Altenew January inspiration challenge : Take 2

Hi there!

Earlier this week I shared my first card for this month's Altenew Inspiration challenge . I also told you that you can expect more soon... so... here is number two, as promised !

 I used :


  • Sketchy-floral-stamp-set
  • Zig markers
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the hexagon background
  • Misti
  • Craft foam for dimension
  • Orange card base


I recently had a question in my comments about my colored card bases . I just use regular colored card stock as a card base. I simply adhere the top white panel to it. On the pictures it might look like special double sided card (color/white), but it's not 😊.

Something I realized while I was busy coloring this image (tip coming from a total non- expert) is that the less I think about how to watercolor, the more successful the attempt ! Just color and leave the watercolors to do their work! LOVE how this one turned out.

I was once again inspired by the fact that the inspiration piece is a quilt. I picked hexagons to add interest to my design because it's the first shape I think of when I think of a quilt!





Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

I love how you stamped and colored your floral image with Zigs and then die cut your image with a hexagon shape. Very creative and beautiful. TFS your card and tips too. Hugs..Nancy

I also find that quilts are really inspirational. I've been to a few quilt shows, and the artistry and hard work that goes into them just blows me away. Your card is wonderful. I love the hexagons.

This is SO gorgeous! I love the hexagons and your amazing watercoloring!♥

So beautiful -- colors, stamps, design! I agree the most satisfying watercolor results come when you just relax and let it flow. A not too detailed, open line image like this is a big help in that regard. You do such lovely work with your Altenew stamps!
