For my first post, I am sharing a couple of cards I created using the Altenew Flower Garden Stamp Set.

Altenew Watercolor Essential 12 pan set. The 12 pan set features a handpicked collection of colors that are perfect for coloring floral images. I used the waterbrush that comes with the set for all the watercoloring, the brush has a fine tip and provides a regulated flow of water which I find perfect for my watercoloring needs.
I've used Puffy Heart, Rubellite, and Warm Sunshine colors for the large rose and Warn Sunshine, Crimson, and Rubellite for the smaller flower.
Once I was happy with my watercoloring I stamped the images again with the obsidian black pigment ink. Doing this step provides crisp black outlines to the watercolored images which might have otherwise been dulled with the watercolor pigment coming on top of it.
I then die cut the images using coordinating dies.
For the watercolor background, I just went over a 4" x 5.25" piece of white watercolor cardstock with a size 12 round watercolor brush fully loaded with Puffy Heart, Rubellite, and Warm Sunshine colors. I removed pigment from some places using a wet paper towel to create depth and texture.
To finish this card, I added some paint splatters in white, Puffy Heart, and Warm Sunshine colors.
