Why I Like Coloring with Karin Markers + Simon’s March 2021 Card Kit

I have been enjoying coloring with the Karin Markers of late. Have you tried them? They are so easy to use and have great vibrancy. In the two cards I made with the Simon Says Stamp March 2021 Card Kit, I’m coloring the window scenes with Karin markers!
This first card uses a no line watercolor technique; I stamped a Spring Windows scene with Antique Linen Distress Ink so that the lines would fade as I color. After coloring, I cut out the window panes out to turn it into a shaker card. I also partially cut the shutters so that they could have foam tape behind them for a little lift off the card.
My second card uses the other window image from the Spring Windows set, but this one is stamped with black ink. I colored it with Karin Markers and added glitter to the image as I did for my first card.
I’ve been really enjoying these Karin Markers and coloring with them. In the video, I discuss a lot of my favorite features, including:
- The felt tips are so much easier to work with AND control
- They are super vibrant, which I love
- Can be used direct to paper or working from a hard board
- Colors blend out easily with little to no effort
There are a lot of great benefits to using these markers, so be sure to tune into the video at the top of this post to hear my thoughts. I was on the fence about purchasing them initially because I had Zig markers already – but these are so much more convenient and enjoyable to use! I am definitely glad I got them!
