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’m giving away a prize pack of stamps and dies valued at over $50. Leave a comment below telling me about your crafty wishlist. I’ll announce one lucky winner on Friday, July 21st.
