Creative Watercolor Media

I just love the look of watercolor so you can imagine that I was quite excited to get into this unit of work. The first stamp that I purchased from Altenew was their Garden Hydrangea set because they are one of my favourite types of flowers. It is the perfect pairing for this activity, as far as I am concerned. Who does not love those gorgeously dreamy flowers!

In this unit of work you learn a variety of way that you can achieve different watercolor looks using a range of materials and techniques. I choose to use my Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to create my hydrangeas. Scroll through the photos to see how I made my card.

I ended up painting two hydrangeas for my card so that I would be able to have some dimenson. Once the pictures were dry they were then die cut using the coordinating die and set aside so I could work on the background.
