Full Bloom : Altenew Statement Flowers

 Hiya Crafters,

Past 2 months were too busy churning cards for my blog and its just continuing this month too but with a change. Making cards but scheduling for later dates. Yeah, busy making Guest designing projects and so personal projects taking back seat at the moment. Yet squeezed some time today and whipped a card using my new products in my stash - Altenew Woodless Watercolor pencils.

Over to my card,

Colors are inspired from current Altenew Feb challenge

  • Stamped the Altenew Statement flowers stamp set floral onto Canson Montval Watercolor paper in DI Antique Linen for attempting no line coloring.
  • Then colored using Altenew Woodless Watercolor pencils.
  • They are so easy to work with.
  • Then fussy cut and splashed generously with White Calligraphy ink for added interest
  • Took a diecut watercolor panel and with green woodless pencils, made few scribblings  and wet those areas with water liberally to create an organic bg.
  • Air dried and then splashed with left over paints to finish off the bg.
  • Once dried totally, stamped sentiment from Altenew Dahlia blossoms in green ink cube.
  • Foam mounted the panel onto Olive green A2 card base and Fussy cut bloom is foam mounted with few clear dew droplets as accents.
Hope you like it!

Crafty Friend | Altenew PAF Anemone

 Hi ya All,

Totally Pro'craft'inating!!

Am supposed to finish off few Guest Designing projects yet my mind was experimental and so jumped in to try this new-to-me Medium : Gouache. I have been doing Watercoloring and Pencil coloring for some 4.5 years now in Cardmaking but this medium always intrigued me and so this baby step!

Over to my project,

  • Stamped Altenew PAF Anemone over Strathmore Toned Gray sketch paper with Altenew cube ink - Silver stone and attempted No line coloring.
  • Used Brustro Gouache 24 set colors for coloring medium today.
  • Splashed white calligraphy ink finally.
  • Added few enamel dots in floral color.
  • Matted this focal panel over an off white A2 sized top fold cardbase using double sided adhesive.
  • Sentiment is stamped from Altenew Crafty Friend stampset and die cut using Altenew Featured Sentiments Die set.
  • Sentiments are foam mounted as shown above.
Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
