Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello and welcome to the Altenew Ultimate Watercolor Lovers Blog Hop!

You must be here from Jaycee's blog.

If not then please start from the Altenew Card Blog.


Altenew has released a coloring book and two sets of paintbrushes; detailed and round!! WOOT WOOT!!

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My colored panel is one of the no-line pages from the book! Yes! It has black outlined images and also very light, grey outlined images too that, as you can see, end up looking like perfect no line watercolor paintings!

I thoroughly enjoyed just coloring this. I wish I had filmed. These types of watercolor projects are long and time-consuming. 

Altenew Coloring Book | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I took way too many photos of my project because and look how I even stepped up my flatlay game LOL I usually avoid other things/props around my project except for maybe something floral. But this was a special occasion :)

I don't like the last photo above as it's taken from my phone, inside my studio with artificial lights. I am someone who has the luxury of taking photos in gorgeous daylight and artificial light photo straightaway looks like crap to me with harsh shadows. 
But I wanted to share the shot above as well, maybe some of my AECP peeps will find it helpful and we can have a discussion about it. 



$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky
winners and a $20 gift certificate to 10 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 02/16/2021 for a chance to win.


The next stop on the hop is the brilliant Therese Calvird.

If this weren't a watercolor blog hop, I would think you used colored pencils on your flower card. This looks so pretty. I am going to go back and read about how you did it. Just gorgeous.

How pretty! It is obvious that this style with the fine coloring detail would be time consuming but the result is so worth it. Thanks for the beautiful eye candy!

Teri S said...

Erum, this is beautiful! It reminds me how f Beatrix Potter’s beautiful paintings from her detailed studies of plants and animals. Just gorgeous. 😊 I struggle with exactly the element of photography you’ve described here, by the way. I want to learn as much as I can about photography for cards because I seldom feel I’ve captured the colours correctly.
