you should be arriving from the blog of  the lovely Lydia Evans! ( the full hop list is at the end of this post)

I'm extremely excited to see the release of more Artist Markers since they are the only alcohol markers that I have been able to use. Other brands have such strong fumes that give me headaches and hives when using them. And the blending solutions; forget about it! However, I have not had any problems with the Altenew Artist Markers, YAY! NO Fumes, No headaches, no hives..just HAPPY coloring! 
Here are the two new sets and the blender marker:
Artist Markers Colorless Blender
Artist Markers Set E
Artist Markers Primary Colors Set
Here are three cards I colored for today's Bloghop featuring Artist Markers Set E on the Inked Flora and Inked Rose stamp sets.
*******
I first started out by coloring the smaller bloom from Inked Flora in my normal flicky-color-mashing style and no colorless blender:

LOVING the many shades of Orange in this Artist Marker set E which are named and coordinate with the Warm and Cozy Crisp Ink set. The Greens coordinate with Tropical Forest Crisp Ink set, and the Grays coordinate with Rock Collection Crisp Inks set.
I colored the Leafy Wreath die and cut it apart for filler to go along with the greenery for my arrangement.Which I layered onto an A2 panel covered with Tuxedo Washi Tape and embellished with acetate flourish from Reflection Collection Die Cuts. The SMILE button popped out of a wooden embellishment from the Reflection Collection Epoxy Buttons & Wood Veneer Bundle.
*******
Speaking of Scrapbook embellishments, here are the NEWEST release of  Enamel Dots, Die-Cut Butterfly stickers, Acetate Butterflies, and Year Round word Acetate die-cuts.
 
Embellishment Bundle

My next card has the largest bloom from Inked Flora colored with the Artist Markers and the Colorless Blender
Learning to use the Colorless Blender was an interesting process! It was interesting how I could start with R823 and blend it with R702, R318, and Y608 to get a deep burgundy! It was fun mixing the colors to see what I could come up with.
Other Altenew supplies used:
Leaves and 'buds'Inked Rose stamp set
LOVE from Reflection Collection Die Cuts
Heart texture on white panel Sewn with Love Die Set
Gold rings: Fine Frames Circles Die
Black branches: Create-A-Wreath Die Set
Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder

*******
More Colorless Blender play on the Inked Rose stamp set for my last card today :
 This time I colored with the new Oranges, Grays and several Yellows from Artist Marker set B. 
 LOVING the Dotted Washi Tape as a quick background and my FAVORITE Dots in Maple Washi TapeEpic is fromReflection Collection Die Cuts
*******
Well, I certainly enjoyed coloring with the new markers! 
I have a quick video sharing the unique packaging of the new Artist markers, making it easy to store them horizontally. You can watch the video below, on on my YouTube Channel in HD.
