Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Daffodil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

22 June 2020



Welcome to the Paint-A-Flower Daffodil Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Ashlea Cornell's 's blog you are right on track. 

Today's PAF is the Daffodil. It is part of Altenew's Paint-A-flower collection. These sets are perfect for crafting and if you love colouring they are right up your alley.

When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in our monthly PAF releases and will receive a set each month - at a specially discounted price! ($15.99 →$12.99)



For today's release I went for a slightly different take on watercolouring. I picked out a lovely green cardstock and embossed one of the floral image with Altenew White Embossing Powder. Then I used the Altenew Metallic Watercolours to colour the images. 


I love how sparkly the images are. 


Stamping two images in opposite corners is a great way of getting a balanced card.
