Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

 Hello friends!

I am delighted to be part of the Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop.
 
If you arrive from the blog of Caly Person, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. For details, please visit Altenew Card Blog.

For my coloring project, I used the new Woodless Watercolor Pencils. I was slightly concerned how I can make these pencils work best....

However, after few practices, I started to get the hang of it! These coloring pencils truly are kind of magical. No more worrying about too much. too little water.

Also, the pigments of the pencils are so rich that you can easily add colors and see the vibrancy coming to life in front of your eyes.

I am not great at coloring, but these pencils make my work look pretty decent.

I also used the new Altenew Liner Pen Set to add "faux stitching". To add shine to my water-coloring, I applied Metallic Watercolor Pan Set.
