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.
