Thank You to Altenew

Spending time with Altenew is always a pleasure and our DTs want to thank Altenew for their wonderful sponsorship of Die Cut Divas.

You only have until 9:00 p.m. Pacific time to enter the Die Cut Divas challenge.

Die Cut Divas theme for the month of August is "watercolor real or faux".

"Watercolor real or faux" includes splattering of water on distress inked panels, application of a water spritzed stencil to pull up distress inks from a distress inked panel and smooshed backgrounds, so there's lots of techniques you can go with for watercolor real or faux.

Arlene water colored a tag (Book Club) and then used it on her card. You can check out her blog at A Bit of This and That.                                          
                                 This is a Tag                            Card made with the Tag

Linda used the same bookplate image (thanks Arlene!) and watercolored it for a card.
See more details on her blog (Scrappin', Stampin', & Singin').


Dawn has used Nature Blossoms for her card  (details on her blog


Sue N used Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp set and a faux watercolor technique to create her card. For more details, check out her blog.

More watercolouring with Altenew

 Hi there.  It's my day to share at Die Cut Divas...


 

Our theme for the month of August is "watercolor real or faux".

The Prize will be a $20 gift certificate to Altenew.


Today I am using the cutest little stamp set called "Rosie Posy" My delightful team mate Cindy kindly gave me this little set. I gold embossed it onto some watercolour paper and then used Altenew's Woodless Watercoloured pencils. I did a little watercolouring wash around it. I then went overboard a bit with splatters. I used Gina K Master Layouts to cut my layers

Do come and join us.

Dawn and the Divas.

Faux Watercolouring with Altenew inks

 Hi there.  Dawn here again.  

Our theme for the month of August is "watercolor real or faux".

The Prize will be a $20 gift certificate to Altenew.

Today I'm sharing a Faux watercoloured card.   A great easy way to do watercolouring.


To make my watercoloured flowers I used the layers of Nature Blossoms flower. I inked up with the first colour and spritzed with water before stamping onto some watercolour paper . I dried with my heat gun and did the next layer in the same manner. And finally the last layer. I used the Red Sunset inks from Altenew - one using the first three inks and two using the 2nd - 4th inks. The centres are stamped using inks from the Warm and Cozy set. I die cut with the matching dies and then blended a little of the ink on the edges. For the leaves I used inks from the Green Meadow inks and did some smooshing onto wet watercolour paper. After it dried, I overstamped some leaves. I die cut the leaves and with some of the extra watercolour paper, I die cut some branches from the Branches and Berries Die set. My other faux watercolour technique used the Classy Stripe stencil - I inked it with the Crimson ink, spritzed with water and used it to "stamp" onto my card base. Loved how it looks. the sentiment is from the Engraved Flowers set.

Do come and join us for this month's challenge.

Altenew's Sketchy Flower Watercolored Card

Hi Friends! It's Sue and I have a card for you. Just a quick review. This month, our sponsor is Altenew. They generously will be giving our winner a $20 gift certificate to their store.


Our challenge this month is

WATERCOLOR - REAL OR FAUX

Here's my card


For my card, I used Altenew's Sketchy Floral stamp set and Sweetest Peas stamp set. I was hoping for a "messy" look achieved with lots of water where the color isn't confined to areas but can go "outside the lines". For more detail on how I made my card, please check out my foleysfriend blog

We'd love to see you watercolor (real or faux) creations. Don't forget to use a die cut! We are Die Cut Divas, after all! LOL!
