Hello and welcome to Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop. We’re celebrating the release of the new Watercolor Brush Markers – Tropical Fiesta Set.

TROPICAL FIESTA SET

This set has some of my favorites – Desert Night, Crimson, Turquoise.

There are so many beautiful projects from talented designers. Also you on each stop you you have a chance to win a prize.

For my card I decided to use blue and brown color scheme. It’s one of those always winning color combinations.

Onto a watercolor panel I white embossed a background using stamps from the Wallpaper Art Stamp Set. I was using the matching masks to mask off the elements.

Next I watercolored the design using the Desert Night, Paper Bag and Turquoise Watercolor Markers. “Watercolored” is probably a very strong word to use here. I did a very basic coloring by adding water and pigment from the markers to the elements.

After that I added white paint splatters onto the panel and then foam mounted it to a white card base.

I stamped a sentiment using stamps from the Birthday Builder Stamp Set and Desert Night Dye Ink onto a white stripe. And then popped it onto the card. Which I finished off by adding several Snow Crystals.

    Oh Svitlana, you’ve done it again! You’ve “knocked our socks off”! Old saying I know, but WOW! Love this so much! You said it’s not really like watercolouring as it’s so easy with these brushes. Maybe I need to “just do it” & get a set. Watercolouring is my favourite medium but I’m sure not good at doing it. Your card is like a surprise ending of a movie seeing as it is at the end of the blog & is super gorgeous. Thanks so much!
