Creating a Faux Gouache Painting Card with Altenew's Artists' Gouache Set

I started by preparing my background. I used a Watercolor Paper Pad (9″x 12″), Satin Masking Tape, Baby Pink paint from Artists' Gouache Set – Strolling Through New York, and Titanium White Artists' Gouache.

I mixed a little bit of pink and white gouache to lighten the color and painted the masked piece.

Once my background was dry, I used a stencil from Stencil Art: Playful Watercolor Flowers Layering Stencil Set to add two beautiful floral clusters.

I blended over the stencil Moss and Evergreen Crisp Dye Inks for the leaves, and Cloud White Pigment Ink for the flowers.

Then, I set it all aside to let the ink dry completely.

My last step was to paint over the top of the flowers with Titanium White Artists' Gouache.

I used a small brush and applied thick layers of paint for a lovely texture and to add some artistic feel.

Finally, I removed the masking tapes, placed the piece on a card base, and added a sentiment from the Elegant Sayings bundle.
