*Video: Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived from The Hedgehog Hollow!!! If you get lost along the way, head to this post to start from the beginning. Today I have three cards and a video showcasing these gorgeous markers! I use the same stamp set on both cards but the results are quite different. Let’s watch the video:

The Altenew Watercolor Brush markers are  filled with water-based color and coordinates with their ink.  The real brush tips allow you to create broad and fine strokes.  The markers result in vibrant colors, but adding a bit of water can also result in softer colors, as you can see from the two cards I made in the video.

A few close ups of the cards:


Next up on the hop is Virginia Lu!!
