Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: CAMELIA OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Laura Jane's blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience-.
Today we are welcoming the newest member of the PAF family. The new PAINT-A-FLOWER: CAMELLIA is simply gorgeous. The design is delicate and detailed, which makes it the perfect flower to color in with your favorite medium. Let me show you what I created with it:
I made a card!!! I truly love the design of this month's PAF: CAMELLIA, and had some ideas on how to color it; however, I had just finished working on some documenting and had my Altenew Fine Liner pens at hand, so I decided to color them with black ink.
Since we were little, my mom always gave us pen and paper to play with, especially when we were on the phone. I love to doodle on pads, and use points to create shadows, etc. So, I am using the same idea to detail the card.
It all started with the finer pen, slowly adding dots around the edge of each of the petals and leaves. Along the way, I switch to the medium tip to shade in large areas, but always using dots. The process is so relaxing, but does take quite a bit of time- time well spent in my book!-.
Once I was happy with the shading, and before I cover the entire image, I fussy cut it from the cardstock ( Neenah 110lb Solar Crest white cardstock). I used the Ink Blending tool, and some Lapis Lazuli ink to create the background. Then, added the sentiment from the stamp set to the top corner of the panel. A bit of foam adhesive add dimension to the card, then a few sequin and gems add a bit of sparkle.
Just love how it turned out, but I am still finding the areas that I missed coloring with my liner! Remember you can receive your PAINT-A-FLOWER: CAMELLIA as part of the monthly subscription program. Check all the details here:
