Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! You should have come from Zinia Redo, but if not please start at the Altenew blog.




For my first card, I decided to make a soft no-line coloring using new watercolor markers. 



First of all, I squeezed the inks out of the markers into my pallet. Then I stamped the flowers and the leaves onto watercolor paper with Antique Linen distress inks.


 I softly watercolored the images using colors from my pallet. Once my coloring was done, I splattered my panel with silver paint. For the sentiment I die cut Love out of gold cardstock using Script Words die set and adhered on top of my panel. 


To finished my card I added a few sparkling sequins.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.



Thank you so much for watching!






 For my second card, I started by stamping the flowers and the leaves onto watercolor paper with black waterproof ink.


I wet my paper with clean water and messy watercolored the flowers using inks from my pallet. 


After that, I splattered my panel with the same inks and also splattered it with silver paint.
