Watercolouring with Altenew at Die Cut Divas

 Hi there.  It's time for a new challenge at Die Cut Divas.... Our sponsor this month is none other than...

Our  theme for the month of August is "watercolor real or faux". There's lots of techniques you can go with for watercolor real or faux. We'll leave it up to you.

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

As anyone who visits here frequently knows I ADORE Altenew stamps, dies and stencils. And I enjoy watercolouring... So I had no problems making a card to inspire.

I used Our Friendship Blooms Stamp and Die set . I had a slimline cream card base cut (3.25" x 6.25") so decided to use it. I took some watercolour paper and stamped and die cut the flowers. I then took some of the paints from the Altenew 36 pan watercolor paints and added to my floral image. I chose different shades of blues and greens. For my background panel I took another piece of watercolour paper and added some water to the top and let it drip down. I then added some green paints. I added some black paint splatters before adding my floral piece. I white embossed one of the sentiments from the set and fussy cut it.

Do come and join us for our challenge.  It's going to be so much fun.  So many ways to incorporate Watercolouring, real or faux.
