April Cross Canada Blog Hop - ShinHan Markers

Welcome to our April Blog Hop featuring the ShinHan Alcohol Markers. We have 24 colours available, plus a blending marker. 

We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada, and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.

If you've arrived from Nancy's Blog then you are in the right place! However, if I am your first stop on this Blog Hop across Canada, then you are in luck, because I am the first consultant when hopping East to West.

For my first card, I used Pixie cardstock along with Sugar Rush pattern paper.  The stamp set I used for this card is Sweet Birthday and it's one of my favorite go to stamp sets when creating kids birthday cards.  For the sprinkles I stamped those using Lagoon and Blossom Ink.  I used Golden Yellow, Turquoise Blue,Cherry Pink and Tender Pink.  Now I prefer to use Memento Black Ink when colouring with the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I let the image dry for about 20 minutes before colouring to make sure I don't get any bleeding.  

Now for my next card, I used all the same products, then added the sentiment from Birthday Sparkles and did some doodling to finish off the card.  Love how this one turned out.

The next 2 cards were so much fun to create.  I used the stamp Safari Ballet, as I was inspired by the birth of April's baby( April the giraffe had her baby today, it was a boy).  I used Some Kind Wonderful paper layered ontop of Pacifica cardstock. I added some White Shimmer Trim(love this stuff). Again I used the Birthday Sparkles stamp set for the sentiment, and also used the sparkles to create a background for the cute giraffe in the tutu.  I used Clay and Light Orange ShinHan Markers blending with the Colourless Blender Marker. The Blue is Peacock Blue as my other blue has missing.....opps!

My last card, is also using Some Kinda Wonderful paper, and I used Willow cardstock and Black Shimmer Trim.  For this super cute hippo I used the Warm Grey and the Colourless Blending Marker to create the lighter shades. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the Willow cardstock in Black. The bow, tutu and ballet slippers are Tender Pink and Colourless Blending Pen to create that lighter shade.

To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
