I loved the colors in the March Altenew Inspiration Challenge. I decided to use alcohol inks on watercolor paper. I thought the look would be softer than Yupo paper and more in keeping with the spring theme for the challenge.
- I laid a stencil over the watercolor paper and inked it with Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed with white embossing powder.
- Next, I used the three colors of alcohol ink from my collection that best matched the photo. I used felt blenders and blending solution to move the color around. I thought a few pops gold would be nice so I added that at the end.
- After the watercolor panel was dry, I die cut the \”K\” from Altenew\’s Mega Alphabet die collection.
- I made two top folding A2 cards and adhered the panel with foam tape for dimension. The \”K\” die cut was so beautiful that I added it to the second card. Since the \”K\” was a bit smaller I trimmed down the second card to 4\” x 5 1/4.
I made these personalized initial notecards for myself, but like them so much I am going to make more for gifts.
Here is the inspiration photo:
I love those spring greens, blues and lavenders.
