CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Marker Madness

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop titled, "Marker Mardness", where we are featuring the fun uses of Close To My Heart's ShinHan Markers.

If you are arriving here from Debi's Blog, you are on the right track. Should you get lost along the way, you can find a list of participants at the bottom of this post.

One thing I have worked to improve upon is the shading that is possible with color mediums. I love that the ShinHan Markers make this process easier for me with the use of the Colorless Blender. If you have these markers, this is a must-have. In my observation, it "removes color" providing for that effortless blending that I am definitely in need of.
For coloring in these floral images from the stamp set called, "Tea-rrific", I used various marker shades to obtain the coordinating ink colors of Raspberry and Tangerine. Did you know you can actually layer on different (or the same) shades of ShinHan Markers and get a desired hue?! You can! In fact, Close To My Heart has provided a Marker Color Chart that tells you how to achieve CTMH-associated colors. You can find this FREEBIE through this link. You can also add ink on top of ink to make the shade brighter. 

Blending-challenged like I am? Try the ShinHan Markers that can make you look like a pro (or semi-pro). Contact me if you would like to know how you can get some free!
The repeated floral image was stamped from the March Stamp of the Month. I have highlighted the Tea-rrific stamp set in previous posts. You can view details about it here.
The sentiment came from this exclusive stamp set included in a Caradking Kit called, "Here for You". It comes with supplies to make 12 greeting cards. While I haven't created them yet, I will be doing so very soon! I love the beautiful floral images that can be used for various occasion. I especially appreciate the sentiments as they possess messages that are sometimes difficult for me to convey.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Consider leaving a comment and then head over to Haley's Blog to see what she has to share with you. 

Happy hoppin'!
