Altenew | New Dual Tip Pens

Hello there, have you seen that Altenew have released three new sets of Dual Tip Pens? These pens are water based and have a fine tip on one end and a brush tip on the other, so great for different applications. I am using the pens today to watercolour the beautiful Gracious Peonies set. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by stamping the peonies image from Altenew Gracious Peonies Stamp Set on to Altenew Watercolor Paper using Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. I then coloured the image with the new pens. 

I first applied Rubellite to the flower petals from the Altenew Tahitian Terrace Dual Tip Pens Set and then using an Altenew Fine Watercolor Brush, blended the colour using water. For the other colours, I applied some of the colour from the pen onto an acrylic block and then picked it up with the paint brush to paint the image. I used Fuchsia from the Altenew Islands of Fiji Dual Tip Pens Set, Baby Pink from Altenew Zanzibar Dual Tip Pens Set and finished with Pink Pearl from the Tahitian Terrace Set. 

For the leaves, I used Emerald, Grass Field and Bamboo, all from the Altenew Islands of Fiji Dual Tip Pens Set. The image was then die cut using the Altenew Gracious Peonies Die Set and adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set on to black cardstock and heat embossed in white. They were cut into a strips and adhered to the card. To finish off, I added a few (now retired, sorry) sequins.

These are really beautiful pens to use. They blend easily with water, whether you apply them directly to the paper, or use an acrylic block like I did. I love the colour selection in the sets too! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I very much appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!
