Altenew 24 Half Pan Set

I recently got my hands on the new watercolor palette from Altenew! So I had a play with it and then decided to film a little comparison of it with the other 36 half pan set.

Let’s Stick Together

Hey all! Today I am back with some more watercolouring! It has kinda become my obsession lately!

I stamped them out with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then used my Mexico palette to paint this one up, I am so happy with how soft the colours came out, and how stamping in light ink and not adding the character faces back in creates suck a different look from this stamp set.

I always start with a light wash of colour, just to get rid of the white of the paper, and ease the intimidation of painting it! I love working in light layers of colours over dry paper.

I then slowly worked my way across the cacti, addint layers of greens and yellows and building up the depth till I got to the finished card!

I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the card front and add it to the inside, when I decide who I am giving it to and what sentiment I need.

The Greeting Farm – March Preview Day 2

Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm.

Today we are sharing a new set called Bouquet, and I played with the “Mexico Palette” again when painting these pretty florals up!

I stamped it out with Tea Dye Distress ink then started painting it up, I love working in layers and creating depth on the card, adding a little gray dropped shadow to some of the florals and the sentiment really finished this one off!

Floral Mix Background

Hey all, I have been having a blast with my watercolours and gouache and things lately. Don’t worry the Gnome video is almost done, you will get to see that soon.

But today I pulled out a background set from Simon Says Stamp and did some no lines watercolouring with it. It seems to be my thing again lately!

This one probably took me about 3 hours to paint. It was a wonderful time, I love just mindlessly painting, it is always a good time!
