Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Calla Lily Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

22 August 2020



 
Welcome to the Paint A Flower Calla Lily Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Kelly Griglione's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.


The Paint-A-Flower Sets are probably my favourites as they have really pushed me out of my comfort zone when it comes to colouring whether is be watercolours or markers.



This time I decided to use the Altenew Artist Markers to colour the image. I kept it simple with greens and purples. 
For added detail, I coloured in some shadowing. I'm really starting to get the hang of colouring with the artist markers even though it still scares me. 
To balance out the card, I added a thin strip of purple cardstock. A super simple card but such fun to make. 


Prizes:
