Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, friends! I’m part of the Altenew Watercolor Brush Marker Release Blog Hop today! I created a watercolor floral card for you. You can find all the details for new products and giveaways below.

You should have arrived from the most talented Kristina Pokazanieva’s Blog and the next stop on the hop is my dear friend Kelly Latevola’s Blog. If you lose your place or need more information, you can begin on the Altenew Card Blog.


Affiliate links may be used in this post. You can find the lists of my favorite supplies here.

I started by stamping images from Engraved Flowers with black ink on watercolor paper. I watercolored them loosely with the new watercolor brush markers.

I die-cut them using the coordinating dies. For the base, I added splatters by adding some color to my media mat and using a plain wet brush.

I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on black cardstock. I arranged the images and sentiment over the base and added some gems.

All products are linked below.


Check out the new release here! You can also find it at Simon Says Stamp or Ellen Hutson.


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 for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on January 19th.

Optional Giveaway: Altenew is also offering my readers a chance to win a $20 gift certificate by leaving a comment on my blog post. I will announce the winner here by January 16th (list of giveaways/winners can be found here as well).

    The colors chosen really accentuate the design. So bright and really kind of tropical. Good job.

    This is what I love about these markers….they are vivid and juicy and easy to blend smoothly or bloomy (I’m just making up words🤣). Beautifully done!
