  11. Gorgeous card, Therese! I love your unique design, and how you created the background! Amazing job with these new alcohol markers 🙂

  12. Loved to watch how you were just playing with your new markers and having fun along the way. I had already noticed the brush indication on the marker was just the other way around from my new Copics.

  13. Your card is awesome ! The more I go on with the blog hop, the more I want to order these markers, they really look great, specially with the thin and brush tips.

  14. I love your fun graphic design. Thank you for sharing and I’m so glad I ordered a set of the markers.

  20. Love your video. You show these new pens off perfectly. Only problem is I now NEED them. Love the colours and the dotty background and I love the angles on your card.

  26. Love your card and all your cards. Thank You for the videos too they are very enjoyable and so easy to follow.

  27. Gorgeous card and fabulous showcase/review of the new markers! I’m daunted by the price of copics, living where I do in Canada, (which explains why I have but a handful that I don’t use because none blends with another…sighhhh) so these are a marvelous, fresh alternative! Love that they match the inks, which I do have and love! Thank you for the inspiration….

  28. Therese –
    LOVE your card – wonderful coloring & layout! Thanks for your info about the Altenew markers – I definitely think I will try them out.

  29. Love everything about this card – elegant layout. The bullet tip is perfect for the dot technique especially to achieve a fine art finish.

  30. So pretty! I love how you used dots and blending together. The colors are gorgeous. I’ve been taking your class at Altenew – Color Your Day. Love your voice and great tips!

  31. You always seem todo the unexpected…love it. I’m excited to get these markers. I hope they keep coming.

  32. Beautiful card, love the bits hanging over the edges. Thanks for showing both the brush and bullet tips of the markers in use!

    1. I simply adore this card. The new marker colors are very vibrant. Thanks for the chance. Hugs, Nellie.

  33. How clever to use blank card pieces with your stamped/colored design. It draws the eye right to the vibrant colors.

  34. Such a pretty card, thanks for the inspiration and a chance to win! Those markers are on my wish list!

  40. A great introduction to the new markers by Altenew, Therese! A bonus too, to have matching inks and markers – your card is fab!

  41. What a pretty card and a different shape. I am beginning to really like these markers a lot. I love colors and these markers are colorful. Now when they make a yellow one my life will be complete! LOL The shape of your card is so different and the flowers look like flowers in a coloring book, they don’t look real. I like your card a lot. Thank you for letting us see it and participating in the hop. I look forward to winning something and going on to the next blogger.

  42. Hi Therese, Love your card, Your colouring is lovely and I like the dotted idea too, I like that light blue C/S on an angle and judging out on the side, I might have to CASE it on one of my cards, great idea, Thanks for sharing, Those markers look very nice!! Cheers Anna.

  43. The markers look great but when you are a novice cardmaker, who already has stampin up and zig markers, as well as watercolour pencils, it’s a real dilemma!! Can I justify a new set of markers!! 😉 Will be thinking seriously about them! The matching colour groups are a real temptation! Hmm – a birthday is coming up!! 🙂

  44. Absolutely stunning Therese, as usual ! These new markers look so great ! Love your dots background ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  45. Love the card and how amazing do the artist markers look.
    Really love the design elements in your cards.
    Thanks so much for all the inspiration.

  46. The Altenew colors are so wonderful; these markers are very tempting. I recently bought Bamboo Rose and I love your card.

  47. I love how your card all came together! The pink dots are so effective, but every time I see someone using that technique, my brain starts to rebel. I like the look (a lot)–it just looks so tedious!!! Having the offset pop of color and the angles keep the project lively and very interesting. I love the font of the sentiment too! Thank you.

  48. Really pretty card! I really like how you did your background and how you used all three colour families!

  49. Love the dot detail! Beautiful card 🙂 Altenew was very smart to come out with a collection of colors. I’d love the chance to purchase my first alcohol markers 🙂 Thank you for the inspiration!

  50. Love the way you colored! So beautiful! Great inspiration!Thanks for sharing and the chance to win!
    God bless!

  51. Fun Coloring…but the card design is knocking my hat off!! LOVE that bit of blue paper at an angle, it gives it a kimono kind of look:)

  52. Thanks for the detailed look at the markers (I’m excited!). Great mix of graphic and floral on your card, like the “non rectangular” bottom panel. Congrats on the progress with your ATG gun – I have a love/HATE relationship with mine too!!!

  53. I really like your card. I watched your video 3 times! Love how you did the background. I must try that!

  54. I love how you colored the flowers and the dotted background. The background is just fun! I am falling in love with these markers!

  55. Terese, you’re challenging my idea of a traditional card shape – very unique and creative with your angles!

  56. Thank you so much for the video as it gives me a better look at the new markers and how well it colors. You covered all the questions I had and the bonus was a beautiful card at the end! AWESOME!!!

  57. Gorgeous card, I love how you created the background with all the little dots, it really looked amazing! Thank you for a great video tutorial as well!

  58. Love the coloring and now I not only have to have the markers but need the bamboo rose stamp set!

  59. Love your card and the video, thank you. This new line of alcohol markers from Altenew take the guess work from choosing the layers for coloring.
