Welcome to ALTENEW'S PAINT-A-FLOWER: SUNFLOWER & WOODLESS PENCILS RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Laura Jane's blog. You can find the list of all the participants at the bottom of this post.
Today, Altenew is introducing a new flower to their popular PAINT-A-FLOWER collection. The new PAF: SUNFLOWER is beautiful, detailed, and perfect for all types of documenting. In addition, Altenew is also releasing a set of WOODLESS WATERCOLOR PENCILS ( and these are amazing!)
For my first project. I chose to create a card, using the WOODLESS Watercolor pencils to create a watery look for the Sunflower stamping.
I literally color the stamp set with the watercolor pencils, spray water on the scribbled lines and stamp the image. All the left over watercolor in the stamp creates soft puddles on the image giving it a more organic watercolor look. To finish I stamped the PAF: SUNFLOWERS with Obsidian ink on top of the watercolor ones. A simple sentiment completes the card.
For my layout, I chose to create a watercolor wash at the corners of the layout using the Watercolor pencils. I mixed a few shades of yellow with a bit of green to resemble the color of the balcony.
