Today, I am using the Altenew Garden Grow stamp set. I love every image in this set, so we will be revisiting this collection again soon!
I started this card with a layer of Fabriano Watercolor paper. I use this paper frequently. The price is affordable and the paper is smooth enough for stamping and even hand-lettering.
First, I sponged on green and blue inks and then daubed a faint cloud layer with white pigment ink.
I stamped the arrangement of images that I wanted to work on today. The combinations for this stamp set is endless!
The images were painted with a couple different watercolor collections, one of which is a shimmery palette. I heat-set in between colors to prevent muddying and color-merging. I used a Uniball Signo white pen to create highlights. I re-added any details lost with a Staedtler Pigment Fineliner pen. Altenew’s Floral Shadow stamp set is where I got my sentiment, which I stamped with black ink.
I punched my butterflies with my favorite and frequently-used Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and glittered up the butterflies a little. I attached them with dots of glue and then put all my layers together.
Ta da! 🙂
Have a great day!
