Altenew Peony Spray Stamp Set | No line watercoloring with distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi everyone!
You must be here from the ridiculously talented Vincenza's blog.
If you find the time, do check out her brilliant designs. She is amazing!

We are celebrating Altenew's 4th year! WOOT!
It has been a little over one year since I joined Altenew. I still pinch myself at times that I am part of this incredible company. I absolutely LOVE their products and it shows in my work too!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank YOU. You have been so supportive and I can't thank you enough!

I have had requests for no line watercolouring and I thought this is a perfect time to share a process video!

Altenew Peony Spray Stamp Set | No line watercoloring with distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Peony Spray Stamp Set for my card today. I have done watercolouring with distress inks.

Altenew Peony Spray Stamp Set | No line watercoloring with distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by stamping with Antiue Linen and then added aa mix of pinks and oranges to my flower petals. To add additional detail, I added brown and black as well.

I used the coordinating die to die cut the watercoloured image and popped it onto a panel to which I added light paint splatters.

Now, the good stuff!
