Hey, hi friends! I’m happy to be joining Altenew for a blog hop today to showcase the January Paint-A-Flower Camellia Waterhouse set!

Although the two cards look quite different from one another, the supplies and techniques are similar.
Let’s take a look!
For my first card, I stamped the design onto watercolor paper with embossing ink and heat set with silver embossing powder. I used both the Watercolor 36 Pan set and the Watercolor 24 Pan set to paint the flowers and leaves with a random palette of colors, pulling color over the lines without care.
I combined two of the sentiment stamps to create the greeting on a strip of gray cardstock and trimmed it with a fishtail. Then I finished the card with some splatters and gemstones.
For the second card, I realigned the stamp to a different position on an A2 card base and stamped with black ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. This time I used the Altenew Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan set to paint the arrangement, using the most subtle shades in the set.
Once the paint and splatter was dry, I hand cut the bottom portion of the design and popped it up with Instant Dimension foam tape.
I combined another two of the sentiments included in the Camellia Waterhouse stamp set to create the greeting on the gray cardstock that I chose to mat the stamped design with. Once again, some coordinating gem stones complete the card.
