Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

by Therese Calvird

Altenew Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop Graphic

Hi, it's Therese, and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese. Today's post is special, as we are joining Kathy Racoosin for the Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop.

I am using the new Woodless Watercolor Pencils from Altenew and you will be able to see just how easy they are to use!

I chose the beautiful Kind Reminders Stamp Set as these flowers have that ‘watercolor' look. My first card is very clean and simple.

I added some Jet Black Ink splatters and a sentiment from the Celebrate Us Stamp Set.

To create my second card, I used the Simple Coloring Stencil, but you can watch the process in the video linked below.

This time, I used the Waterbrush Hello Die and a sub sentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.

Really pretty cards. I love the second one using the stencil and pencils together. So much detail!

Kimberly Tomaszewski November 18, 2020 - 10:14 AM

I am so excited – I just ordered the woodless colored pencils. They have been out of stock and I watch Amber’s videos and was lucky when I checked back. I love water coloring although I still need a lot of practice, and I get so many awesome tips from Altenew and Kathy Racoosin.

Gorgeous cards, those water color pencils really look easy to use, so they are going to the top of my list! Thank you for another awesome video tutorial.

Beautifully color flowers. Gorgeous cards!!

Teri S. November 18, 2020 - 10:30 AM

Oh Therese, I think both of your cards are so lovely. I’m a huge fan of watercolour, yet this time I think the second card using the ink & pencils is my favourite as I like the depth of colour. I love it when people’s dogs or cats wander into the picture when filming. It puts a large grin on my face. Thanks.

Lagene November 18, 2020 - 10:32 AM

Gorgeous cards, It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I will say the looser watercolor look makes me happiest!

Maureen Turner November 18, 2020 - 10:33 AM

Beautiful cards Therese! Those water color pencils really do look easy to use. Thanks for sharing

Barbara Webb November 18, 2020 - 11:05 AM

Love Teresa’s style and colors. Have to admit her cards always tempt me to purchase the stamps/products she uses. I do my best to mimic her!!!

Gillie Ciriaco-Runge November 18, 2020 - 11:06 AM

Wow! What a beautiful cards. I have been wanting to do watercolor pencils coloring but don’t have the nerve to do it! Christmas is coming and these watercolor woodless will be a perfect gift to myself. This blog is the best I have seen and I’ll definitely save it.

Gayle Burdick November 18, 2020 - 11:21 AM

Those woodless watercolor pencils are beautiful. Love the effect on cards!

Kathleen Landphair November 18, 2020 - 11:42 AM

Well done – I like the card where you used the stencil mask best! Thanks for demoing this technique!

Marilynn d-r November 18, 2020 - 11:47 AM

Beautiful cards, lovely colors with the watercolors used.

Chandhini November 18, 2020 - 11:49 AM

Love Take two with Therese. These cards are wonderful.

The videos are so helpful and relaxing for me to watch too :)

Vickie D November 18, 2020 - 12:01 PM

Coloring is so therapeutic and your cards are beautiful!

Kelly W. November 18, 2020 - 12:15 PM

Therese, both of your cards are gorgeous, so soft and pretty! I really enjoyed your video and tips. I’d like to try the tip to tip technique as well as how you use your water brush! I think that would help with control of the color and amount of water applied.

Linda BL November 18, 2020 - 12:16 PM

Really enjoyed your video! Watching you use these new pencils is making me think that these need to be in my craft room. Both cards are really pretty, still trying to decide which is my favorite. As has been mentioned already, I do love when a cat wanders into the picture.

dorothyayotte November 18, 2020 - 12:16 PM

So looking forward to this wonderful blog hop. I am a novice water color user so this will be so inspiring, I’m sure!

Anne Sturgeon November 18, 2020 - 12:20 PM

Beautiful creations… very generous of Altenew and K. Raccousin to do this lovely watercolor hop… Thanks for the tips and I think these pencils look quite easy to use.

Debbie Nutt November 18, 2020 - 12:38 PM

Such a soft look. Amazing stencil and watercolour pencils. I’ve been covering the watercolour pan sets for ages. Fingers crossed. Thanks, Altenew.

Anna Angus November 18, 2020 - 12:38 PM

I love the stamps and die set that produced. I just wish the cost for postage ro the southern hemisphere were not so much. Love all the cards that arw produced by the team.

barbara lassiter November 18, 2020 - 12:50 PM

I love both cards but maybe the “watercolor only” card a little bit better! That’s because I love the look of watercolor so much! Both cards are well designed and great inspiration for any cards I might want to create from my stash of Altenew flowers!

Patt H. November 18, 2020 - 12:59 PM

Absolutely gorgeous coloring, Therese! I love your informative videos & now have those pencils high on my christmas wish list!

Cathy S November 18, 2020 - 1:02 PM

Beautiful cards! Love the watercolor over stencil technique

Cindy C. November 18, 2020 - 1:14 PM

Both so charming!! Love the soft watercoloring!

Gorgeous cards! The watercolor pencils look amazing!

apalmer2019 November 18, 2020 - 1:21 PM

What a great line up of designers for this Blog Hop. So much talent using my favorite coloring sticks, (Pencils, LOL). I get so much help from the videos and have me scrambling to pull out my gear. Beautiful work here, The cards are fabulous as always Therese. I off to more hopping.

Theresa November 18, 2020 - 1:37 PM

It seems like I’ve been waiting for ever for these pencils to come back in stock. I ordered them yay!. Therese makes this beautiful project seem so easy.

Beautiful cards. The woodless water color pencils would be fun to play with!

Julie Greaves November 18, 2020 - 2:57 PM

Both of your cards are beautiful. I have a set of lesser quality watercolor pencils but have not used them much. WELL … after watching your video I got mine out and started practicing. They will have to do me for now til I can afford the Altenew woodless pencils which look lovely and are in the great Altenew shades. I think I have fallen in love with watercolor. Thanks for sharing and love the cat :)

Jacinda November 18, 2020 - 3:38 PM

Gorgeous cards!

kjwinston November 18, 2020 - 3:58 PM
