ALTENEW MARKERS + COLORED PENCILS + ALTENEW MARKERS RELEASE HOP + GIVEAWAY | Nina-Marie Design

I recently was at a retreat for Kathy Racoosin’s 30-Day Coloring Challenge Road Trip. While I was there, I colored one of the floral panels you see on these cards. It was a fun weekend of sharing time with friends I know; and I got to spend time with many of you that I knew only as my blog readers or YouTube viewers!

The stamp set is the Spring Daisy set from Altenew; I had packed my new Altenew Artist Markers (along with their previously released markers) into my travel bag (plus a million other supplies! LOL!). While at the retreat, I slowly colored away with my markers and then added additional details with my Prismacolor pencils. I will say, that this did take quite a bit of time, but it was worth the effort!

During the retreat Kathy Racoosin was sharing some of her favorite tips and tricks for coloring with us. One of which was her “nooks and crannies” technique, where she takes a really dark, black pencil and adds small shaded areas in the corners of her image. Well, I thought it would be fun to take a spin off her technique and instead use a brighter color, not black. I chose a scarlet red pencil, which is very intense and contrasts the yellows and oranges in my flowers. The difference it makes to your coloring is pretty awesome!

    Nina, these are both so beautiful, the colours of the markers and pencils are amazing together. So apparently it doesn’t damage the marker tips to colour over the pencils? Good to know.

    What a great card, the colors are so vibrant and real. I love the way you used Markers and Pencils together. I new the “nooks and crannies” technique but did it never in a other color then black. So I found it awesome to see that you used a red pencil. Thank you so much for your video, I have learned a lot from it.
