Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)
Today I am honored to be part of the Altenew Build-a-Flower Lotus release blog hop.
There's a gorgeous new Paint-A-Flower released today; the Lotus. This set has a large lotus image under and over the water line and several lovely sentiments. But first thank you Teresa for relaying hoppers here, and peeps - you can always start hopping at Altenew!
If like me you are not great at coloring, do like I did and use some of the amazing paper from the Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection 6x6 Paper Pack to stamp your image on!
For this first card I stamped the image and one of the sentiments in black pigment ink and heat embossed in clear embossing powder. Then I cut the image down to 4 by 5 1/4 inches and glued down to a standard A2 white card base.
As the image is so beautiful by itself and the background paper provides color, you do not have to color anything in for a beautiful card.
Next I decided to make a brighter card by heat embossing in gold - I used Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder and that turned out lovely but I still felt that I should try to color in the images so I turned to my alcohol markers.
I have the Cosmic Garden Artist Alcohol Markers, set A so I used the pink markers for the flowers and the green markers for the leaves and did extremely simple coloring - I just love how this turned out! So what do you think, which is the card you prefer? Please let me know in the comments below!
Altenew is organizing a giveaway to celebrate this release with $200 in total prizes to commenters on all the stops of this hop, please comment before May 28, 2021 for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on the Altenew Winners Page on May 30, 2021 so good luck to you!

Great color share. I like the idea to use the paper pack. I like the look of the one with the added alcohol marker.ReplyDelete
These are both soooo Beautiful!!!!ReplyDelete
It is a hard call but I think the black outline card edges out the gold one for me. I would have liked to see some added color to the water in the gold edged one.ReplyDelete
I love both. The background on both is breathtaking!!! I love that there is no sentiment on the gold embossed one, it allows the beauty of colors stand out!!!ReplyDelete
Such a great idea to stamp the image on pattern paper! Beautiful! I have a preference for the black embossed card.ReplyDelete
Amazing technique and cards!!! I was very impressed. The colors go so well with each other. I like both cards, but I prefer the first one with the rose gold embossing powder.ReplyDelete
