2 Easy Metallic Watercolor Backgrounds – Altenew Take 2 With Therese + Video!

Today I share an easy way to create backgrounds using the new Altenew Gradient Cardstock and Metallic Watercolors!  This is part of my Take 2 with Therese video series with Altenew and if you haven’t caught any of these videos before I have a link to my playlist with more inspiration HERE.

I started with some of the Sea Shore Cardstock and thought this would look sweet with the Enchanted Gold Metallic Watercolor as stripes.

I added a beautiful Grateful Heart flower which I coloured with the Watercolor Brush Markers.

And one of my current faves, the Fancy Hello Die (and some sneaky jewels).

For my second card design I used the Sterling Silver to create my stripes.

But this time the flower is from the stunning Poppy Garden Stamp Set.

I added an Antique Silver embossed sentiment from the Wavy Roses Stamp Set and scattered some clear droplets.
