How to Make 2 Beautiful Floral Watercolor Panels + Video!

Today I share an 2 easy ways to create a beautiful floral watercolour background!  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 was inspired by one of my blog crushes Hannelie and in particular this card HERE, if you haven’t met Hannelie you definitely need to head her way!  Thanks yet again for the inspiration my friend.

To start I did an ink smooshing technique using the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.  As usual it became a little brighter than I anticipated lol.

  1. Really love the cards today Therese. The colour tones used in the backgrounds are so subtle. Thank you. You are a boundless source of inspiration.

  2. Lovely cards and so much dimension.
    Loved your colours today and liked how you used the mosaic stamp set in particular.
    It’s on my wish list and what you did today made a beautiful and controlled background.
    So inspiring as usual.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  3. So beautifully done, Therese! I love your soft and bright background and the gorgeous peonies. I didn’t know how to stamp on two layers, so your video helped a lot! Thank you for the tips. I appreciate that you visited my blog to leave a sweet comment. Hugs, Marge.

  4. It was so fun to see how you used two different ways to create your backgrounds. I love those large flowers and the detail in them – perfect for this overlapping technique!

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