Hello and welcome to Day 15 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. It’s hard to believe we are half way through the challenge already. I hope that you have been enjoying finding a few minutes to color each day. If you’re new to the coloring challenge or have any questions about the coloring challenge you can refer to this post.
Today I’m sharing 2 cards and a video (How to Fake Watercoloring) as part of a blog hop celebrating the November release from Altenew. Are you a fan of Altenew? I am a huge fan of their stamp sets and of May, the marketing director 🙂
A collector is something that has always been a trait of mine. One of my many collections are bone china tea cups. When I saw this stamp set called, “Vintage Tea Cup” I almost cried lol. The coordinating die cuts will be one of the first things in my shopping cart.
The leaves in my background are from the new “Hello Sunshine” whimsical florals that I adore. This card was colored with Tombow markers on regular cardstock. (you have to be super careful so your paper doesn’t pill). A little dot action on the leaves on my “wallpaper”.
The tablecloth that the doily is glued to … I stamped the steam from the Vintage Tea Cup to resemble a contemporary pattern. I fussy cut the tea cup and colored the tea set a bright orange on my card panel.
L.O.V.E. this stamp set called, “Adore You” … watch the video to see how to Fake Watercoloring … I am only sharing this video because you guys like to see the process or my journey lol. If you only knew how many times I almost gave up . The background plaid was painted with distress ink and a flat brush …. yes wonky likes are ok 🙂
In my opinion this stencil is what my flowers go from drab to fab lol.
What I love most about these florals is the variety of sizes and shapes …perfect for a bouquet. Lucy’s Little Things sequin mixes are the perfect little final touch. I use matte medium to keep my sequins on my cards.
Tim Holtz’s doily stencil saved my flowers and gave them the pizzaz and color variation I was craving. I am so excited that the stencil is back in stock .
