Tuesday with Toni - Altenew Forever in Love

This is a banner year for me--I actually remembered our anniversary ahead of time AND did something about it.  Yay, me!

I stamped the Altenew Forever in Love image onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper using Versafine Onyx Black.

I hadn't played with my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors in a coon's age so I used those along with a Zig Watercolor H2O Detail Brush.  I used colors #36, #33, #53, and #10.

I had recently used Prismacolor colored pencils with Copics so thought I would use them with watercolors and see what happened. Umm, wow. I love the added texture (both visual and tactile).

The pencils allowed me to add lots of depth to the blooms without muddy watercolors. Swoon! I can only imagine how fantastic using Derwent Inktense pencils would be.

As you can see, I used the pencils for the background as well.

For the sentiment, I die cut the white panel using Avery Elle Dotted Borders. After stamping the Altenew Forever in Love sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black, I decided the panel needed a little pizzaz so I added a strip of Altenew Golden Trim Washi along the bottom.  Insert dreamy sigh.
