Video : Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

 

Oh Yay, would you believe that Altenew have done it again, they have now released a set of Watercolors, and there are 36 half pans and lots of Altenew colours that we have come to know and love!  To celebrate we are hopping along and you should have arrived here from LISA’s wonderful blog.

I wasn’t sure where to start exactly so I created my own watercolour background and with the ‘left over’ piece I stamped and coloured the beautiful Peony Spray flower.

My sentiment is stamped from the Oriental Orchid Stamp Set on a die cut Watercolor Stripes Cover Die.

Everything was popped up on a card front and some enamel dots were added.  I just love how everything coordinates!

I decided to film the unboxing and painting process.

    1. Wow….. you have inspired me to play with watercolours more….they do scare me a little, but I need to get them out again & play 🙂

  1. Love the die cut with the water colors behind it. Elegant with the flower on the side and the sentiment being small. Thanks for sharing

  2. I love the Altenew colors and think the watercolors are are brilliant. Love your card. Growing up I was always told not to have pinks and oranges together, but that’s wrong. It’s a great combination.

  3. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win. I want to try these watercolors out- they look very vibrant and I appreciate that they will pair so well with their inks!

  4. Love your card Therese. Hop you are still enjoying your holiday adventure. I’d been scouring the websites for these for the past few days and ordered mine here in the UK early this morning, hours before the e-mail was issued. Didn’t want to take any chances on not getting mine first time around. I’ll need to wait for them to arrive from the US, but it’ll be worth it.

  5. Hi Therese! I’m sorry I haven’t been visiting your blog and just leaving love for you on YT…Your card is absolutely GORGEOUS! Such a beautiful mix of colors and the cover plate is perfect with this lovely bloom!
    Thanks so much for another great video tutorial! I hope you and hubby are still having fun on your holiday!!!

  6. I love the pinks and oranges you used on the rose. So gorgeous!! I love this new watercolor set. It has some beautiful colors!

  7. I can why these watercolors would be great…I love your background and matching your flower to it….great looking card.
    well done tfs

  8. One of my very favorite stamps. And what a beautiful combination of colors you chose to bring this image to life! Love it!

  9. Beautiful card and a great video! Really worked out well stamping on the background you created and using that as the base layer for your flower. Thanks for sharing!

  10. What an absolutely gorgeous card! I love that you used the watercolor stripe cover die and left it white to layer over your watercolor! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  11. I had already ordered these watercolors before I got to your blog, because I had seen your card in the group on the order page and loved it, along with some others. As you say, there is a ton of talent in this group and the inspiration level is always high! Thanks!

  12. Hi I love the pinks in the background and the wonderful white striped border die across it. The contrast really makes the pinks shine. Is that a cold or hot press watercolor paper? What is the difference between the two? I always enjoy your videos and look forward to watching this one tomorrow when I am working out. It makes me enjoy my workout to hear a friendly voice! Hope you are enjoying your summer travels! Thanks again for always inspiring me!

    1. Hi Liz, I can’t remember for sure but I think it was actually the ‘hot’ pressed watercolor cardstock that I used (because I said it was smooth). That is the main difference between the two types, the hot pressed is smoother and the paint will dry quicker (good for wash type backgrounds) and the cold pressed has more ‘tooth’ a slightly rougher surface (but not as much as the ‘rough’ finished watercolor cardstock). hahaha, I just re read that and was wondering if it made any sense at all. thanks so much for your lovely comments and for visiting, Crafty hugs, Therese

  13. Absolutely love this! A watercolour set that is compact, easy to carry around, that co-ordinates with all my Altenew Inks. Love that the pans can be taken out so that individual colours can be replaced that are used more often. And the card inspiration is awesome!

  14. Your card is beautiful and I love how you did the background with the white die cut over it. and what a genius idea to create your flower using what you had cut off of the background!

  15. I love your card. I have been trying to get into water coloring more because I love the look of it. I actually did a card yesterday.

  16. Beautiful card! I watched your video this morning before I even knew anything about the blog hop. I knew I would probably purchase this set after watching. Love the colors on your card. I also really enjoy your videos! Thanks!

  17. Thank you for showing us the new watercolors. So happy they go with their ink pads so you can color coordinate the colors. I really like their choice of colors. Would make beautiful cards of florals. Would love to own a set.

  18. Therese, this card is gorgeous! Just love your colors and design…so much fun to watch you create! I can’t wait to try at these new watercolors…thanks for all the details- I love that they are artist grade!

  19. Such a beautiful card, I love the colors and how they blend and the splatter is lovely. Thanks for another awesome video too.

  20. Therese, thank you for sharing your informative video using the beautiful new Altenew Watercolour paint set. Your painted flower and background are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  21. Therese, I so enjoy watching your YouTubes. You explain without making it too technical. Love the new watercolors and your flower really shows the vibrancy of the new colors.

