Sandi MacIver – Papercraft Artist – Altenew Enchanted Iris – Easy Watercolor Techniques
Hi stamping friends, welcome back, I have a NEW VIDEO for you today with more products from my friends at Craft Stash.
Say Hello to Altenew Enchanted Iris. As an avid gardener, I absolutely adore Iris. I had a collection of over 50 varieties in our Quesnel B.C. garden, and I hope to start that collection over again here in Drayton Valley Ab. One of my favourite colour combinations is the purple and yellow one so I had to create that today.
I admit going slightly to the funky side on this one, haha, so I hope you like it. I’m blaming this on the Altenew Watercolor palette – with 36 colours to choose from, I had to experiment, haha. You could also use the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers for this project too. NOTE – I am not an expert in water coloring, I’m simply showing you how I like to add the colors to obtain these results.
I also included a New (to me) Altenew background die – Watercolor Stripes Cover Die. It’s the same size as an A2 card which is kind of cool, and I love how it lets the base card colour peek through!
The Enchanted Iris stamps are beautifully designed with great details and are easy to colour, with a lovely selection of sentiments to go with – AND, there are coordinating dies – now why didn’t I order those? haha….live and learn.
I created a video for you walking you through the creative steps for the card. If you are reading this in an e-mail, you may need to CLICK HERE to view the video – or SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube Channel to get automatic notifications when I load new videos – and you can watch them there in HD – BONUS.
I also created a PDF File for you for today’s card with all the tools listed, cutting instructions, etc. Click below to download it – and check out my FREE PDF Gallery – for more fun card ideas.
Here’s a close up of the flowers, I used a White Gel pen to add the white dots for some wow – highlights.
