If you arrived here from Jenny Colacicco's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.

The March 2022 Zinnia Magellan Rose Outline Stamp Set features a large outline stamp, which is just perfect to practice botanical watercolor. This ensures that you can also add in a fair amount of detail to each petal for a realistic look.

To create my card, I started by trimming Watercolor Paper to 4″ x 5.25″ and stamped the Zinnia Magellan Rose Outline Stamp onto the panel with Obsidian Ink. I stamped the image on the left-hand corner of the panel and then masked off the other half of the flower with Masking Paper. Then, I taped the Stone Wall Stencil Stencil in the centre of the panel and applied Dew Drops Ink lightly to the piece with a blending brush. I then flicked some black paint on my panel using a paint brush to fill in the empty spaces around the blooms. Once that was done, I colored the entire image with red, green, and coral watercolors from my Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set using a  Watercolor Brush.

I die cut Onyx  and Mirror Gold Cardstock with the  the 'You' die included in the Dynamic Blossoms Die Set and adhered the gold piece to the back of the black piece as a shadow layer with Craft Glue. Then, I stamped the accompanying sentiment onto a strip of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using Obsidian Ink and popped it up on my panel using foam squares.

Then, to finish, I adhered my card panel to a top-folding A2- white card base using White Foam and tape runner. I completed the design with some sparkling Antique Gold - Sequins to embellish.
