ALTENEW BUILD A FLOWER CORAL CHARM

There are a few outline flower images and a leaf sprig in the Coral Charm set. The large flower and leaves also have solid and layering stamps. In addition there are two lovely sentiments. I chose to work with the outline image of the large flower and leaf sprig and my watercolours.

This is a simple card to make, I stamped the images in Antique Linen Distress ink and then watercoloured. As you watercolour the Distress Ink blends in to the paint and fades away to give a no-line watercoloured look. You may be surprised to know that my colour scheme for this watercolour was inspired by the same palette as this vibrant card. It’s the same chartreuse yellow/green with pinks but just much more muted colours.

When dry, I finished off with a few coloured pencil details and then stamped one of the lovely sentiments on the panel in Versafine Onyx Black. I trimmed the panel to just smaller than and A2 Neenah Desert Storm card base and adhered with foam tape. I then added Sweet Shop sequins and Nuvo Limoncello Jewel Drops to accent.
