Hi there! Altenew is releasing a new Paint A Flower set, and some new shades in the Artist Markers line, so we are celebrating with a blog hop! You should have arrived here from Vicky Papaioannou, and your next stop is Jenny Colacicco. You can also go back to the Altenew Card Blog to start at the beginning of the hop.
Each month, Altenew releases a new floral stamp set perfect for coloring (you can subscribe here for a discounted rate each month!) This month’s new Paint A Flower: Clematis set is so beautiful, and features clematis blooms climbing up a trellis.
To start, I heat embossed the lovely main image from Paint A Flower: Clematis onto some of Altenew’s watercolor paper using some white pearl embossing powder. I watercolored the image using the Artists’ Watercolor 24 Pan set, keeping things light and not fussing too much (as is my normal wont, haha).
I trimmed the panel down and matted it on a very, very slightly larger piece of periwinkle blue cardstock to help make the periwinkle in the watercolored panel pop. I white embossed a greeting from Sentiment Strips 2 on a strip of the same periwinkle cardstock, then adhered it to the watercolored panel.
I mounted the entire thing on an A2 panel of pale lavender cardstock using foam adhesive, then added a few gems for some sparkle!
Altenew has two new sets of alcohol markers releasing today, as well: Sunshine Valley and Water Garden. Both sets contain companion colors to some of my absolute favorite shades in the Dye Ink line, so I was quite excited to use these!
I began by stamping the Forever In Love onto a panel of white cardstock using Permanent Crisp Black Ink. I used markers from both Sunshine Valley and Water Garden to add color to the beautiful rose swag.
After I’d finished coloring the image, I used Wisteria Ink and a mini blending brush to add some very subtle color around the edges of the colored panel, allowing the white to remain untouched around the image to create a kind of halo around it. I added a white embossed sentiment from Forever In Love on a strip of black cardstock, which I adhered using foam adhesive. Finally, I finished the card off with a few black gems scattered amongst the floral swag.
Well, that’s all for my projects today! As always, Altenew has some splendid giveaways to celebrate their newest release:
