The Close To My Heart ShinHan Touch Twin Markers are such a pleasure to work with! They are high quality alcohol markers (right on par with brands like Copic), and feature a dual tip, thin and broad, ends.

Currently CTMH has 24 colors of markers, but more than 40 colors of paper. So how do you get your markers to match all that paper? Well, the artsy folks at CTMH played around with color combos and came up with very close matches.

My card for this hop uses the “Great Job” stamp set, Topiary, Goldrush, and White Daisy cardstock, and of course, the ShinHan markers! ShinHan markers are alcohol-based markers that color and blend easily. Although they are new to Close To My Heart this year, they have been around for a long time and have a reputation as being right up there with Copic markers, in terms of quality.

For this 7″ x 5″ card, I stamped the large shooting star image in the center of my White Daisy cardstock. The 2 smaller sets of shooting stars and the “Great Job” banner were stamped on scrap paper, fussy cut, and then adhered to the card with foam tape for a bit of dimension.

The ShinHan Markers used to color these images included: Turquoise Blue, Peacock Green, Vivid Green, and Marigold.

To give the card some sparkle and shine, I finished it off with some Clear Sparkles in various sizes, and some tiny Bitty Sparkles in the shooting star curls.
