Altenew May Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Do you like the change up the way you add colour? Today I used watercolour and blending techniques to add colour, they are both easy and fun to do!

But first, this post is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew so you should have arrived here from the MARYAM’s wonderful Blog.

I started today with a washy watercolour background which I created very quickly with the Artists’ Watercolor Pan Set.

Altenew - Simply Spring - Ornamental Bliss - Featured Sentiments Die (card) 1 copy

I then stamped the bouquet Simply Spring with Obsidian Ink .

And added a Featured Sentiments negative space die sentiment from the Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set.

Aren’t these Dovetail Butterflies beautiful! I did change up the colour because I was feeling in an orange mood lol.

This card has a lot of ink blending, both on the butterfly and the Bitterroot Flower Layering Stencil Set in the background.

And finally, I added a simple sentiment from the Wispy Begonia Stamp Set.

  1. Wow! Your cards are gorgeous! The black and yellow butterfly really pops against the stamped background!

  2. Beautiful watery colors on the first card and I love the negative space sentiment! The brilliant butterfly is extra gorgeous sitting on the simple black and white flowers! Two awesome cards, Therese!

  3. Oh my, these are all gorgeous. I really like the one that has the subtle background, and the brilliant butterfly.

  4. Therese, one would think I might know every species of butterfly by now – but I’ve never seen, or heard of the Dovetail! It is stunning!
    LOve this specimen left in black and white, and all of the washy water-coloring you’ve done to attract him!
    I don’t think our Monarchs would mind one bit sharing their color with this beauty! Such a gorgeous choice for those grey Bittersweet!
    =]

  5. Simply amazing!!! Love the pop of color with the butterfly card and the soft colors and window sentiment on the first card 💕 Thanks for the inspiration Therese!

  6. Love both of these beautiful butterfly cards. Don’t make me choose a favorite! Lol!

  7. These are both really pretty cards! I love that “negative space” sentiment; I don’t think I have ever seen that before.

  8. The watercolour of the first card is so beautiful and I like that inset sentiment idea. The grey flowers work so well to highlight the second butterfly.

  9. The Orange and yellow butterfly with the gray florals is just amazing! Such a beautiful design.

  10. So beautiful. I really love the sentiment cutout in the first one and your coloring is so amazing.

  11. Both cards are beautiful. I love the cut out for the sentiment, clever. The butterfly and bitteroot stencil is stunning, love it.

  12. I’d love to watch you create one of those “wishy washy” backgrounds. Mine never seem to come out as lovely as this one is! And I adore those soft inked florals behind the butterfly! Just beautiful!

  13. So soft and pretty, Therese. Thanks for sharing your amazing talents using these FAB new Altenew products. Blessings.

  14. Beautiful, beautiful butterflies! Love the watercolor background, and how lovely that subtle bitter root stencil background is behind the butterfly 🦋

  15. All are beautiful, but the stenciled grey flower with butterfly caught my eye. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Your second card really caught my eye. The subdued stenciling colors really emphasize the beauty of the butterfly in all its orange glory! Thanks for the inspiration.

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