Textured Watercolor + Altenew Larkspur Build-A-Flower Blog Hop

Hello creative friends! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to see some inspiration using the new, Larkspur Build-a-Flower stamp set from Altenew!

This stunning set has so many possibilites; from being used as an outline image for coloring, or as a layering set, you can get many looks from this single set. And speaking of looks, I’ll be sharing a loose, textured watercolor effect that I created with the stamps in this Larkspur set!

I used Prima Watercolors to color in the florals, and added a sentiment that is also from the Larkspur stamp set. I feel that seeing is easier than reading, so I’m saving all the details about this card in the video. I hope you will watch it to to see how everything came together!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll see you again very soon!

    I love how bold you are with colors. I’ve gotten so scared of making mud that I tend to be very conservative with my color choices; I wouldn’t have thought to do bright splashy oranges with those greens, but I love how yours turned out. That is definitely today’s lesson: be bold with colors! Thanks for sharing your card and your process with us. It helps me to be able to have a bit of a roadmap as I try to venture into crafty parts unknown. :D
