Watercoloured Blossoms with Altenew

 Hi - It's the final day of our challenge 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 have another floral card.  Altenew make the most amazing variety of Floral stamps as well as some amazing sentiments. 

A while back I had made some watercoloured backgrounds in a variety of pinks and greens using Altenew's 36 pan watercolour paints.  For today's card I took these panels.  From the pink one, I stamped and die cut two of the flowers from Altenew's Nature Blossoms set using inks from the Tea Party ink set.  I missed stamping the base layer to allow the painted background to show through.  I did the same with the leaves from the set using inks from the Tropical Forest set.  With the rest of the green watercolour paper I die cut some branches from the Branches and Berries die set.   To my background, cut with a Gina K Master Layout 2, I added some leaves from the Foliage Stencil in Parrot ink. I added some splatter with the Moss ink.   I stuck the ligher flower with tape to the card, and added the brighter one on foan tape. Added all the leaves and branches.  Stamped the sentiment from Fresh Freesia stamp set to finish off my card. 

I have enjoyed this month's challenge as Altenew is my favourite stamp company.  And I've been enjoying all types of watercolouring.  Our challenge finishes today so come and join us.
