Watercolor Starry Night with Altenew September 2018 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaways
Hello, friends! Today I am part of the Altenew September 2018 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop today. I am sharing a non-traditional way to use a holiday set by creating a watercolor starry night look.
Check out the new release here!
My card features Starry Night, which has varied star stamps and beautiful sentiments. It was so simple to make, I know you’ll want to try this, too. I used the triangle cluster of stars and stamped three times with embossing ink on watercolor paper. I used a stamp platform to make sure I get a good stamp. Then I heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I watercolored using the Altenew 36 Pan Watercolor Set. I used various shades of purple, blue, and black. Once it was completely dry, I added white paint splatters. Of course I finished it off with a white-embossed sentiment on black cardstock, trimmed down and mounted over the base. You can use the different star clusters to create all kinds of looks. I have always loved skies and galaxies and am happy to be practicing more of these now. What about you?
