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.
To see how I created these cards, you can watch my video here or watch it in HD on YouTube.

I am so excited for this series, I have just discovered watercolors!
Magical! Beautiful creations! Wonderful tips! I love the blending magic that happens when you add the water! I didn’t know about the tip to tip colouring option. I thought the water would just be sucked up by the pencil and then I’d have a paint puddle- is that a rumour in my head?
Absolutely beautiful, Therese!
Both versions are beautiful. Thanks for demonstrating the tip to tip technique!
These are so lovely. I wouldnt have dared use black splatters but they look awesome.
Lovely cards Therese! I love this collab with Kathy – she is awesome.
Oh wow! Your cards are stunning, and those pencils are simply fabulous!
Although I have a different set of watercolor pencils, I do love the control, speed and flexibility of pencils.
Love both methods but by adding the stencil method made the flowers pop out more. Definitely want to try those new woodless color pencils. Looks easy to use and blend.
I love the black sentiment on the cards. It really pops against the beautiful flowers.
Beautiful cards!! Will definitely have to try watercolorig!!
These cards are beautiful
Ok love both cards.. you are so sweet and so talented, I so enjoy all of your videos you explain everything so well!
Stunning cards! I honestly really love to see an artist add that touch of drop shadowing – regardless of technique used! Thank you so much for sharing yours and your talent!
I really like the cards that were shown in this blog. The Kind Reminders stamp set is lovely and the Woodless Watercolor Pencils are ingenious with beautiful colors. Thank you for the ideas!
Gorgeous cards and amazing giveaway! :)
I like the stencil best as it is more saturated. Very lovely cards!
I’m new to watercolor. Inspired to learn more!!
The pencils are wonderful and your cards are gorgeous.
Those are both so pretty! I especially like the one with the two flowers. There’s a little more black on that one and it really makes it pop. And thanks to altenew for such a great giveaway!
Love the second card Therese did. Those new woodless pencils look amazing!
Where can I find the rose stamp at the top of this page?

I love the pencils and would love to try them. The result is beautiful. Thank you for the demonstration.
I am new to stamping and Altenew was the company which introduced me to stamping and die cutting and now water colouring which I am loving and am looking forward to expanding my art skills to water colouring. Just loving these blog hops and looking forward to learning more.
I’m just starting to watercolor the past few months so trying to learn along the way. These cards are beautiful ♡ Thank you for sharing your video and sharing the tip to tip technique.
Both cards are beautiful. Thanks for the video with instructions. These help alot. I’ve done a little water coloring. I need to do more to feel more confident doing water coloring.
I’m retiring and stocking up in my card needs.

Oh my gracious me that was a wonderful hop! The design team is so talented, especially with the new release of these woodless pencils. The colors are gorgeous and they seem to be so easy to achieve gorgeous results. I am dabbling with water color and this makes me want to certainly pursue this beautiful coloring.
