Altenew Challenge!!!

EEEEEKKKKK!!!!! I was so excited to find out that Altenew was having their own challenge as I am a HUGE fan of their stamps ( they are just so beautiful, intricate and a joy to work with! )!!!!  So of course I am playing along... I've been watching lots of videos lately (shout out to Jennifer McGuire and Jill Foster!) on water coloring with markers, and I'm having a blast figuring it all out.  So here is what I've created...



And this was based off of this:


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Altenew ( Persian Motifs, Sentiments & Quotes)
Versamark: Watermark Ink Pad
Embossing Powder: Fine Detail White
Distress Markers
Brush
Water
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh Clear
Vellum
Tim Holtz Water Color Paper

I started by stamping my images onto water color paper and heat embossed in white.  I then used my distress markers, brush and water to "paint" with.  I then "painted" on another strip of water color paper, dried and adhered to vellum.  I added this to my cardbase with clear foam adhesive, and finished with some clear sequins.

I am also entering this into the NBUS (never before used stuff) challenge, because I have never used this sentiment before... and I LOVE it!

And into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Make Your Own Background

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
Happy Crafting!
Lisa

What a great student of watercoloring you are, Lisa! I was quite mesmerized by this beautiful work of art you created and I kept reading your words, then scrolling up to look closely, scrolling down to read more, scrolling back up ... I got it! This is something I'm dying to try myself so this is a great inspiration post for me. Thank you!! And thank you so much for playing in my second NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

This is really beautiful! Great coloring! And I really like that sentiment. I was reading your Bio...in regards to hubby really supporting your hobby...that's neat. Mine actually started making cards with it. I guess he felt like it you can't fight it...might as well join too. smile...
