I started by making a background using Altenew’s Narrow Brick Stencil. I mixed Texture Embossing Paste and Shimmer Spray which I then tinted with diluted purple Watercolor from the 36 pan set. I repeated this and added diluted pink watercolor to a second pile of embossing paste. I then ran this over the stencil in random locations. The two colors of brick are the same colors I used on the flowers.
On two panels of watercolor paper, I brushed on bold watercolors from the 36 pan set. I dried the panels and added a second layer so I had really saturated color. Above is a photo of the three panels I used to make this card.
I really like dimension when I am designing a card and Altenew’s Instant Dimension Foam Tape will keep me stocked for quite a while. It is a big wheel of double sided foam tape that is about 1/2″ wide and 8’+ long PLUS the release paper is floral and quite fun! I found using foam tape really makes my projects pop.
