August Inspiration with Altenew in Pink!

Good day!

Every month Altenew has an inspirational challenge, with adjoining colours that you can choose to use - or not - and I decided to join in the fun.

This month it is all about the pinks and grays... lovely!

Using Versafine Black Onyx ink, I stamped the Sketchy Rose onto watercolour cardstock, followed by the stem and the sweet rosebud. Using my Gansai Tambi Watercolours, - I bought my paint set on Amazon - I painted up this beautiful rose.

I added a bit of gray watercolouring around the rose and tucked in the sentiment alongside the rose.

After it dried (completely) I added some Sparkling Clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins for a beautiful effect!.

I adhered a pink strip of cardstock to the edge of the watercolour and popped it up onto Softstone patterned paper - and then onto my Soft Stone card base.

This challenge ends on August 31st so you still have lots of time to enter!


  1. Your rose and your card are both stunning!

  2. Your watercolour gets better and better all the time. This is lovely!

  3. This is an incredible card - the watercoloring on this rose is truly STUNNING! Fantastic job!
