Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
s
Yay, Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop from Altenew is here!
If you own the previous Watercolor Markers Sets, this is another stellar one to get!
I am excited to share a project with the new Watercolor Brush Markers Tropical Fiesta.
s


If you arrive from the blog of Laurel Beard, , you are in the right place!
All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew's Card Blog and Scrapbook Blog.

This set comes with so many gorgeous shades and colors.
I decided to zero in the blue and purple shades.
The new release stamp "Wallpaper Art Stamp" is perfect for watercoloring.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDieBundle-Virginia#1

For the green, I mixed a few of the green and blue in the leaves. I also stamped the background with the Trendy Circle Stamp Set.  AND because the watercolor match with Altenew's Ink, it was super easy to find inks that will coordinate with my water-colored images.

Altenew-WallpaperArtStampDieBundle-Virginia#2

I added a bit of textures with Feeling Dotty Stencil and Embossing Paste.
As you can see, I had a lot of fun coloring the image and stamping the background.

The intensity of the watercolors is unbelievable!
