Lettering with NEW Altenew Metallic Watercolors

NOTE: This is the first of two posts for today. Check out Day 2 of the Holiday Card Series! :)

Hello, all! Today’s post is part of a blog hop featuring the release of Altenew’s Metallic Watercolor set. Altenew sent me their new paints and I’ve been trying them out!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Leslie! To submit your address for use on future mail art envelopes, please fill out this form. There is a new form each month to keep addresses current.

I first tested the watercolors on black cardstock, then tried some lettering. Eventually, I created a mail art envelope as well!

I absolutely loved these paints! Be sure to watch my video to see swatches and hear my thoughts on these metallic paints. You can pick up this watercolor set at Altenew.
