Take 2 with Therese: Watercolor 2 Ways + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese. Welcome to Altenew's new weekly feature – Take 2 with Therese. In this feature, you can see not just one but two cards in my videos. Each video will focus on a particular theme, technique, color combo or product and I would love for you to share your ideas with me in the comments below.

In today's Take 2 with Therese, I decided to use the Always There Stamp Set and use a watercolor 2 ways technique.

I have the watercolor pan set and I love using it. I love both cards, but I like the one with the markers better. I think it’s because I like the background paper better because it’s not quite as “busy”! The flowers are very similar in their coloring and all look great to me.

I am enjoying the watercolor pan set and find that it’s so nice to have colours that are the same as the inks that I adore from Altenew! Thanks so much for your lovely comments, Therese
