Hello and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor Brush Marker Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new Tropical Fiesta Set.  If you arrived here from the talented Maria Willis blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my wooden clipboard scrapbook panel:

Tropical Fiesta

I saw this cute clipboard at AC Moore and figured I would try using these watercolor markers on them.

I love how this design turned out. Not to hard and with just the right about of ink, the flowers turned out nicely.

Let’s take a closer look:

I stamped the Rennie Roses image using black ink and with little watercolor ink, colored the image in using the watercolor markers.

Rennie Roses

Take your time, if you go to close to the line the watercolor might bleed out of the lines, especially with the red color.

Tropical Fiesta

Once the ink is dry, stamp the sentiment “hello” from the Watercolor Dots stamp set.

Pick an image to display and your done!!

  4. Heat set the watercolor.
