Refresh Your Alcohol Markers Blog Hop + Giveaway

20 September 2018

Welcome to the Refresh Your Altenew Alcohol Markers blog hop and giveaway. If you have come from Erica A-B's blog you are right on track. 
I was so excited to get my marker refills as some of them were really drying up. It is so easy to do as well. 
I created a mini book cover by combing the Pattern Play Diamond set.

How To:
  1. First I stamped the image with permanent black ink.
  2. Then I used a dot technique with my markers to add colour.
This was such a fun process. Really relaxing and I didn't have to be overly concentrated on blending or getting the colouring right. 



You can see how I created the cover in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube. 


And now it is GIVEAWAY TIME:

I will draw a winner to receive a $20 gift certificate for the Altenew Store. Just leave a comment in the comment section. The winner will be announced on the 26th.

Your next stop is Michelle Short

Another great technique! Love that you chose pointillism to add the bit of color preserving some of the white space to give an “airy’ feel to your design. Thanks for the inspiration Lilith!
