Hey card making friends and welcome back. Today I have a New Card Making Video – Altenew Peony Spray to share with you. I have long had a love affair with Altenew and their beautiful floral stamps and as I am no longer a S.U. demonstrator, I am free to post cards I have created with these beautiful Altenew products.
Their images are beautifully sketched, the stamps create a crisp image and who doesn’t love a coordinating die to cut them out.
How to create the Altenew Peony Spray Card:
You can purchase the Altenew Artist Markers in a variety of ways. I started with a couple of these 4 pack sets just to make sure I liked them (and I do).
You can also order the Artist Markers in sets of 12, in Set A, Set B and Set C, or, you can order all 36 at a time, with the re-inkers. I just did that and I’m hoping they arrive today. Altenew also has replacement brush nibs for their markers. I love that they are refillable and have replacement tips – both were selling features for me.
Stamp the Altenew Peony Spray image in Permanent Black Ink onto Hammermill 100# card stock.
Next, color each petal individually, starting with the lightest of the markers to flood the entire area and then adding shadows with the darker colours before going back and blending them together with the lightest colour.
Use the colorless blender to blend colors, remove ink or add highlights. Watch the video below, I colour a petal and a leaf for you before showing you how I created the background.
How to create the Background:
For the Background I tried out the Altenew Mini Cube Inks. Again, I ordered a few of the small ones to try out their ink before investing in all the large ones and I’m happy to say I love them, great colours and you can watercolor with them YIPEE!.
and for the background I used the Forest Glades and Coral Bliss cubes
Smear some ink onto the craft mat , wet down the watercolor paper and used the Watercolor Brushes to pick up the ink and add it to the paper.
This gave me my basic background. I let it dry a bit, and then squeezed out a drop of water into my smeared ink, picked it up again with my watercolor brush, and flicked it onto the paper for the second layer (those cool blotchy dots), watch the video below for further explanation on how I do this.
