Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Lisa Spangler's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to the Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There is a new addition to the Altenew collection of markers being released today, and I’m very excited about it! New Watercolour Brush Markers are simply amazing and I love that they perfectly coordinate with Altenew line of colour families! The barrel of each marker is filled with water-based colour, the flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes and colour can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, October 10th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 12/10/2018.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $20 gift certificate!

Today I've created a simple card just to give you a simple idea of using the new markers. I started with Fantasy Floral 3D Die Set and die cut a flower and few leaves out of watercolour paper. Then I used the watercolour markers to colour them. I decided to go for the following colours: Rubellite, Autumn Blaze, Warm Sunshine, Moss and Dusk.

you are my world

I slightly diluted my colours with a few drops of water and dabbed the die-cuts with a paper towel while the paint was still wet. The sentiment comes from Circled Sentiments Stamp Set and was die-cut using die from Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set.

you are my world


That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Zinia Redo and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.


Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop!
