Hi there! Erum here today and I would like to welcome you to Altenew’s new weekly feature – Creative Coloring with Erum! In this regular feature, you can expect different coloring techniques, tips, and tricks – from yours truly. I hope to inspire you to practice your coloring skill!
Today, I am kicking this off with a floral card featuring the Floral Art Stamp Set. I will be watercoloring using the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.
I started by stamping the flower from the Floral Art Stamp Set onto watercolor paper with a water-reactive ink. Next, I applied water onto the petal and added Cotton Candy Watercolor. I also mixed Cotton Candy and Citrus Burst Watercolor to make a slightly warmer shade of pink.
After I was done with the flower, I stamped the leaves by watercoloring on them with Frayed Leaf Watercolor. Then I used Bamboo, Forest Glades, and Evergreen to add details to the leaves.
To show that there is more greenery in the far-off distance, I added some stippling. After this, I added splatters of Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf Watercolors. After the splatters were dry, I stamped the sentiment from Smiles and Hugs Stamp Set. And then I added a few black paint splatters to the sentiment.
You can watch the coloring process below or on YouTube.

That is all for today. I hope you like the card!
