Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

by Therese Calvird

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.

Continue reading below for all the details of today's blog hop. Thanks so much for stopping by today.

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?
