Shin Han Markers Blog Hop

Have you tried Close To My Heart's new Shin Han Touch Twin markers?  You are going to get tons of great ideas along this blog hop!  (If you're already hopping, welcome from Paige's blog.  If you're just getting started, you'll leave here to go to Sarita's blog next.
Since I do NOT like to color, my favorite marker technique is to color embellishments like our silver shimmer trim with the Shin Han markers.  You can turn the silver trim into almost any color you like!  Just use the broad tip of the marker to color the shimmer trim and then let it dry for a bit.

Here are a few other projects where I've colored the silver trim:
I didn't have any pink shimmer trim for this In the Pink journal entry, so I made my own.

The gold and purple are actual shimmer trim colors that we have, but the "Pacifica" uses our Shin Han markers!  (You can find the complete details HERE if you're interested.)

How about this pretty "Thistle" trim?  The Peony Purple Shin Han is a great match.  (For more details, click HERE.)
See what I mean?

Thanks for hopping by!  Have you tried coloring embellishments with markers?  Now check out Sarita's great idea!
