Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello Friends! I'm very excited to be part of the Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop with Altenew and the ridiculously talented and kind Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker. Kathy is celebrating her 18th Coloring Challenge which goes until 11/22/2020. You are encouraged to participate in this daily challenge by coloring something and sharing it on your social media using the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. This challenge is a good excuse to find some YOU time and lose yourself in the beautiful world of watercolors. Here's more information on the challenge if you're interested.

You may have come from the blog of Dana Joy, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog

I hadn't been able to ink up the recent Kind Reminders Stamp Set yet, so I was really looking forward to trying these out! The blooms on these flowers are very open, leaving lots of room for you to play with color. Perfect for watercoloring! 

The blooms are also large, so you can quickly fill a tall slimline card like this one.

Instead of masking the flowers I just fussy cut the middle flower close to the lines and adhered it on top of the other two flowers. The bold sentiment is from the same Kind Remembrance stamp set that the flowers are from. 

I'm such a lover of gold on everything! Gold embossed sentiment, gold thread around the sentiment, gold spatters, and those wonderful satin gold sequins

Also of note is the card itself - I trimmed the front to be a little shorter, and then adhered some patterned paper on the inside of the card so it would show through. I think it adds a little zippy fun to the frilly florals!

I really enjoyed taking some time to play with watercolors on this card. Practice, practice, practice is what I tell myself.

Prizes:

Altenew and Kathy from The Daily Maker are giving away over $350 prizes to 17 lucky winners.

  17. Very pretty! Your painting of the flowers is lovely. And I really like the stripes on the side of the card and the gray tag/sentiment. Great contrast. Now about that gray tag- it is so unique- I am going to borrow that for some masculine cards- I really like the layered tag!
