ShinHan Touch Alcohol Markers - Fun Techniques Pt. 2

Last week, I had a fun example of two-color blending using our ShinHan Touch markers. This week, it's all about the Colorless Blender Marker. 

I love creating this look of gradual color softening, and it's really easy to do with a Colorless Blender Marker. Simply start with two-color blending (I used Light Orange followed by Tender Pink), and then color the edges with the blender. The name isn't exactly correct - the marker doesn't blend, but rather acts as an eraser. So it will lighten any color and create a soft look.

I love creating stamped and colored squares because it makes it so easy to just pop them onto a card. This one took 5 minutes - I used Pattern 22 from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 2, Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp setBrushed paper, a mini clothespin and a retired wood button. Easy peasy. 

Stay tuned for more marker art! Plus I'll be posting info on the marker class next week!!

Such a pretty card! Do you use a special ink that doesn't smear when you color? I've tried basic black dye ink and it smears...

Yep - I use Archival Black. You can also use the pigment inks. Dye-based ink will always smear with alcohol markers (same with solvent inks like Staz-On).
