Altenew + The Daily Marker Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Did you know that colouring with watercolour pencils is REALLY easy? If you have been avoiding watercolouring but enjoy the look of it and want to give it a try, then today I share some tips to help you.

Today’s video is part of the Watercolor Therapy Blog Hop here and I am so very excited to be a part of it!

Altenew - Kind Reminders - Celebrate Us - Woodless Watercolor Pencils - Take 2 With Therese (card video) 1

These beautiful flowers from the Kind Reminders Stamp Set were the perfect choice as they have that ‘watercolour-y’ look and I used the Woodless Watercolor Pencils from Altenew!

I also added some ink splatters as well as a sentiment from the Celebrate Us set.

My second card design is coloured differently and you can see how in the video linked below.

This time I added a Waterbrush Hello and a sub-sentiment from the Hello and Hugs set.

  1. Both of your cards are gorgeous! I do love the white tips on the petals on your first card! Thank you for the wonderful video!

  2. Two examples of your ‘I can do anything’ style, Therese! Proves that we could put any coloring medium/technique/product in your hands… I swear, if I gave you a bucket of mud, you’d make a card that would put Hallmark to shame! lol!
    All that to say: just gorgeous!
    =]

  3. I like the version without the inked base but only because I like the white highlights. It was lovely watching you colour both, and I agree watercolour pencils are a bit easier than straight watercolour.

  4. My preference is the watercolor one, but like them both. Always look forward to your creations. Cute cat. So cute that she joins you on your desk.

  5. Both cards are lovely – not sure I could pick one over the other! Love your videos as you explain so well as you show your techniques.

  6. Hi and thanks for todays two card offering.
    Loved both the cards and I have to say I was really taken by the second card.
    The amount of depth you achieved really impressed me.
    I had thought I’d order the pencils but I missed dropping them in the cart!
    Do have a load of loveliness from Altenew that arrived this week.
    Just waiting for the weekend to play.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  7. Haha I can’t pick one! It’s like asking which is your favourite child – my answer is always it depends on the day!

    Love the use of the water colour paper for the sentiment. Doh! hand on forehead! you know I have to have my whites matching!! 😉

  8. Oh, I’m going to have to check out your video. I hardly ever use my watercolor pencils. Such stunning cards. So very pretty.

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