Altenew Storybook Fantasy Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Storybook Fantasy Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Therese Calvird’s blog you are on the right track!

I started by stamping the Fairy Tale Florals on the top-right corner of an A2 sized watercolour panel using Faded Jeans Distress ink. I then freely coloured the stamped image using water brush – I made blue no-line watercoloured flowers mixed with green. Distress inks react to water so, this technique is so fun!

For the sentiment on the bottom left, I stamped it from the Adore You set with Jet Black dye ink.

Take a closer look:

For my second card, I used the Floating Foliage 3D embossing folder along with the Fairy Tale Florals set. I placed an A2 sized watercolour panel inside the Floating Foliage 3D embossing folder and ran it through the die cutting machine first, and then smoothly ink blended onto the panel with pastel-toned Distress inks – I love this pattern!! I heat embossed the Fairy Tale Florals on vellum paper in white, then die cut it with the matching die. I mounted the background panel on white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the vellum flower die cut & sentiment on the card.

For my foliage background panel, I applied some soft-coloured Distress inks using mini round blending tool first, and then added darker colours onto each leaf using brand new Detailed Blending Brushes. I love these detailed brushes like recently released watercolour brushes!!
