Altenew April Inspiration Challenge


Hello,

I've been really enjoying the Altenew blog  recently. So many of the featured cards look like mini  masterpieces - sometimes it's hard to believe that they've been created using stamps.

Anyway, I thought I would have a go at this month's challenge and try a bit of watercolouring.  I'm not good at watercolouring...I never seem to achieve a soft, pretty look but I do find it easier with Zig Clean Colour pens:





I used Floral Motifs and the die cut circles were coloured with Ken Oliver's Colour Burst pigment inks. I also added some stencilling with texture paste to the background.

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Showers and/or Flowers.

Thanks for calling by,

Claire
