Hello and welcome!
I made another card to enter into the current July Inspiration Challenge at Altenew Blog.
Click the inspiration photo below .
In today's card I used two somewhat new coloring methods to me which are watercolor stenciling using altenew metalic spray and watercoloring using altenew pigment dye inks.
So here's my card.
First, I prepared watetcolor paper into A2 size, then put Sketched Lines stencil onto it and then brushed using metalic shimmer ink sprays- Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades.
I thought brushing ink sprays instead of just spraying is a good way to minimalize bleeding and make clear stencil.
Second, I stamped Garden Treasure floral images with versafine black ink , then watercolored them using Altenew pigment dye inks. I mainly used Ruby Red and Velvet. To color leaves, I used metalic ink sprays that were left on my watercolor palette from previous stenciling.
Then I fussy cut all the images.
Third, I stamped sentiment from "Smile More" set and then rounded natural string around the lower part of the panel, then foam mounted the panel onto a brown card base.
Then I put floral images onto the panel using foam tapes and glue.
Finally I applied clear wink of stella to the flowers (because green stenciled background and leaves had shimmer due to metalic shimmer sprays, I wanted the same shimmering effect in the red flowers), then I put some sparkling clear sequins.
That's it for today.
Using somewhat different coloring medium was so fun and exciting. I also love the results.
Thanks for reading this post.
Hope you enjoyed it.
