We are excited to be celebrating Altenew’s second anniversary by participating in their fabulous blog hop! Using both Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and Altenew products, our Designer Lisa Adametz created this wonderful Be A Voice watercolor card. Congratulations to our friends at Altenew!!
Be A Voice Card
This card started of as a small 4 x 4″ piece of watercolor cardstock. I simply added some beautiful blends of watercolor and allowed them to flow. Using Pigment Powders in Wine, Gold, and Blue and mixing a bit of water with the pigment powders I then brushed the colors over areas I wished to add a bit of shimmer and shine.
After allowing the watercolor to dry, a few of the stamps from the Altenew set, Botanical Garden, were stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed in gold embossing powder. I also used colored pencils to add definition and contrast to the images.
Using the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini, I was then able to adhere 4mm Droplets to the watercolor piece. These tiny little adhesive dots are so perfect for your small sequins and dew drops, etc. You’ll never know they’re there!
The Be a Voice sentiment was stamped using an archival ink from the Altenew set, Painted Inspiration. Next, I rounded corners of the panel and then placed 3D Foam Squares Black Regular on the back side.
Now cut a piece of 8.5 x 11″ Kraft cardstock to make a 4¼ x 5½” base card that is scored on the vertical edge. Cut a piece of patterned paper 1/8″ smaller to fit the front and adhered to the base card using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser. Wrap a piece of organza ribbon around the front of the card and tied tightly in a bow, trimming off the ends. Then a piece of pink twine was wrapped around the center of the organza bow and tied in another bow. All of this is secured from the back using an Adhesive Dot 3D.
The liner papers may now be removed from the 3D Foam Squares and placed onto the card, at a slight angle. And *poof* it’s all done! Watercolor backgrounds with beautiful stamps like these from Altenew are so easy and fun.
