Hi there! Altenew is releasing their new Today is the Day collection, and we’re hopping along to share all of the fabulous new products with you! You should have arrived here from Jennifer McGuire, and your next stop is Vicky Papaioannou. You can start back at the beginning at the Altenew Blog in case you get lost! I have a dainty, feminine watercolored project to share with you today, so let’s get started with the details!
I began by stamping the beautiful new Sentimental Florals stamp using some no-line coloring ink on Altenew Watercolor Paper. I used the Artists 24 Pan Watercolor set to add some delicate purple, pink, and green watercolor to the image, mixing and matching colors to create completely custom colors. I am really enjoying mixing my own colors with the Altenew palette-so many possibilities with 24 colors!
Once the image had dried, I die cut it with the coordinating die from the Sentimental Florals die set. I also die cut a subtle, delicate background using the Dotted Tiles Debossing die from some creamy white cardstock. This creamy white is a bit softer than my usual crisp and bright white cardstock, and it coordinates better with the creamy white watercolor paper. The subtle debossed texture is the perfect background for the dainty watercolored flowers!
I popped up the watercolored floral frame using some Instant Dimension Foam Tape, then added a greeting from the Sentimental Florals set, which I heat embossed using gold embossing powder and matted on a slightly larger strip of metallic gold cardstock. The final touch was to add a few coordinating matte gold pearls for extra texture and shine!
Well, that’s all for my project today. Now for some fun giveaway information!
