Altenew: Birthday Card using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens + Giveaway

by May Park-

Hi, crafty friends! Today I have a cute, colorful watercolor card that I created with the Cake Love stamp set from Altenew. This time I brought my stamped background to the next level by stamping several words on the background and adding black dots between the images.

I started by stamping the images from the Cake Love stamp set with Hero Arts intense black ink on a A2 size Strathmore watercolor paper. Then I stamped the words from the Layered Letters AFG stamp set and the holly berries images from the Vintage Teacup stamp set to fill in the gap.

Next, I colored my images with ZIG Clean Color Real brush pens using Tim Holtz water brush. I didn’t put too much effort on coloring/shading but just let the water do most of the work.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiments & Quotes stamp set with watermark ink, heat embossed with Pure White Crisp embossing powder on a piece of black cardstock, and mounted my sentiment banner on the card front using 3M foam tape.

I finished off my card by adding some black dots between the images using a black marker from the Artist Markers Set A. If you are following me, you may already know that I’m kind of obsessed with black dots lately. Haha!

    I am fairly new to the amazing world of stamping but have been making cards and invitations for many years. I have amassed quite a collection in the last month or two, yikes. I started out by making lists of what I felt were “essentials” to truly get started. I had a page for each category like tools (misti, die cutting machine, etc), inks, stamp and die sets, paper, etc. Then I watched my list continue to grow as I’d find blogs like yours and seeing all the talented designers and the amazing things they would create. So in summary, it’s impossible for me to narrow down my always growing wish list. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent to a newbie like me!
