Altenew Bulid-A-Flower: Anemone


Altenew Build-A-Flower Anemone no line watercolouring using distress inks by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

Hello friends!
As you all know by now that every 15th of the month Altenew reveals a new Build-A-Flower stamp plus die set and this time we are introducing Anemone.

Isn't it gorgeous?!

Here is what I created.

I went for the no line watercolour look using distress inks as my watercolours.
I wanted to give this card a watercolour illustration look and I think it looks close enough.
I stamped the flowers in Antique Linen and the flower centers are stamped using Black Soot so that they are not crispt but more faded or distressed.

I spent the whole afternoon colouring this layer over layer and waited for it to air dry before adding all the details. I used a very light hand to add my "veins".
I stamped the sentiment over part of the image with Versafine Onyx Black.
When I was gluing down the sequins with Glossy Accents, a big blob dropped on my sentiment and the ink started to run! I had to fix it with a white gel pen and some more watercolouring. You can see the blurry "B".
I added more watercolouring outside the lines to give an illusion of more plants in the distance.
I hope you like my card. I am kinda proud of it since this is a 100% watercolour piece and NO pencils were used in adding details.
You can hop on over to the Altenew Card Blog and the Scrapbook Blog to check out what the other designers made.

That is all from my side.
Have a great day.

Gorgeous card Masha Allah Erum. I am sort of anxious at trying my hand at no line coloring. I am not so sure I can do it. You made it look so easy.
