Lydia’s Crafty Corner: No-line Watercoloring with Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone and happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a card using the newly released Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I'm so happy that these are now available and the colors are just gorgeous!

DSC00960mTo start, I stamped the large flower outline and leaves from Beautiful Heart Stamp Set using Sand Dunes Ink. I didn't stamp these directly onto my piece of watercolor cardstock, instead, I stamped it off first onto a piece of scrap paper and used the second generation ink. This gave me a super faint outline that is not at all noticeable on the final card.

DSC00962I then set to work with the watercolors! I worked petal by petal, not painting petals that touched each other until they were dry to stop bleeding. For the flower, I used Purple Wine, Sunkissed, and Warm Sunshine and for the leaves, I used Evergreen and Forest Glades.

I wanted to keep the attention on the flower so I kept the rest of the card super simple and just added a sentiment from In My Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you again real soon!

I love all this emphasis on watercolor and your card is beautiful. I’m just waiting for my watercolors to arrive. Perhaps you can answer this for me! Will there be half-pans of the colors for purchase later on if we use up a favorite color. Just wondering!???? :)

A very beautiful card Lydia. My eyesight being not what it used to be, due to birthdays, I think I might need a little darker ink for stamping. Love your colors on the flowers. Thanks for sharing with us.
