Last week, I spent a fun filled hour or two with my sweet friend Nora Noll of Creative Touch. We had been scouting out a technique or two for our crafty time … Therese Calvird to the rescue! More specifically her recent water-color play time with Altenew's newest Build-a-Flower - you'll find her wonderful video here [and you will learn more by watching it, than by me talking you through, believe me!]
I have PLENTY of gorgeous Altenew florals sets - but what I didn't have were the Altenew water brush markers. No worries - I had plenty of luck using the Altenew water color pan set by wetting a few of the cubes, and applying the paint to my stamps with a brush - then it was misted, and stamped!
Enough chatter! Here are my cards made using the Altenew Build-a-Flower Anemone, the second stamp in the layer, with the addition of the outline:
Before putting those supplies away, I HAD to have a bit of playtime with grey. and surprise a bit of blue, too!
There are those gorgeous Glass Glitter that
Therese enabled me to buy, too!!
Nora made twice as many cards as I did during our crafty chat - just by doing a bit of second generation stamping - SO smart! Please do pay her a visit - she used a different Altenew set than I have and her stamping was wonderful using the watercolor markers - can't wait to see her finished cards!
Thanks so much, Nora! It truly did help to see a friendly face, and craft while chatting away!
Let me know if YOU would enjoy a little video crafting, too - any time within reason will do!
I'm sharing the colorful one with the gals at The Flower Challenge - they are looking for florals from Summer or Winter depending on the hemisphere YOU live in!
