Hey hi! Thank you for joining us today for the Altenew blog hop celebrating the release of the Paint-A-Flower Calla Lily! You should be arriving here from Kelly Latevola’s blog, but if you’ve happened here by chance, you can click back to the start of the hop at the Altenew Card Blog.
We have another beautiful floral image for this month’s Paint-A-Flower subscription and I had so much fun coloring it with Watercolor Brush markers! Oddly, I had the impression that Calla Lilies were a white flower exclusively, but it turns out they come in all the colors, so I happily chose to color mine bright pink!
I stamped on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock, because I knew I wanted to us Watercolor Brush markers to color, and they LOVE the smooth cardstock for color blending. I stamped with Obsidian Black ink and heat set with clear embossing powder to help the blending colors stay put in their various sections.
Once the flowers were painted and dry, I fussy cut the right hand side, using a sharp craft knife to cut out the interior sections. Then I matched the stamped and painted image with some patterned paper in my stash and adhered them to a folded card base.
The sentiments are two of a variety of options that come in the stamp set and I stamped them with Obsidian Black ink and heat embossed them too. I opted not to add any more embellishments, but to let the flowers have all the impact.
