Hi there everyone!
I’ve been getting to know my new Altenew Watercolour paints and thought it would be fun to practice and enter a watercolour challenge at the same time. The theme of this month’s CAS Watercolour challenge is ‘sunflower’ – perfect opportunity for me to ink up my wonderful Penny Black sunflower wreath stamp and practice on that.
I really love the consistency of the Altenew paints. The colours are quite vibrant (especially the lighter ones) – which is different for me as I generally favour more muted colours, but it’s fun using something different, right?! I admit, I had to walk away and come back to this a few times!
Once I had finished colouring, I splattered some gold paint on top of the image and mounted it to my base card before adhering a frame with foam tape. I added a Hero Arts sentiment to finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
