Hello and welcome to the Altenew PAF Dahlia Bright Eyes hop. I love Dahlias because of how many different color combinations they come in and what huge blooms they have. If you are hopping along with us you have just come from Virginia Lu. Your next stop is Bridget Casey.
Today for my two projects, I played with different coloring mediums. Let me know in the comments below if you have a favorite coloring medium.
Altenew Woodless Coloring Pencils
Altenew just came out with Woodless Coloring Pencils. I have to admit, I am loving working with these pencils. The blend, the vibrant colors...I do not feel like I have to work very hard when coloring my image. When I start coloring a floral image, I start with the leaves. When I was coloring this image, I liked all the green and yellow tones so I decided to color the petals the same. Spicy Yogurt cardstock is a wonderful complement when using the Woodless Coloring Pencils. There is enough color in the paper to help your image stand out, but not too much. I like the speckled background which adds interest to the overall composition.
Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers
I like to watercolor because it is easy and there is a need to let go of control and allow the pigment and water to work. I also like how easy it is to blend different colors when using the Watercolor Brush Markers. The Altenew Artist Brushes are a great complement as well as the Altenew Watercolor paper. I stamped the image in Permanent Black ink before wetting the image with water and then dropping in color. To finish the image, I added some black splatter.
