Bright Watercolor Florals with Altenew Watercolor Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, friends! I’m part of the Altenew Watercolor Markers Release Blog Hop today! I created a bright watercolor florals card for you using Blooming Bouquet and new watercolor markers, and I’m loving how vibrant they are. See below for details.

You should have arrived from the lovely Yoonsun Hur and the next person on the hop is the fabulous Laura Bassen. If you lose your place or need more details, you can start at the Altenew Blog.

I started by stamping images from Blooming Bouquet with clear embossing ink on watercolor paper and heat-setting with platinum embossing powder. I used the watercolor markers and a regular brush with clean water to dilute the colors. I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies and set aside while I worked on the base. I had a 4.25″ x 7.5″ card base and a separate 4″ x 7.25″ sheet. I used the yellow watercolor marker to create vibrant lines across the sheet. Once that dried, I adhered it to the base and mounted the floral images over it. I stamped the sentiment under the flowers.

    The embossed borders are a good way of framing your coloring.
