House Mouse Halloween Card & Altered Embellishments with Ohuhu Brush Markers!

This cute Halloween card will be sure to delight people of any age this season!

 

Today I will show you how versatile alcohol-based markers can be in your cardmaking. Not only can you use your markers to create vibrant, streak-free, blended images but you can also use it to tint your ribbons and light-colored embellishments to match!

 

My first tip when using Ohuhu alcohol-based markers is to swatch them all out on the paper you like to color on as markers look different on different papers. Keep this swatch in your marker bag so it is handy when you color.

I colored the image quite simply layering colors from lightest to darkest. This stamp has stippling (little dots to indicate shading) so I put my shadows there. Here are the colors I used:

 

Pumpkin skin: Y4, YR3, Y3, Y2 over everything at the end

Pumpkin flesh: Y3

Pumpkin inside BR1

Stem: GY5, Y3

Mice: WG1, WG3

Matchbook: G9

Candlestick: G9, G4

Metal on Spoon and Knife and ground shadows: CG2, GG3

Knife handle: R4, R8

To add a background I used make-up brushes to apply stamping ink in teal and green. You could also use a cotton ball and chalk to add color. It is quicker and easier than trying to color all of that area with a marker!

 

 

It can be tricky, and expensive, to find the perfect ribbons and embellishments to match a card but luckily if you have a set of alcohol markers you can tint the embellishments you have to match! Here I am using teal and green markers to tint some white seam binding ribbon.

Simply use the chisel and of your marker to apply a streak of color (or colors for a more interesting look) and spritz with rubbing alcohol to make the colors soften and blend.

I let my ribbon dry all balled up for a vintage crinkled effect but you can also let it dry flat for a smooth look. Alcohol ink will stain most surfaces so make sure to let it dry someplace you are not concerned with.

You can also color white or light-colored embellishments like buttons and pearls! The brush end of the marker works better for coloring hard, non-porous items.

Once all of your ribbon and embellishments are dried you can mat your image on patterned paper and tie the ribbon around it before adhering it to your card base. Then adhere your buttons and pearls for a finished look.

So now you know how to make perfectly matched accessories for any card or paper project you like using Ohuhu dual-tipped alcohol markers!

If not, a video might help!
