ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER PAEONIA JAPONICA

In my opinion peonies are one the most fun flowers to color. I love the large petals of this flower, they give more space for coloring. Not speaking that the flower itself is very beautiful. New Build-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica has become one of my new favorite.

CARD

Yesterday I shared a card and video showcasing coloring on result non white cardstock using watercolor markers. Well the card I’m sharing today features the same technique. Only this time I user Parchment Cardstock.

Watercolor Markers Coloring On Kraft. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

The flower was white embossed onto a Parchment panel and then colored using markers from the new Watercolor Brush Markers – Autumn Festival Set. Namely I used the Orange Cream and Just Green markers. Since I was working on non watercolor paper I tried to use as less water as possible.

Also since the brush markers have very fine tip – you can imitate adding details with sharp pencil using them. On the flowers you can see the strokes which I added using markers.

After watercoloring was done I added white spray splatters and foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

Next I popped up a white on black sentiment strip.

Lastly I added several crystals to finish off the card.

    These flowers can look so different depending on the colors you choose. This could be a Christmas card if you just change the sentiment. I love the versatility of them. How pretty!!

LOL) But really, I love the colors, your painting, and the color of the background with splatters of course! Thank you (and all the other artists as well) for your experimentation from which we benefit so much! You are wonderful! Thank you Altenew for this design team.
