Modern & Edgy Release Video Hop – Win Prizes & Get Inspired!

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. I'm so excited to be the start of the video hop. Today, we are continuing our celebrations for our Modern & Edgy Release with our Modern & Edgy Video Hop over on our YouTube channel.

This modern and edgy release gives an Altenew twist to what's trending in the design world! Florals with the look of pen and ink, minimalist line art, doodled geometry, and typography art are just some of the themes covered. We have also included a collection of stencils, dies, and embossing folders to add a bit of pop to your projects. The finishing touches are the versatile enamel dots and a paper pack with the look of poured paint!

Check our new Stamps, Dies, Stencils, Embossing Folders, Patterned Papers, and Enamel Dots HERE!


Today, I'll be showing how you can create a beautiful textured card with watercolor.

I started by embossing a 4 1/4″ x 5″ x 1/2″ panel of watercolor cardstock using Rose Bouquet 3D Embossing Folder. I then colored it using Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. Once this was dry, the embossed image had dropped a little. So, I placed it back into position in the embossing folder and re-embossed it.

For a little interest, I added a debossed border using a score board and a bone folder. A little splatter was added using Pure White and Iridescent Ink Sprays. The sentiment is from Fresh Bloom Stamp Set.

To see how this card came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beautiful card, Lydia! Love your watercoloring, and thanks for the reminder to re-emboss after doing so. That sentiment is very sweet and matches the soft floral design.
