Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to an all new Release Blog Hop for Altenew! This month’s products are wonderful and I hope you’ll enjoy my project today using the Everlasting Happiness stamp set. The images are large and don’t fully fit on an A2-sized card – but they lend for creative layouts, and of course, larger cards.

I’ve decided to watercolor with Tombow Dual Brush Pens for today’s card using no-line coloring. I first stamped the images using a light ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock, then I applied some ink directly to the cardstock in the areas where I wanted the color more concentrated (in the nooks and crannies or outer edges of petals). Then using a lightly damp brush, I pulled the color out and blended moving towards the white/lighter areas of the petal I was working on. It takes a lot of time working through each one, but I love how it turns out and Tombow’s intensity in color.

Tombow:  755, 847 (Reds), 665 (Purple), 245, 346 (Greens), 025 (Yellow), N65 (Gray)

After I was done with the images, I outlined everything with a gray marker – then blended that out just a tad to give the images faux dimension. For some additional interest, I splattered the entire panel with watered-down black and white acrylic paint. The floral centers are dabbed with some gold Nuvo drops and the sentiment is embossed and matted over black cardstock to frame it.

  1. You certainly made the most of these flower arrangements! The way you brought out the littlest of flowers is particularly nice. And the faux shadow you created just takes everything to the next level. Thanks for sharing with us!

  2. Caly, your card is really gorgeous….your no line coloring is so awesome! I also love how you outlined everything with gray…so subtle but it really makes those flowers just pop off the card! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us!
