Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set + Artist Markers + Artists' Watercolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there!

Welcome to Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop.




You must be here from the Altenew Card Blog.
If yes, then you are on the right track :)

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set + Artist Markers + Artists' Watercolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I will have a video up for this card on the Altenew YouTube and Blog on 1/25 so be sure to check it out. Please click this direct link to the VIDEO and the POST (these will go live on 1/25)


Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Outline Stamp Set + Artist Markers + Artists' Watercolors | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I coloured the images in Artists Alcohol Markers in various shades. I mixed pinks and purples to get a very different look for my flowers. 
I also mixed greens from different colour families to get a unique tropical colour tone for my leaves.
I fussy cut the panel and then added some watercolor to it. Since my alcohol markers shades were custom made, I had to mix a couple of greens to get the perfect colour for the background. 
Because the Altenew colour families are the same throughout their product line, it was very easy to replicate the same custom colour shade.

Next, I added watercolour to my base as well so that it would match the top portion. I did add some stamping on this panel as well for a more continuous, flowy look of the floral design.

I did not use a watercolour cardstock for this purpose so I was very careful while watercolouring.

I hope you will check out the video when it goes live on Monday on January 25th.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there everyone!

Welcome to Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory Release.


You must be here from LauraJane's blog.

If not, you can start the hop from the Altenew blog.


Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I die-cut all the pieces out of the 9x12 Watercolor Cardstock by Altenew. 

I used a mix of Essential 12 Pan Set and Artist Watercolour Pan Set to colour them.

I actually found this particular shade of Morning Glories why I was googling their photos. I wanted to do something other than blue as I have done that previously. 


I found the photo above and just changed the colours of the leaves to make it my own :)



Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Morning Glory | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the same colours to color the background too!

Altenew Fresh Start Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to the Altenew January Release! 

You must be here from the talented Terri Koszler's blog.

Please start at the Altenew blog to view the complete release.

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Vintage Garden Stamp & Die & Coloring Stencil Bundle to create quite a few images using Jet Black Mixed Media Ink, Magenta, and Pastel Sunrise Dye Inks. I was having so much fun hence the three cards.

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my slimline card, I started by ink blending Magenta Dye Ink mainly through the Vintage Garden Colouring Stencil. In some areas, I added a bit of Pastel Sunrise and it added such a cool look to the image!
Once I was done, I stamped the outline image in Obsidian Ink

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
For my background, I used 9 x 12 Watercolor Cardstock by Altenew. Which is quite textured, as you can see. I coloured my panel with the same colour inks. Then I added a few black paint splatters.
After adhering the stamps, I stamped the sentiment. 

I do have a video for these three cards I made but I had no time to edit it. How do you guys find the time to create videos and upload them for each project you make? I do shoot them, but they are left in my laptop collecting dust :/

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my second card, I used only Magenta Dye ink on the flower and  Jet Black Mixed Media Ink  on the leaves. I applied the black ink with a light touch so that it appeared more ombre than one solid colour.


Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my background, I used the A2 Watercolour Cardstock by Altenew and the Jet Black Watercolour Brush Marker to create a dramatic look. 


Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The sentiment is from the Block Sentiments Stamp Set.

Again, I used the colouring stencil and only Jet Black Mixed Media Ink to colour. In some places, I tried to use a light touch for a shaded effect.

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The sentiment is from Block Sentiments Stamp Set.

Altenew Enchanted Roses Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On A2 Watercolour Cardstock, I heat embossed the image in Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I then used the Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the images. 

I also added a lot of gold and black paint splatters.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony + Watercolor Brush Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The images Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise images were heat embossed and coloured with the Watercolour Brush Markers by Altenew. 

As you know the Watercolour Brush Markers are intense, bold, and reacts to water beautifully therefore I took full advantage of these qualities to create jewel-toned rainbow flowers. 

You can create these in any colours you want as long as they do not mix to form a muddy grey/brown colour. And even if you choose to use colours that dont mix well, be careful while colouring, and all will be well :)
