Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Iris & Watercolor Essential Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

Altenew is releasing some fabulous products today, including an all new Watercolor Essential Set of 12 vibrant and smooth colors, watercolor paper and the Paint-A-Flower: Iris set. Be sure to check out the Altenew Blog for all the information! The entire Watercolor Essential collection and Paint-A-Flower: Iris set can be found HERE.

I meant to use the new watercolor cardstock and completely forgot! It’s a more smooth cardstock and is whiter – which I love – and comes in 2 different size (a full 9″ x 12″ pad and A2 loose sheets)! I’ll be sure to remember to use it the next time! I used the new watercolor set to paint the Paint-A-Flower: Iris set after stamping it with a light gray ink. I used 4 colors to blend and add interest with color gradients on the petals and leaves using Deep Iris, Persian Blue, Forest Glades, Emerald, and Warm Sunshine.

After watercoloring my iris, I added some water all around and added color from the leftover paint I had in my palette – dabbing different colors all over to create an organic background. It’s definitely different for me, as I usually paint in a very controlled manner and don’t mix paints.

To add interest, after embossing and attaching my sentiment, I added some shimmer over the flowers and embellished my card with some clear confetti sequins.

  2. Love the technique you used for coloring this! The card is gorgeous and I intend to use your color palette on a flower today, even though it won’t be the Iris (which is probably my next Altenew stamp set Lol!) I have these colors in the 36 pan set and I love using this set for card making because of the vibrancy of the colors. I believe the colors in the 12 pan set are the same and match Altenew’s color family! 🙂
