Altenew Ultimate Watercolor Lovers Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Altenew  Ultimate Watercolor Lovers Blog Hop!
You should have arrived from the amazing Yoonsun Hur's Blog

It's been freezing here lately so today I'm happy to be sharing some pretty watercolor flowers. I cannot wait for Spring! 

Don't forget to leave some love to these talented designers. Altenew is generously giving away $300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 10 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 02/16/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 12 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 02/19/2021.


I'm loving this new coloring book and can see myself taking it to work to get in some practice time. 
Each design has a no-line and a black outline version. 
Today I used both. 


I used my Altenew Watercolor Pan set today and chose to do some under painting before adding more detailed painting to the images. 
Under painting is just a fancy name for the first light wash of color you put down. In this case it creates my background. 



Forthe second card I did the same thing with some bolder color and then used my Altenew Artist Markers to color in the image creating a mixed media piece. 

You can see the no-line watercolor card in the video below. 


I'm the end of the hop today. I hope you enjoyed it! 

Thanks for stopping by!
