Happy Monday! I am overly excited about today’s project because I finally got to play with a highly, highly anticipated watercoloring medium from Altenew!

Altenew came out with an oh-so-lovely metallic watercolor pan set that everyone needs to have in their coloring medium collection. The pigments are amazingly intense, and the colors are beautifully coordinated. They are also creamy and opaque, lovely to work with on various projects.

I had so much fun creating today’s card and cannot wait to share the details!

Let’s start with a full step-by-step video tutorial. I explain what I did to color in the above images with the metallic watercolor set.


This is not really a hard project to create, just need to take some time to color in those outlined images with a fine watercolor brush. I highly suggest giving it a try, especially when you need some time to relax and focus on creating something that brings you joy.

Here are some closed up project photos:
