All the details on these easy to use Woodless Watercolor Pencils and how to create this fun rainbow sunflower card are in this short cardmaking video tutorial. Watch it here or in HD on YouTube. While you’re there I’d love it if you like, subscribe, and share it with your crafty friends.
Easy to Use Woodless Watercolor Pencils
The quality of these Woodless Watercolor Pencils is immediately evident by their weight. It’s a hefty little package and the weight of each pencil feels as if you’re holding a perfectly balanced high-quality piece of flatware.
As always Altenew has picked a beautiful range of colors to represent the full spectrum of the rainbow and earth tones. In my video, I swatch the colors. However, you can also access the swatch image below and a black swatch template on the Altenew product page.
Shipping delays have left us with a limited quantity of Woodless Watercolor Pencil sets for the release. If these little lovelies sell out before you get your hands on them, please sign up for the “Back In Stock” notification email. These will be restocked around 11/11/20.
Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Sunflower
Check out the beautifully arranged Paint-A-Flower: Sunflower Stamp Set! I chose a slimline design so I could stack two of these sunflower arrangements. I didn’t use any masking and did have an oops moment, but was able to cover it up pretty well.
Before I started my slimline card, I swatched out all the colors. So many beautifully vibrant and saturated colors! Three of the colors were lightly pigmented as you would expect based on their coordinating ink pad: Coral Bliss, Mountain Mist, and Dew Drop. Altenew excels at color coordinating their mediums (or is it media?).
So, if you want Artist Marker, Woodless Watercolor Pencils, ink blending, and colored cardstock all on the same card you can make it matchy-matchy.
I think I used almost all the colors on this one card, including Oolong Tea, and I love it! These Woodless Watercolor Pencils blend effortlessly. Be sure to watch the video for tips and tricks.
Plus, big news, Jet Black Woodless Watercolor Pencil splatter is replacing my tried and true Jet Black Ink Spray splatter! Can you believe it?!
