Silky and Smooth Alcohol Marker Card

With Valentine’s Day around 3 weeks away, I wanted to make a card with a very heart-felt sentiment. The first thing that came to mind when I was researching the look of Camellia Waterhouse (Camellia x williamsii ‘E.G. Waterhouse’) was the polished stone appearance of the petals. I drew inspiration from the actual color palette of ‘E.G. Waterhouse’ and rose quartz polished stones. As for the supporting leaves, I highlighted the vein pattern and captured the leathery look of the foliage.

  1. I stamped the main cluster images twice onto smooth 100 lb white cardstock.
  2. I used a mix of Altenew Artist Markers in Sunshine Valley Garden and other sets to color the petals first. I started from darkest color to lightest to get a smooth blend between colors.
  3. I also used the Sunshine Valley Garden Marker Set to color the supporting foliage, making note the leave a highlight for the veining pattern.
  4. To crisp and further refine outlines, I used the Woodless Coloring Pencils to deepen areas of petal overlap. I used the Woodless Coloring Pencils to also enhance the leaves.
  5. I added both Jet Black and Pure White Ink Spray splatters throughout the card.
  6. I stamped the sentiment using Obsidian Pigment Ink.
  7. Finally I mounted the colored card panel onto my folded note card base.

Do you all prefer a numbered/bulleted system when it comes to describing my card design? Or would you prefer I leave them in fragmented paragraphs with images in between? I have seen many talented crafters recreating or drawing inspiration from my cards and I want to make the steps more accessible. Let me know in the comments what is easier to read and/or follow on my blog, please. I appreciate your engagement and feedback!

  1. Gorgeous card with lovely colors; the no line coloring in pink is lush. I personally prefer the bulleted card receipe. Thanks for sharing the inspiration and your lovely piece.


  2. Your Camellias look so realistic! The foliage is spot on. Camellias are my favorite flowers. I live a little far north (Virginia) to grow many varieties but I have one and the leaves look just like yours. Further south I have seen many varieties, some looking like roses!


  3. Absolutley gorgeous Jaycee! I love your stunning colouring as always. I enjoy reading how you create. Today’s set up is perfect, but either works for me. Thanks for considering us and the great inspiration. Stay safe! 🙂


  4. This was a beautiful Card! Also, I like the bulleted format and think you could do a combo of bullet points with pictures.


  5. I have several really old camellia bushes in the yard and your coloring is spot on. They are such lovely flower. Numbering the instructions are great but either one will be fine.


  6. I am guessing you stamped the outline image in the limestone? I have been debating what color ink to get for no line coloring and it is nice to see examples.
