Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)


Hi there!
Welcome to ALTENEW PAINT-A-FLOWER: LOTUS OUTLINE STAMP SET RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.  You are arriving from Erum's blog ( her work is always amazing!).  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today,  Altenew is releasing this month's new PAINT-A-FLOWER: LOTUS, and I love this new stamp set.   The amazing detail in the design ( there is an underwater view of the flower!!!) is just perfect for your choice of coloring method.  Let me show you what I created...  and I made a card!

I stamped the image on two white heavy cardstock panels with Obsidian  ink.   I trimmed both panels to about 5x7", and chose to glue one to a blue-gray pre made card base.

The other PAF LOTUS stamped panel, I colored using Altenew Artists Watercolor pan set, and the round Watercolor Brush set.   I just took my time relaxing and coloring away.  While color dried,  I used the stamp set to create my sentiment, and trimmed it to a small strip.

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the  colored panel, and attached it with Altenew's Instant Dimensional.  I made sure that the images matched so you can see the dimension and change in coloration.   Then added the small sentiment strip atop the colored image.

I added small clear drops at the bottom of the colored card as a finishing touch.    Just love how this turned out, and how relaxing it was to color the new Paint-A-Flower: LOTUS.
