Hello friends! Welcome back to a new post. Today I am sharing a card I made with one for my favorite stamps from Altenew. I chased after the Statement Flowers set for a while and it was always sold out, until I recently got it from the Crafty Meraki store and had to color it right away! If you have been eyeing this set like me, you should snag it right now, as my readers get a 20% discount on the stamps I am featuring in August. Shop here and the discount will reflect during checkout - Sandhya's Crafty Collection.
For my card today, I started with a piece of Arched cold presses watercolor paper that was a smidge smaller than my A2 card panel. I stamped and heat embossed the Statement flowers with Brutus Monroe Raven embossing powder. I would recommend the Raven Sparkle for a more sparkly finish. I watercolored this with Karin markers. For Arches paper, I prefer to start with the colors scratched out on my glass mat and paint like traditional watercoloring. Then, I go back in and added intense color directly with the marker in the nooks and crannies and the fine tip makes that super easy.
