Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Himalayan Poppy & Coloring Pencils & More Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)
Paint-A-Flower: Himalayan Poppy
Outline Stamp Set

Hello Friends! I am giddy excited to share all the new Coloring mediums released from ALTENEW today :)

DISCLAMER: Unknown to me, when coloring with the Hawaiian Shores Brush & Fine Tip Pens for the first time, I was experiencing a vision problem that wasn't discovered until after the cards were completed and submitted to the gallery.  All is well now :) I was freaking out over the rapid decline in my ability to add color to images though!

I REALLY love the fact that these pens have the two different ends: Brush and Fine. 
After stamping the Paint-A-Flower: Himalayan Poppy Outline Stamp Set several times with a light gray ink, I attempted a no-line coloring, soft look. But as you can see in the card below, that didn't happen! 
I ended up re-stamping the two middle outline images again in black ink...then used the black Hawaiian Shores Brush & Fine Tip Pen to FREE-HAND, RE-LINE the blooms, stems, and leaves.

On a second card I added a free-hand frame showing the Brush end and Fine end of the markers. 

Below are the new Hawaiian Shores Brush & Fine Tip Pens...the ones sticking out of the case are the ones I used for today's cards.

So glad to have Masking Fluid from Altenew too!

Meet my new coloring detail BESTIES!! Keeping the Woodless Coloring Pencils on my desk for quick and easy touch-ups.


Check out the  Monochrome Shading Pencils:

The Monochrome Shading Pencils can be used alone for dramatic monotone coloring. Or along with the Woodless Coloring Pencils to add shadows to all your coloring projects.

I practiced using the Monochrome Shading Pencils set on the outline image from In the Woodland Stamp set.
