AECP: Exploring Watercolor Medium

Hey, Good day to u all. No-line water coloring is a technique many of us love the look of but may not know how to achieve, but there is a way to bulk up our no-line skills without even inking up a stamp. That’s the reason why I choose to take this course by Jennifer Rzasa and Ashlea Cornell. This is a perfect class for those who love watercolors! In this class, we are going to do look deeper into various water coloring mediums you can find at Altenew and learn about how to use them for multiple techniques! This is great for those who are wanting to get more out of their current watercolor supplies and get fresh inspirations! I am also submitting this post to the September 2022 Inspiration Challenge. Check out the challenge at


  1. Create a “4 1/4 x 5 1/2 ” card base from Watercolor Cardstock .
  2. Stamp flower from Build-A-Garden: Pristine Peonies in Buttercream Crisp Dye Ink onto Watercolor Cardstock.
  3. Tap the ink pads on a watercolor palate and use a water color brush to color your flowers and leaves.
  4. Pick up pigment from Coral Berry Altenew Crisp Dye Ink and apply it onto the base of the petal.
  5. Next, use clean water to pull the pigment out
  6. Color all the petals in the same way, skipping the adjacent petal and coloring the next until the first one dries.
  7. Apply more pigment to areas where you want to show shadow or depth and less where you want to show highlights.
  8. For the flower center, simply color it with a combination of Buttercream and Coral Bliss
  9. For the leaves use , Parrot Altenew Crisp Dye Ink for the base and Forest Glades Altenew Crisp Dye Ink for highlights
  10. Finally, Draw black strips using black artistic marker and fine liner pens .
  11. To fit the inspiration challenge of September i have added a watercolor layer with Coral Bliss Altenew Crisp Dye Ink adjacent to the black strip.
  12. Stamp the sentiment on the right most corner with jet black ink.
  13. Any embellishments of your choice can be added to enhance the look of the card
