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.

Today's Project

I used all the markers from both sets to color my card. So, let's begin!

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Stamp Set + Artist Alcohol Markers Set F & G | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0


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

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Stamp Set + Artist Alcohol Markers Set F & G | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

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

Adding Details:

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.

Stunning Erum, the products and your use of them always inspires me.

Sharon Gullikson February 22, 2021 - 9:42 AM

I have never grown Clematis…yet…but learned all about them from an expert speaker at my garden club. These are so cute, I would at least like to make cards with Clematis :) I am looking forward to the blog hop. Thank you so much for your generosity, and taking the time and effort to have blog hops. It keeps us more positive during these difficult times.

khcamp February 22, 2021 - 10:05 AM

Great stamp. Love all the detail. Thanks for the video I learned some new tricks. I struggle lots with coloring with the markers and shading so you have given me fresh ideas.

Janice Berbin February 22, 2021 - 10:15 AM

llong932 February 22, 2021 - 10:37 AM

Just when I start to think I don’t need anything else NEW COLORS!! I love to watch Erum demonstrate her coloring techniques. I tend to forget it’s not forbidden to mix color media — I would have struggled to get something behind the flowers and Erum just brought out her watercolor pan! Thanks for sharing.

Liz O. February 22, 2021 - 10:48 AM

Gorgeous PAF set, beautiful marker colors and amazing inspiration! Love all the details added to this wonderful card Erum. thanks for sharing!

I love floral stamps

Pamela A February 22, 2021 - 10:53 AM

Loving the new stamp set. I have several Clematis’ around my house and I’m always so happy in the spring when they have survived the winter. Also happy to two new sets of markers. I recently purchased all the markers with your last sale. I’ve wanted to try a alcohol markers but just cannot afford Copic markers. I was a little disappointed with the color blends so I’m hoping that these two new sets will round out some of those in between colors that were missing, glad to see the pinks, yellow and blues. It would be great to win a gift certificate to buy the new markers. Who am I kidding I would be great to buy it all?!?

Stacey Kowbel February 22, 2021 - 10:59 AM

Such a beautiful stamp! I love the inclusion of the lattice since this is a climbing flower. Erum’s inspiration is gorgeous!

One of my favorite sayings for cards is “May all your weeds be wildflowers.” This stamp set, with the flowers growing around the trellis, has that feel to me. Wild can be beautiful too.
