That's not all!
This is the release you all have been waiting for – Altenew is releasing NEW alcohol markers today! We are so excited to reveal two new marker sets: Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F and Water Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set G, along with coordinating alcohol inks.
Our Artist Markers are alcohol-based, allowing you to beautifully blend colors to any stamped images. Our wide range of stamps is perfect for these markers. You can also easily pair them with our Crisp Dye Inks to take your coloring to the next level! The colors in this set are designed to be as close as possible to our existing ink colors, so you can take the color guessing game out of the way when coloring.
I used all the markers from both sets to color my card. So, let's begin!
Stamp the Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Outline Stamp onto a panel of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock in Permanent Black Crisp Ink. Next, use the colors from the Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Markers Set to color the pink and yellow flowers along with the green leaves. To color, make sure to start with the darkest moving on to the lighter shades in the color family.
The colors in the Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Markers Set (Set F) are as follows:
Pink: Razzleberry, Rubellite, Pinkalicious, and Pink Diamond
Yellow: Honey Drizzle, Maple Yellow, Fresh Lemon, and Citrus Burst
Green: Mountain Pine, Shadow Creek, Fresh Leaf, and Firefly
For the purple, teal, and browns, I used the Water Garden Artist Alcohol Marker Set (Set G). The colors in this set are as follows:
Purple: Andromeda, Ultramarine, Hydrangea, and Wisteria
Teal: Galactic Stream, Teal Cave, Aqualicious, and Dew Drops
Brown: Milk Chocolate, Almond Butter, Hazelnut, and Vanilla Cream
In the video, I share tips and tricks on how to color “wood” and achieve a faux woodgrain look, so do not miss it! This has everything to do with switching between your nibs and the marker shades! To create the light vertical lines on the wood, go over the area continuously with the lightest color marker, in this case, Vanilla Cream Artist Alcohol Marker. And then around it, I added woodgrain with darker shades. But I also kept going over those darker shades with a lighter marker (bullet nib) to get a more natural-looking pattern.
Once my coloring is done, I will move on to the watercolor. For this, I will use greens from the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set and paint my background. To enhance the shadows in the background and show depth in my “faux foliage”, I will also add a bit of Rock Collection pigment which is essentially a dark gray pigment.
After this, I will use Fine Liner Pen Set to add a few pen details. This includes adding to the woodgrain pattern and enhancing the outlines. This helps make your image stand out. And to make the flowers pop a bit more, I will also add additional details with a white gel pen. These are just dots of various sizes on the flower centers, but they make such a huge difference.
You can watch the process video below or on YouTube.

A wonderful pallet of colors from both marker sets… gorgeous. What an array of inks and being able to change the nibs is billiant!! The clematis stamp is so sweet, reminds me of my mother in laws front porch. Wonderful release for every level of colorist.

I did not follow the order of the blogs perfectly. In fact, I left Altenew’s blog for last. I have been blown away by the awesome talent of the artists that showcased the Clematis stamp set and the alcohol markers. I love the brilliant colors of the markers. They seem to blend very well. The stamp set does total justice to a favorite flower. Thank you all of the inspiration.
What a beautiful and unique looking stamp set!! I love the wood planks around the flowers!
