Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica & Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

22 July 2020



Welcome to the July 2020 Paint-a-flower Release Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Virginia Lu 's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog .


Today Altenew is releasing the PAF Japonica and new Watercolor Brush Marker (Autumn Festival Set). I love the Watercolor Brush Markers and these colours will complement my collection even more. Using them with the Paint-a-Flower sets making colouring super easy.
For today's hop, I created I colourful card by stamping the floral image in full at the bottom of the card base and part of it at the top. 

I added in colour with the markers and blended it out with a watercolour brush and water. It is super easy and really fun to do.

I really didn't want to overthink the process and went with quick colouring and blending. To finish off the card I added three yellow enamel dots which pick up the colour in the centres of the flowers.
