Alcohol Marker card: coloring class

Here's another card from my recent coloring class... this one used our ShinHan alcohol markers...

This was so much fun!!
We used the Light Orange and Golden yellow markers with the colorless Blender on the pumpkins to make the orangey colors
The Thankful Heart stamp set for images.
I am so excited to offer this class again in December.
I'll be swapping out this card for something else since Thanksgiving will be over.

Coloring Fun: watercolor paints and more

I don't know about you but I LOVE to color.  I love using a variety of coloring tools too.

I recently held a class where I taught how to use our watercolor pencils, alcohol markers, watercolor paints, blending pens and other fun things!

We played with a variety of techniques and created some 4x4 cards of the techniques.  Here is one of the cards we created - we used the new CTMH Watercolor Paints.  I love how vibrant the pigments are... they are some GREAT paints that I've had tons of fun playing with over the last few months.
I used versamark to stamp the Merry Christmas, and gold embossing powder to emboss the words and make them pretty.
I stamped the tree from the Make it Merry stamp set.
I used the Cherry red Shinhan marker to color a gem that I stuck over the center of the bow on the tree.  I used a glittery star from the pomegranate Fundamentals embellishment set to top off the tree.
Check back for more artwork this week... I photographed 17 projects tonight...wowee!
