Altenew Celebrating Watercolors Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 Hello my friends!

I am delighted to be part of the Watercolor Blog Hop.

Watercoloring became hugely popular among crafters due to the ease and availability of products. I, for one, love watercoloring and love using it along with my card-making.
 
If you arrive from the blog of Seeka, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. You can find all the details about this op over Altenew Card Blog.

What I love about water-coloring is ...
how therapeutic it is to just get the water out and mix the colors and paint.

I love doing water-coloring in front of TV. I usually watch something mindless. Haha.

The white dish I used was meant for Sushi sauces. I love the weight and the look of it and decided to use it strictly for watercoloring instead.  I also adhered the paint labels inside the pan for easy reference.

I turned my watercoloring page into a card. I can not say enough good things about the Watercolor Coloring Book. The images are beautiful and the watercolor paper's quality is top-notch.

About the Watercolor Coloring Book: This gorgeous coloring book features popular Altenew flowers in beautiful compositions. You will enjoy coloring 12 floral designs with both black and gray outlines. Coloring on the light gray outlined images will give you a no-line watercolor look, while coloring on the black print will give you a stamped look.

 I took advantage of the sentiment die and made the die cut once the page was dried. The Simple Greetings Die Set has a word die and backer die. I highlighted the word die in the Brushed Gold Metallic Cardstock.
