August 2018 Inspiration Challenge + Video

by Erum Tasneem

Hello, friends!

Erum here today with a very vibrant, bold color for the August 2018 Inspiration Challenge.

Inspiration Challenge 2018 08 04As you can see, I have used a project that I made previously as inspiration for this month's challenge. Here is a look at the card:

Altenew Crown Bloom Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0Below is the new card that I made for this challenge.

Altenew Magnolias for Her | Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm | | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I have followed the same watercoloring technique on the new card as I did on the previous one. I did this because I didn't make a video earlier and I thought it would be helpful for you if I had a visual explanation as well.

Altenew Magnolias for Her | Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm | | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0My new card features the Magnolias for Her Stamp Set, Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Stamp Set, and Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set.

I used Antique Gold Heat Embossing Powder to heat emboss my images. After this, I applied water to one petal at a time, added a bit of violet-blue color. While the petal was still wet, I spread this color around a bit and then I added another shade of blue. The two-toned petals look really interesting. The Magnolias For Her Stamp Set has gorgeous, wide enough petals to show off the two tones of colors.

I colored the remaining elements using the same wet-on-wet watercoloring technique. After all the images were dry, I die cut these out with the coordinating dies using the Mini-Blossom Die Cutting Machine.

I kept drying the layers and adding more layers of watercolor and splatters as the previous layer dried. I continued to do this until I was happy with the look.

After the panel was dry, I added some black paint splatters and started arranging my bouquet. I popped the flowers on different levels but glued the flower bunches and leaves directly onto the card.

This is gorgeous Erum. I don’t do the challenges but today I stamped and embossed a few sheets of Altenew’s floral’s in both their rose gold EP and the Golden peach. I can’t wait to practice my water colouring on them. I am learning a lot from you. Thanks for kindly sharing your talent and what you have learned.
