Hi there! Today, Altenew is releasing a new installment in their Paint A Flower line: Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Josephine. We are celebrating with a blog hop and giveaways! You should have arrived here from Carol Hintermeier, and your next stop is Karen Brown, or you can start back at the beginning of the hop at the Altenew Card Blog. This pretty set features a large bouquet, perfect for your choice of coloring medium!
These beautiful stamps are such a fun addition to your floral collection. You can always subscribe to receive them automatically each month! I have a colorful watercolored project for you today, so let’s get started with the details.
I began by stamping the gorgeous florals from Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Josephine a few times around the edge of a panel of A2 watercolor paper using white pearl embossing powder to create a lovely, detailed floral border. I used the Spring Garden Watercolor Brush Markers to brush some very diluted color all over the embossed panel. This helps to create a lovely, ethereal background while also making the white embossing stand out even more to make watercoloring the individual images a bit simpler.
After watercoloring the flowers with more concentrated color, I allowed the panel to dry completely before splattering some silver metallic paint from the Metallic Watercolor Pan Set. I trimmed the finished panel down slightly and matted it on a full A2 panel of pretty cornflower blue cardstock to coordinate with the blue in the watercolored background.
I die cut a “happy” from some sparkling white cardstock using the Inline Alpha dies. I stacked the letters up on the blank portion of the watercolor card front, then added a white embossed greeting on a strip of the same blue cardstock as the mat, popped up using some Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Finally, I added a few iridescent gems to add a touch of sparkle and extra texture to the background.
Well, that’s all for my project today! Now, Altenew has some fun giveaways to celebrate the newest release:
$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners!

Absolutely stunning💖 Thank you so much for the tip about commenting. I have stopped going through hops other than IG ones because I have to spend so much frustrating time trying to figure out how to comment including the Altenew blog. And most of the time unsuccessfully. I wonder if it is my android phone? You are so talented.
