Altenew Bold Sentiments Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My first, rainbow watercolor card features the Bold Sentiments Stamp Set. These were stamped only once in Obsidian Pigment Ink, which is back in stock by the way!

For my watercolor, I used the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set on A2 Watercolor Cardstock by Altenew. If you want to see how I create backgrounds like these, I have quite a few tutorials though THIS one, in particular, will be helpful. Skip to the 2:27 mark.

And then for my second card, which was also super fun to create, I used the Enjoy Life Stamp Set.

Altenew  Castle Garden Stamp | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I have a watercolor card to share with you today featuring the Castle Garden Stamp. This is a gorgeous set and this is huge so you can use various positions and change the layout of your cards. I created one more card using the same stamp set which I will share next month and all I did was stamp it slightly lower and more off the edge, it changed the look quite a bit.

For the watercolor, I stamped the image on A2 Watercolor Cardstock in Obsidian Ink and used the Watercolor 36 Pan Set to color the panel.

Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello friends!

Welcome to the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals Release.


You must be here from the lovely Colleen Balija's blog.


Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I love the card that I am sharing today. It is super easy to recreate! I used the coloring stencils from the kit and some Mini Blending Brushes to add color to the stamped image. And, I absolutely LOVE the result!!
Once I was done, I adhered this onto a Navy Cardstock and added a few white splatters to add some texture.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello and welcome to Altenew Build-a-Flower: Belladonna Lily Blog Hop!

It is already April! It is quite hot where I am.


Let's get to the fun part! You must be here from the talented Nenette Madero's blog. And I am sure you must be wowed by her cards!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I will be sharing two cards with you because I stamped quite a few images and I was left with one extra image. I thought I would whip up one simple card.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
My first card features an ombre ink background with a blend of inks from Espresso to Rhodolite Crisp Dye Inks. I applied them with a very light touch to get a soft look. But you can still see the gradient from top left to bottom right diagonally and it looks really pretty.


Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On the second card, I used the same blend of inks but this time, with a heavy hand and I also masked off the borders using the Satin Masking Tape by Altenew.
For the flower layers, I used  Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Rubellite, and Rhodolite Crisp Dye Inks.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On the background, I added tons of fine metallic gold watercolor from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set.

Altenew March 2022 Folktales & StoriesCollection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to the March 2022 Release!

You must be here from Mindy Eggen's blog.

Altenew Endless Florescence Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

 My first card features the Endless Florescence Stamp Set.

Altenew Endless Florescence Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the image on A2 Watercolor cardstock in Obsidian Ink and used the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set to color the panel. 

Altenew Endless Florescence Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This was fun, loose watercolor. Much like the ones I share on YouTube. I added splatters of white chalk paint in the end. 

Altenew Tree of Fantasy Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I was most excited about this stamp! I love leaves, trees and I love to use them in an artsy way. So I did use the layering stamps and inks from different families to create my autumn tree.

Altenew Tree of Fantasy Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Then I added my own touch of watercolour to it. So it would feel the tree is still blooming and look like it's on fire! I also added some dead/dry grass and painted ground.  I liked how it turned out. You can step this up and further add foliage to the background, add some sky and maybe greenery if you were doing this on a slightly larger scale.

Altenew Cat Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Alright, isn't this the cutest?! I used the packaging from the Cat Life Die Set and created my shaker out if it! The panel is A2 Watercolor Cardstock and for the background, I used Cherry Blossom and Tea Party pigments from the Artists' Watercolor.


Altenew Cat Life Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I was so engrossed with the shaker, I forgot to colour the image completely. But I think it looks ok, goes with the look :p
