Hi there! Welcome to the Altenew Folktales and Stories release blog hop! You should have arrived here from Hussena Calcuttawala, and your next stop is Colleen Balija. You can also check out the full hop list at the Altenew Blog. As always, there are some stunning new flowers in this release, including the Endless Florescence set that I’ve used to do some no-line watercoloring. Let’s get started with the details of my project!
I began by stamping the beautiful floral image from Endless Florescence onto some watercolor paper using no-line ink, then used the Artist’s 24 Pan Watercolor set to add some soft watercoloring to the images. I usually go bright and bold, but this time I wanted to embrace a more muted color palette. I die cut the finished watercolored piece with the coordinating die.
Next, I began work on the card base. I blended some Emerald ink on a coordinating green card base, then splattered some metallic gold watercolor on the blended area. I added a matte gold frame around the edge cut using the Fine Frames Rectangles dies and some matte gold foil cardstock.
I adhered the watercolored bouquet using some Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I also heat embossed a greeting from Endless Florescence on a rectangle of vellum cardstock using gold embossing powder. I adhered it to the card front, tucking one corner behind the die cut and using tiny dots of liquid adhesive. Finally, I added a few metallic gold gems for some sparkle!