  22. Beautiful card! It’s really nice that the watercolours are labelled so you never have to guess what colour you are using.

  23. Hi Therese, While waiting for my very first watercolors to arrive I’ve been enjoying the hop and all the tutorials. You did a great job with this tutorial. It is refreshing to hear that I’m not the only one without much WC experience. Thank you for sharing that to all of us newbies!!!

  24. Welcome Home Therese. Those water colour pans look awesome. Love how you showcased them with that beautiful stamp and die. Such softness.

  25. It’s a beautiful country and with each photo I get saying need to do it again,.We are so lucky to live here. Love the latest card and that watercolouring is the in thing. I will have to give this set a try.

  26. Isn’t that the most fun way to play with color? I was so excited to watch this one, just because that’s one of my favorite mixes of colors for flowers. Thank you.

  27. Thise watercolours are so beautiful, I’m just beginning to try water colouring myself…..love your card Therese
    P.s…..I had to repeat the comment in this new post as my email address is incorrect In my last post

  28. Such a beautiful color scheme for this card. I have always loved the watercolor striped cover die, and now I think I have to get it, after seeing this card.

  29. I love orange and pink colors together too. I think I may have used it a bit too much lately! Your card is gorgeous! These watercolors are perfect for all of Altenew’s beautiful floral stamps. Will try the stamping on pre-colored watercolor CS and add more color. Brilliant!

  30. Oh Therese, gorgeous, just gorgeous!! Love the way they’ve included more than just 2 colours within the same family so you can get beautiful gradations & blends. I’d love to be able to purchase these.

  31. Beautiful work and I adore the colors. This hop is so much fun. I’m learning about so many wonderful artists like yourself I’ve never known before!

  32. /so exciting to see some of our fave ink colors in watercolors! Love what you have done with them on this lovely card! Thanks for the inspiration in your excellent video!

  33. Hi Therese, have just discovered you through this blog hop. So nice to hear an Aussie accent. Thanks for the great ideas on using painted paper – will have to try that! My only problem is waiting until it’s dry. (If i haven’t got my heating tool out)

  34. Such a beautiful card, Therese… Thanks for sharing your creative process and also for showing your swatches – so helpful to see the true colours!

  35. I’ve wanted that background die for so long and now I’ve seen it in white against all those beautiful watercolours, I’m even more determined to get my hands on it somehow. Stunning!!!

  36. I love the watercolour set! The colours are so vibrant yet subtle! Would love to recreate your card with these watercolours! the flowers looks gorgeous against the die cut background, Thanks for the inspiration!

  37. These watercolours look amazing! I love using watercolour pencils and have been wanting to try paints and these are the most perfect colours I’ve seen in a set!

  38. I am new to card making and I’m glad I started. I haven’t used watercolor yet, but it appears to be what everyone is talking about.

  39. Beautiful card. I love that these new watercolours coordinate with all the Altenew inks and other embellishment colours.

  40. I absolutely love the colors you used on this card. By using the scrap bit to stamp the flower, I think you got so much more interest and color variation due to the underpainting. Just beautiful!

  41. Your card is beautiful. I loved watching this process, I just find it so fascinating. Btw, I could listen to your lovely accent all. day.

  42. Lovely and vibrant card with this watercolor set. Amazing results from just “playing around”. Altenew has done it again, adding a beauty to our crafty world with amazing color, and you for sharing it with us. Thank you.

  43. Absolutely gorgeous card. Love the colouring and stunning watercolours very vibrant. I need to play more with watercolouring. Can you tell me what sharpener you use for your pencils please?Hope you are enjoying your trip.
    Happy Crafting
    Tracey.x

  44. I think your watercoloring looks very professional, so maybe I CAN do some of this. Thanks for telling that not all of the dark pans are truly dark colors. i love your final card and listening to you speak… video should be longer. LOL

  45. Your card turned out so beautiful! I like how you used your leftover background to stamp the peony on. Sometimes starting with white paper can be so intimidating.

  46. What an amazing card!!! I love the watercolored background, and the die-cutted panel and the gorgeous flower! Your technique of water-coloring the paper and then stamping on it and then adding more color is really great and I must try it! Thank you also for the great giveaway!

  47. I love the peachy pink colors you used and the watercolor stripe die you used on your card. Fingers crossed I win.

  48. I am a real novice to watercoloring and can’t wait to try these new paints. Love your watercolored background and how your peony blends so beautifully on your card. Thanks for showing us the unveiling of your new set and for your inspiration.

  49. Therese, this card is so beautiful. I would love a chance to win a good set of water color. Altenew inks has been one of the ones that I’ve been wanting to get for a long time. But when you’re on a fixed income, I have to get little by little. I’ve said it before, and I’m going to say it now. I love watching your videos.

  50. OMGosh!! I just LOVED your video & card you painted!! Just HAD to tell you that! Awesome is the best word I can think of!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
