Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by - October 28, 2019


Hello crafty friends! I'm so excited to be joining this blog hop with Altenew and friends to celebrate a brand new product! The new Metallic Watercolor Pan Set is joining the family and I can't wait to share some inspiration with you today. Be sure to comment at each stop along the hop for your chance to win some fabulous prizes!


To let the metallic properties of the watercolor shine, I decided to use them on black card stock. This meant that I needed to use much less water but it also allowed the shine and glimmer of the watercolor to pop off the card front. 

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 11/2/2019 for a chance to win.We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 11/4/2019.

I started by stamping the leaves and a flower image from the Flower Garden stamp set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I decided on heat embossing because I wanted to be sure that the details stood out on the images even after adding a couple layers of the metallic watercolor. I used a gold shade for my leaves which gives such a pretty gilded feel, and a beautiful red shade for my rose image. I fussy cut the images out and arranged them in an open wreath on my card front. 


To personalize this card, I used the letter "J" from the Tall Alpha Die Set to stand for the recipients name, and placed it inside the partial wreath. For embellishments I broke out my gold Nuvo crystal drops which I think contrasts so well against the black card stock. 

I love how smooth this metallic watercolor is. There are so many beautiful colors that shimmer and shine and will help make your projects stand out from the ordinary! I hope that you've enjoyed seeing how I used the new watercolor set today. Your next stop is the incredibly talented Svitlana Shayevich.
