Ready to Unleash Your Artistry? Here's Your First Inspiration!

Here are the supplies you'll need:

20230904 131413 1 I used an image from Exotic Blooms Watercolor Coloring Book for the image. I used the magnolia image with the gray outlines for the no-line effect. I then colored the image using the new watercolor tubes. Firstly, I colored in the flowers using a wet-on-wet technique using the Quinacridone Magenta.

Once these were dry, I added a tiny touch of Quinacridone Violet to the pink, really watered this down, and then used this to add the shading to the flowers. I mixed Phthalo Green, Dark Cyan, Quinacridone Magenta, and a little Opera Yellow for the leaves. The branch was then painted green from the leaves and a touch of Toluidine Red. 20230904 131420 1Before adding the finished image onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Parchment card base, I cut the piece down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and roughed the edges using a pallet knife. The sentiment was created using Essential Sentiment Hot Foil Plate (using Brass Foil), then die cut using the coordinating die. 20230904 131426 1 Want to see how this card came together?

I think I would need a lot of practice before trying to enhance my cards! Altenew makes such beautiful stamp sets that I wouldn’t know where to begin. But these colors look amazing and I can see where it would add more dimension!

The flower water painting is lovely. I’m new to watercolours. I’ve been wondering about the technique used by artists to create that delicate appearance of flowers with watercolours. Now I know the answer. Thanks!.
