Some Odd Girl - Warm Wishes Tia - card by Elaine Hughes

Colouring With Touch Twin Markers!

Hi folks, Elaine here from Quixotic Cards!  I’m thrilled to be joining in with Kristy’s birthday celebrations this month, alongside so many talented crafters.  There have been so many fantastic posts already this month – such a great way to celebrate!  Once again – Happy Birthday Kristy, and thank you for letting me be a part of the celebration!

Today I’ve got a card and three videos to share!  So many people have been asking me about the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers, that I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to demonstrate how well they work, as well as showing off one of Kristy’s awesome images into the bargain. I had a lot of fun creating the videos, so I hope you enjoy them and find them useful.

Note: The colouring style and techniques I use are totally applicable to other brands of alcohol marker, and the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers work well with other brands (I know, because I’ve tried them together), so they make a nice addition to an existing marker collection.  The markers are available in both brush and fine point versions (brush markers have a white barrel, fine point have a black barrel).  I use the brush markers in my video, as that happens to be my general preference for most of the colouring I do.

So, first off, here’s my card!  I chose to colour the super sweet “Warm Wishes Tia” from the Some Odd Girl range of clear stamps.  Tia was so much fun to colour, and she looks SO cute.  The sentiment is also from the Warm Wishes Tia set (which includes an adorable penguin too).

I coloured Tia with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers on Make it Colour Blending Card. The yummy papers are My Mind’s Eye 12 Days of Christmas, and I tied the bow with the Bow-Easy template.  I distressed the edges of all the layers with Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.

On to the videos!  I have broken the colouring process into three videos, so you can easily dip in and out of them as you like.  They aren’t perfect, but I hope you find them somewhat useful!  Hopefully they will give you an idea of how well the Touch Twin markers work, and why I’m so thrilled with them!



That’s it from me!  Hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that you enjoy the rest of the birthday fun this month.

    Absolutely love your coloring videos. I have been using Touch Twin Markers since February 2011. My coloring is getting better and your demo has given me the push along to practice and get better at my coloring. I hope you will do more of these videos to help the rest of us get better with our craft.
