Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

by Lilith Eeckels

Welcome to the Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop. Have you just hopped over from Debby Hughes's blog? Well, you're right on track. You can always start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

I think many of us were waiting for this: Altenew watercolor paints. The cherry on the cake is that they match perfectly with the Altenew inks which means you can mix and match them in your projects.

Product Description:

This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented and fade minimally when drying. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing.


36 Watercolor Half-Pans (colors listed below)

Plastic Case

Water Brush

Pink Diamond     Forest Glades         Evergreen            Paper Bag

Puffy Heart          Frayed Leaf            Mountain Mist      Mocha

Purple Wine        Bamboo                  Lagoon                 Espresso

Cosmic Berry      Citrus Burst             Emerald               Industrial Diamond

Cotton Candy      Fresh Lemon          Ocean Waves      Moon Rock

Coral Berry          Warm Sunshine      Dusk                    Jet Black

Rubellite              Sunkissed               Desert Night        Lavender Fields

Grapevine           Orange Cream        Caribbean Sky     Deep Iris

Crimson               Autumn Blaze         Persian Blue        Midnight Violet

I created two projects with the set. One can be admired here and you can see the second one in my blog.

@lilitheeckelsFor this project, I used a resist technique. I stamped a couple of shapes from the Geometrical Flowers Stamp Set using embossing ink and white embossing powder, which I heat set. Then I added some color using the watercolors.

@lilitheeckelsA couple of cut-out butterflies and hearts add detail and flow to the layout. I popped them onto some enamel dots for extra dimension.

@lilitheeckelsFor the title, I opted to use the chipboard word from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.


@lilitheeckelsYou can see how the whole layout came together in the video below. Or watch it on YouTube in HD. 


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners!

Such a pretty layout and fabulous watercolor set!

Laurence Tremblay August 10, 2018 - 8:00 pm

Love the new watercolor set. I would feel privileged to win it, not just for me but for the people I help with my art therapy group who are healing through art and card making. I would do everything to get one for our group at the local battered women’s shelter that I volunteer at and created over 4 yrs ago and because it’s non profit they don’t have money for the supply so I’ve been buying it all those years with the help of few guardian angels who’ve bought and donated material for the art therapy group. If I don’t win, would you contact me for a small supply donation, no money ever, just supply.

Laurence Tremblay August 10, 2018 - 8:04 pm

Btw, I adore what you’re doing with these cards. I can see myself bringing this project of card with watercolor paint to my group and maybe try another version by doing white heat embossing and do watercolor after. Love your projects and ideas.

Water coloring looks like the perfect way to decorate a scrapbook page without overwhelming the photos. Just gorgeous in every way!

stampnk August 11, 2018 - 2:48 am

The water color painting on this layout is so delicate and really adds to your page. Altenew stamps are already a favorite and now that you have water color paints, I’m even a bigger fan!

stampnk August 11, 2018 - 2:55 am

How lovely that Altenew not only makes stamps and dies, but now has scrapbook supplies and water colors! You always inspire me to continue creating.

stampnk August 11, 2018 - 3:26 am

I love that your designer went ahead and used pastels and butterflies on a layout with boys. The page looks bright and spring-like! Thank you for inspiring scrapbookers to stamp on layouts as well as on cards.

Lovely scrapbook page your boys will enjoy looking at in the years ahead. My boys (45) are best friends also. These watercolour paints look exceptional in that you are able to achieve such rich, creamy colours with them. I’d love to own them.
