1 Image - 3 Ways of Coloring ... Part 3: Alcohol Markers

Hi there,

this is the third and last part of my series "1 Image - 3 Ways of Coloring" that I created for the Karten-Kunst Blog.

I will show you three cards with the same focal image which has been colored with Colored Pencils, Watercolor Pencils and Alcohol Markers.

Today, we will use Alcohol Markers - a coloring medium very popular among cardmakers for the colors are so very vibrant and you can achieve beautiful blending:

How do I make my DIY Alcohol Ink Markers?
  • fill sixty drops of Alcohol Ink into an empty marker from the Marker Maker Refill Pack
  • sixty drops may sound like much but don't worry, you will still have plenty of Alcohol Ink left in your bottle (see picture below)

Here is a close-up of the cute little turtle:

Here are all the close-ups of the three different ways of coloring again (Alcohol Marker on the left, Watercolor Pencil in the middle and Colored Pencil on the right). Which one do you like best?

Here are the links to the other two posts of this series:
