Hi everyone! It's time for another Wednesday Challenge! I'm in my third week as the guest designer for the Wednesday Challenge!!
This week's theme is Fantastic Florals and we are featuring Altenew. Can I just say how excited I was when found out I got to play with Altenew products!?! They are my absolute favorite stamp company. I love their floral images. I really like their inks, too. They're crisp and they dry relatively fast, which prevents smudging. My card features a whimsical floral set called Hello Sunshine. Check it out!
If you're thinking "Her watercoloring is terrible. It's not even inside the lines!" let me stop you right there because it was intentional.
I very, very loosely watercolored the flowers after stamping them onto watercolor paper. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush to fill in the images. Let me add that letting go of control and allowing myself to be more free with the coloring was not easy. I am usually very meticulous.
However, I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone because I like the end result. I would be remiss if I didn't give credit to Margaret Berg, who designed this gorgeous illustration called Pastel Florals.

I'd like to challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Then enter it into the challenge for the chance to win a $50 gift card to Simon Says Stamp.
