Altenew is hosting a Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop with Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker today to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring! Be sure to check out the Altenew Blog for details! The current 30 Coloring Challenge is running through 5/7/20 – if you’re playing along and coloring, be sure to use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day so others can see your work!
For my project today, I watercolored the Flower Garden set. I stamped out all the images I wanted to paint with Antique Linen Distress Ink to do no-line watercoloring with the Altenew Artists’ Watercolors.
When I was done, I die-cut all the images and decided I would create and arrangement to frame rather than making a card.
Paint colors used: cherry Bloosom, Red Sunset, Shades of Purple, Green Meadows, Tropical Forest, Green Hills.
I attached my images to an 8″x8″ piece of cardstock to hang inside a shadowbox and used foam adhesive to give it all more dimension. I really love the way it turned out and I hope you like it!
Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners and Kathy from The Daily Maker is also giving away a goodie bag(worth $30) to 4 lucky winners. Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by 5/6/2020 for a chance to win.
We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on 5/9/2020.
