ShinHan Touch Alcohol Markers - Fun Techniques Pt. 1

I've been wanting to have a class on our ShinHan Touch alcohol markers for awhile now, and I finally feel like I've spent enough time using them to teach a class. I'll be announcing the date and details soon, but in the meantime, I'm going to showcase some of the techniques I'll be teaching. 

I used the adorable Tweet Me stamp set to showcase two-color blending. This is a very simple way to color, but it really does allow you to get the most out of a few markers. I used the Cerulean Blue and Turquoise Blue markers with our Archival Black Ink. You can do this technique with any two markers that are similar in color. 

What I love about our markers is that they coordinate perfectly with all our papers. I used the retired Skylark paper and assortment, along with Silver Washi Tape and Clear Sparkles. These two markers alone go with 25 of our retired paper packs (back to 2011) and 8 of our current paper packs (thank you Evernote!). 

Stay tuned for more marker art and an update on the marker class!
