CTMH Alcohol-Based Markers

Ribbon and Background Mat Colored With CTMH Ruby Set of  Markers
Recently, Close to My Heart changed their marker formula from dye-based to alcohol-based inks.  The new markers are sold in sets of twos, with one lighter and one darker. For this card, I used the new Ruby color. 

Self-Adhesive Pearls Colored With Markers
With the new markers, I colored the glossy cardstock background mat, the Opaque pearl adhesive gems, and the seam binding ribbon.  It was a very fast coloring/drying time and I love how well coordinated everything looks.

Thank you for visiting!
