Altenew October 2019 Metallic Watercolor Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

There’s such a wonderful release today! Altenew is releasing a Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set! Be sure to check out the new Watercoloring Collection! and the Altenew Card Blog where the blog hop starts and is hosted! Such beautiful colors and I had to swatch them first on black cardstock for the pan.

Metallic watercolors are best shown over black cardstock, but can also be used over white or other colored cardstock – it just depends on the color and pigments. As a happy medium, I’m watercoloring over a gray cardstock today. I say watercolor but you have to be really careful when you’re not using a true watercolor cardstock so that the paper doesn’t peel up.

I stamped and embossed the Leaf Canopy image at the top and bottom of my gray cardstock using white embossing powder. Then I used Sterling Silver paint to lay down a light layer, then quickly added some Jade at the base of the leaves.

I varied the gradient in each of the leaves so there is some contrast across the panel. Then I splattered some Sterling Silver paint over the entire panel. I decided I wanted to give the panel more layers using vellum that I also embossed with white. I adhered the vellum to the watercolored panel at the center where I planned to place my sentiment.

I embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and matted it with some white cardstock. Before adhering the sentiment, I added foam adhesive to the back, then looped silver thread onto the foam adhesive and then pleaced it over the vellum at the center of my card. To finish, I also matted my finished panel over black cardstock and then further matted it over a white cardbase.
