Altenew in August

 Spending time with Altenew this month.

Die Cut Divas challenge for the month of August is "watercolor real or faux".
"Watercolor real or faux" includes splattering of water on distress inked panels, application of a water spritzed stencil to pull up distress inks from a distress inked panel and smooshed backgrounds, so there's lots of techniques you can go with for watercolor real or faux.

I actually tried water-coloring. It's not too bad for a beginner; it could be better; not bad. LOL I made a mini-slimline card because the water stamp is narrow and it works great for a mini-slimline card. I chose a dark blue folder to die-cut a panel surrounding the scene, which really pops the entire scene, making the card feel crisp and clean.
