Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



I'm so happy to be a part of the second blog hop in celebration of a new product line from Altenew, the Paint-a-Flower series! You may have come from the blog of  Svitlana Shayevich but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew blog.   
Paint-a-Flower: Rose

This set is the Paint-a-Flower: Rose and it's a gorgeous floral outline set with some beautiful sentiments as a bonus.


Here I've stamped the long floral strip going across the top of the card, and then stamped the single rose cluster going down the middle of the card. Having two distinct floral clusters really lets you have a lot of flexibility with how you want your finished design to fill the space. I think it looks like it could be one floral stamp on this card.


To color these gorgeous  roses I used the Altenew watercolors, and then like Kathy Racoosin says, got into the nooks and crannies with colored pencils. This is still quite a learning process for me, so I was quick to sign up for my friend Emily's new Artists Watercolor 101 for Paper Crafters class! Such great timing, as this class is actually going on right now!! Of course, you can watch the videos at any time once you buy it, but if you enroll now you get a chance to ask Emily questions each day, as well as win some prizes.


I added a few gold spatters, as well as a few sequins.


Finally, I love the mix of fonts on the sentiments in this set! To accentuate this, I chose to stamp the scripted portion of the sentiment in a coordinating color.
