Altenew Watercolor Blog Hop | Giveaway

Welcome to a fun blog hop! Altenew has just released a watercolor pan set and today we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from the talented Therese Calvird. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Altenew Card Blog.

This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with the Altenew line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, with a palette in the lid for mixing and a water brush.

Here is a photo of a quick swatch I did, where you can see all the colors included.

I love that you can take the pans out of the case if you wish so and they also have the name of the color typed at the bottom. And what is really awesome is that the colors actually match the Altenew ink pads!

Here is the card I made using the watercolor pan set.

For my card I used the gorgeous Altenew  flower set Cherished Memories ( ALTN | SSS | SBC ), that has lovely sentiments. A really easy card since all I did was to stamp the images, quickly colors them with the new watercolors and then cut them out. You can create your own flower arrangement and you have a lovely card ready and perfect for any occasion. Depending on the sentiment you stamp, it can be a birthday card, a thank you card… anything goes!

    Thanks for showing something that I feel like I can do with watercolors. I love hearing you talk too. I also liked the idea of removing some color for depth/contrast.
