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.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 8/15/2018 for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 8/19/2018.
Also I will randomly choose a winner from the comments left on this post (only one comment per person) to win a $30 gift certificate to the Altenew online store, you have until midnight Tuesday August 14th (AEST) and I will announce the winner here on Wednesday August 15th.

This is gorgeous! Love your watercolor background and peony!
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 🙂
This is so cool card..liked it
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
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.
Beautiful! Love these colors and your work is always so neat and clean.
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!
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.
Very clever….love the background…..trust the holiday is still going well….of course Vic is a great tourist state…lol
love your color choices
Love your card! Thank u for sharing.

Very Pretty! Thanks for sharing. It was nice to hear I am not the only one not to familiar with water color. Thanks

well done tfs
I like the clean look of your card!
Beautiful background! Love the color combo~
Awesome cards. Just love the new watercolors.
Love the card! And, your accent. 😉
Wow, amazing card love who you colored over a colored paper . Pretty color combination?
One of my very favorite stamps. And what a beautiful combination of colors you chose to bring this image to life! Love it!
The colors are so tropical, just need an icy fruity drink to sip while water coloring. Thank so so much for sharing your amazing talent
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!
What a pretty card. So soft and delicate.
Wow! Your beautiful watercolor rose looks absolutely fantastic! I love this color palette,and the background cover pate makes a really pretty backdrop too!
Excellent video, Therese. Brilliant idea to color then stamp!
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!
Therese – I love your videos. Your color choices for the peony are gorgeous. And the final card is WOW!
Thanks for the inspiration.
Wow! What a beautiful flower!! I love the colors and the coloring!!
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!
Love this card and your video was so much fun! The watercolors are so beautiful; must get them soon.
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!
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
Love your flower and background!
such a beautiful card, Therese – love everything about it!

As always dear, you never disappoint…..your card is just scrumptous…..Loved it….thank you so much.
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!
Lovely watercoloring! Thanks for sharing.
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!
Just beautiful! I think using the previously painted piece for the flower was a great idea as the underpainting makes it blend so perfectly!

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.
Hi Tracey, To sharpen my Prismacolor Pencils I use a T’Gaal sharpener, these are quite reasonably priced and you can adjust the length of point that you want to sharpen too (and they come in cute colours). Here is a link https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kutsuwa-Adjustable-Pencil-Sharpener-RS017PK/dp/B006CQW342 thanks so much for your lovely words and for visiting me at my blog. Crafty hugs, Therese
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
Your card is so beautiful. The color combinations really work well together.
I enjoyed watching your video and hope to some day be able to watercolor confidently!
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.
Love your card and your paint colors. Just beautiful!
Thank you for inspiring me with your beautiful work.
Love your work this is a stunning colour combination these water colours are very tempting…
So pretty! I love the range of colors in the set and the intensity of them!
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!
I love the colored strips on the card – makes a great background!
So pretty and I think I can copy that too!
I love the peachy pink colors you used and the watercolor stripe die you used on your card. Fingers crossed I win.

I love your card. From the background to the focused flower.

Love that background! Can’t wait to try these pretty watercolors!
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.
Lovely card…nice color combination. TFS
So right when you say that all coordinates beautifully! Nicely done card!
beautiful colors. I love your card!
OMGosh!! I just LOVED your video & card you painted!! Just HAD to tell you that! Awesome is the best word I can think of!
