Hey friends! Today I am thrilled to be participating in Altenew’s Fresh Start Blog Hop! You can see the entire Fresh Start Collection here!
I have a couple projects to share with you all today, but I will kick things off with this gem using the Airbrushed Flowers Stamps, dies and stencil.
I started off by inking up the background panel in a brown gradient, then adding some silhouettes of the flowers and leaves in the same brown in the background.
I then stamped out the flowers and leaves on some watercolor paper and painted them up using the Altenew Artist’s Watercolours and die cut those out layering them on the card front. Keeping the sentiment simple with a little Hello to to finish it off!
For my second card I white embossed the large floral in the Enchanted Roses stamps set on some kraft coloured cardstock.
I then kept it simple using Tea Party and Green Hills mixed with a little Green Meadows to paint them out. Kraft paper does not take watercolour as well as watercolour paper, but I kept the water to a minimum and it worked out so well! Stamping “Live” with the Limestone ink and outlining it with some white really set it off, and a small flag pannel finished off the rest of the sentiment!

Your first card is absolutely gorgeous. The background is just perfect for those beautifully watercolored flowers.
Your watercolored Airbrushed Flowers are ethereal! Just gorgeous.

Love the look of the card with the Kraft paper, it’s so pretty.

Both of these are beautiful, but you are definitely right in the first one being a gem. I rarely think to use much brown, but you really made it work.
Love your background techniques….sometimes it’s the backgrounds that draw your eyes in! Beautiful!
Watercoloring is a beautiful medium. Your cards are lovely. Especially the Enchanted Roses.
I particularly like the silhouettes in the background and the muted colors of your Airbrushed Flowers.
WOW, the first card with the gorgeous flowers is just incredible. I would love to be able to color like that.
Your airbrushed flowers are beautiful! They look so vintage to me! Thank you for sharing, both are super nice.
Wow! Amazing cards. Love the way you created the background for the first one and the watercoloring on kraft for the second one. Thanks for sharing!
That brown ombre with those muted flowers is one of the most beautiful color arrangements that I have seen in a long time. This project is breath-taking.
OMG! The coloring is incredible!
I am blown away with the water coloring and stamping of your first card! So amazing and beautiful. I just love those soft, antique like colors.

Oh my! The soft colors on that slimline card are just beautiful. Great cards and a great release.

The softly colored “airbrushed roses” stamp on the brown monochromatic background looked like they were made for each other.
