Happy Cactus - Altenew Card

Good morning! A few weeks back I was privileged to be part of the new release hop for Altenew - and share a little look at this card with one of the new sets. I actually stamped and colored the image on this as a make-n-take at CHA - then came home and trimmed it up to make it into this card.

In particular, I wanted to talk about the Altenew markers that I got to play with at CHA to color this. I have been pretty attached to my Copic markers, and not fallen in love with any others that I have tried, so I was a little skeptical about these. I have to say though - I absolutely fell in LOVE with these! Why? Well, first of all, they have a nice soft brush tip that felt very similar to Copics. They were nice and juicy with lots of color in them. And...I LOVE the fact that they came in color blending families! They worked so beautifully together - and it was super easy to blend with them! It also didn't hurt that they matched the ink colors pretty beautifully as well!

This set is super cute as well! It is called Be Strong, and filled with lots of super cute images and sentiments.
