CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Handmade Hues

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.  This month you will see us using the new ShinHan Touch Twin Markers!

Sweet Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Juniper Cardstock, Artbooking Cricut CartridgeSilver Shimmer Trim, ShinHan Markers (Light Orange, Barely Beige, Carmine), Marquee Enamel Shapes (retired), Sparkles Flourishes, and Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts (retired).

I used the ShinHan Markers in a number of different ways.  I used the to color accents.  This works great with a number of embellishments.  For my layout I colored the Silver Shimmer Trim and the Marquee Enamel Shapes.  I also used the ShinHan Markers to color and shade the Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts chipboard letters.  To do this, I first added “stripes” of each color onto the letters, then I colored and blended with the lighter color from it’s color into the darker color to blend them together.

Tip: The ShinHan Markers work well to color a number of things, including the White Enamel Stars, Silver Shimmer TrimSparkles, Dimensional Elements, and more!

Now hop on over to Melissa Robinson!
