Altenew Alcohol Markers are an excelant choice both in terms of range of colors but also in quality of nibs. They are the closest you can find to copics but in a better price range while still have refills and extra nibs if you need to change them. In the video I explain more on their features and why I recommend them.

  2. Thank you for showing your techniques with alcohol markers. I love that while you are showcasing the new alcohol sets from Altenew, you also remind me that I can use other alcohol markers from my stash. Thank you so much.

  5. Ooo hard call. I love the sunshine valley colors. Buttercup yellow is my favorite color and the pinks and greens play very nicely with it but water garden has such lovely pastel purples and I am missing those colors from my stash. More items for the wish list. <3

  6. Thanks so much for sharing about these new markers! I’m truly impressed with the selection of colors in each set as well as the wonderful packaging design! As a person new to using alcohol markers, I need all the help I can get. Your tips and thoughtful instruction, Vicky, along with these new products are a huge blessing! Thanks again!

  7. Your cards are beautiful and I appreciate the tips for using these markers. I don’t own alcohol markers yet but this garden valley set would be one to start out with I think!

  8. Both cards are beautiful. I recently ordered 2 floral stamps from Altenew and have used watercolor. I think I’ll give my alcohol markers a try, too. Your idea of adding a butterfly to floral images is great.

  9. Vicky I always love your cards and the different techniques you share on your You-Tube videos. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us carmakers.

  10. I love your videos, Vicky! Your coloring is amazing!!! And the cards you make are stunning! I’m more of a journal-girl and I love that you are creating journal pages on Tuesdays.

  11. Your cards are lovely. Altenew’s alcohol markers are a dream to work with, I love them and love clematis flowers.

  12. Thank you so much for the video on the Altenew markers. My first attempt with the markers I had was terrible as the markers bled through and I couldnt blend them. It was a failure. Thank you for mentioning the kind of paper I should have used…duly noted. And I will put the altenew markers on my wish list as well as their brush set. Great video.

  13. Love the new colours. Just perfect summer colours,, bright and beautiful. Love both your cards, but the first, using the pinks and yellows is my favourite. Thank you Vicky, beautiful cards as usual.

  14. Thank you for another inspiring video. I like the brush tip on these markers, will certainly put them on my wish list.

  15. Beautiful as always, Vicky.
    I like that Altenew has created several alcohol pen kits with groupings of colors that will blend together and compliment one another. It will make color choices so much easier for those who buy either of the Garden kits.

  16. Love your videos, so very helpful today. added some notes in my book to keep me on track when using alcohol markers. Beautiful cards. Thanks.

  17. Such vibrant colors! I have been considering alcohol markers for some time, but always get so confused as to what colors I need. These sets seem to be my answer. Thank you for sharing this new product.

  18. GORGEOUS colors! Love both sets, but the Sunshine Valley set is my favorite. I these sets because you have the perfect matches. Terrific!

  19. The second card is stunning. Loving the blue and purple combination. Nice that Altenew took care of the guessing game!

  23. Love love love everything you do!!! These cards are no exception. Thank you for guiding me along my art journey. Now I want new (need?) alcohol markers to add to my stash! These are such gorgeous colors.

  24. I am not a fan of clematis, but this stam and these cards are so pretty. I love the bright colors and the trellis just really makes it look so nice. Beautiful job!

  25. Beautiful cards and beautiful sets of markers. My favorite is the first set as I generally go for more traditional coloring. However The water garden set colors are gorgeous. Thanks for the video and inspiration!

  26. Your coloring is so pretty! I love both sets of new markers! Blues are my favorite shades, but I’ve been wanting a new set of yellows. I guess I will need both.

  27. Your cards are so beautiful! I love the two distinct looks with the two different sets of markers. Thank you for sharing your work!

  28. Since I don’t know much about alcohol markers, I was glad to watch your video and find out what weight paper to use. To me, alcohol markers were Sharpies, and they always leaked through the paper. You made the blending look easy with the Altenew sets.

  29. Vicky – your cards are beautiful! I love the Sunshine Valley Garden colors. Thanks for sharing your talent and your thoughts on alcohol markers!

  30. Enjoyed your video. Lovely cards. Love having 4 shades that blend well and no guess work on my part. Thanks for sharing!

  31. LOVE the newest marker colors! Because an artist can never own enough marker colors!!! Your cards are just beautiful…love that you kept the flowers monochromatic. And all those greens are perfect! Thanks for your inspiration again today, Vicky, along with your great video!

  32. Vicky these are so pretty! I wish I would have just purchased the Altenew markers before I splurged for the copics. The colors are so beautiful.
