Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hi there everyone!
You must be here from the fabulous Kathy Racoosin's blog.


Welcome to Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily Release Blog Hop!
You can start from the Altenew blog. That is where the fun starts!

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I will not be going into detail about the watercolouring process for this card because I have a video for you scheduled to go live on 8/31 at the Altenew YouTube channel! YAY! 
Because of my new setup, it has become easier for me to record my processes more frequently and easily.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The image looked quite daunting really. And I kept looking at the outlines as so not mix them up but I did mix up one flower with the leaf! LOL but hey? You cant tell, can you? :)

I had so much fun colouring this. The colours I used are Ruby Red from the Watercolor Brush Markers, the yellow and greens from the Artists' Watercolour Pan Set. I did use a bit of Moss Watercolour Brush Marker pigment as well. 

To make colouring easier and the process a tad faster for me, I did heat emboss the image.

I used my go-to stippling technique to add texture to the image. 

I kept the remaining card super simple. The total time it took me to colour this image was 21:25 minutes, that's how long the footage is and mind you, I was snacking in between too HAHA


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by 8/27/2020 for a chance to win. We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew Winners Page on 08/30/2020.

The next stop on the hop is Dana Joy

Erum- this is truly lovely--can't tell where you confused a leaf for a flower! Thanks for the reminder that multiple *types* of water coloring may suit a particular project...I tend to try to make things work w/ a sole pan set or marker set, and forget I can play with others on the same image.

Sue D said...

Pretty--I like the unique colors.

Elise said...

So pretty! I love the stippling effect you added! So glad to see others have the same problem I do sometimes on being able to tell the difference between petals, leaves, and white space! Lol 😆 gorgeous card!
