#718 – Watercoloring by Dabbing

Hello! I thought of making another submission to the Altenew Inspiration challenge. Love the bright colors in the challenge! So, I thought I would even CASE the card that Erum Tasneem has made in the challenge, but.. I just stamped too many flowers in my card. I do love the effect, but it doesn’t look like I’ve CASEd her card anymore! Nevertheless, here it is –

Watercoloring by Dabbing

I stamped images from Altenew Peony Bouquet and Beautiful Day and watercolored it using distress inks. I tried something new to me this time – instead of brushing the colors, I dabbed them with the brush instead. I applied 2-3 layers of colors to each image, and brushed the color only for the lightest color on every image.

I had stamped the large flowers and the small single one on another watercolors panel, which I fussy cut out and adhered to the main watercolored panel. To assemble, I foam mounted the whole panel on a gray card base along with the sentiment, which is from Altenew Adore You stamp set.

I am joining the following challenges –
