Video: Messy Watercolor Layout using Floral Art Stamp Set

by Zinia

Hello, Altenew fans!

It’s Zinia here with another bright and fun scrapbook layout idea. For this design, I’m using one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets, Floral Art. I really love the abstract and artsy look of this stamp set so I decided to take it to the next level by pairing it with some messy coloring using the new Watercolor 36 Pan Set.

I knew I was going to add watercolors on top so I wanted to make sure I used a waterproof ink. I used the medium watercolor palette to smoosh some inks and water them down so I can use them as watercolors. I added a very light layer of watered-down inks just as a base. Then I pulled my Watercolor 36 Pan Set to build up more layers.

I stamped the images in a light gray color on top of the white cardstock and with Coral Bliss Crisp Dye ink on top of the coral piece.

Absolutely stunning page! Love the ‘messy’ watercolors, and that coral pop and ghosted leaves make it pop. Hope that stamp set comes back in stock soon!
