Bird week: Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

If you’ve arrived from Lydia Evans’ blog, you’re on the right track here on the Altenew bloghop! See details including amazing giveaways later in this post.

Altenew Bloghop: Watercolor Parrot Paradise

Welcome to my stop on the hop!  I decided to take a vacation in paradise on a card, since I don’t have a tropical vacation on my calendar….and took my watercolors with me! I figured out how to paint an easy background on a card like this – you’ll facepalm when you realize how simple it is to do this on cards! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The Parrot Paradise stamp set can be used in tons of other ways too – check out all the shapes of the leaves that can layer beautifully, too:

The ease of painting right over the image really makes painting a card front like this easy!

And the parrot can also be used with your own painting in the background…this video was privately shared with my patrons earlier this week:

And now….those bloghop details!
