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

Hello folks.

Today am delighted to be participating in the Altenew Paint-A-Flower Sweet Pea Blog Hop to showcase this pretty new outline Paint-A-Flower stamp set.  We will all be sharing lots of ideas for using the stamps.  There are also details of a fabulous Giveaway.  So, be sure to hop along with us. 

Thank you to Juhi Khanna for directing you here.  Next up is Nancy Souza.  Alternatively you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog.  The full list of blog hop participants can be found below.

For my card today I used watercolour card stock and did a bit of blending, masking, stamping and watercolouring.  My card is 5 x 7 inches.

I began by applying an oval mask to the centre of my watercolour card stock.   Then I blended some crisp dye inks in shades of Citrus Burst, Fresh Lemon, Marigold and Ruby Red from the top of my card to the bottom with my large Altenew blending tools.

Then I lifted some of the colour by flicking some droplets of water across the blended base and dabbing with a paper towel to create some splatters. 

Once the card was completely dry, I removed the oval mask and I using a stamp positioner, I  stamped the large sweetpea outline within the centre of the white oval.  I left the stamp in the stamp positioner.  Then I used a selection of complimentary colours from my Altenew Watercolour Paint 36 Colour Pan Set to colour the petals and leaves.

Once this image was completely dry, I popped it back into the stamp positioner and re-stamped the outline image using Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink.

I used a layer of black card stock to make the top layer really pop and finished by heating embossing the white sentiment onto a piece of black card stock.

I really enjoyed making this card as it combined several different techniques, which was fun.
