Welcome, Spider Mum, to the Altenew Paint-A-Flower family. This newest edition to the monthly release contains two delicately leaved flowers attached with one stem and a bunch of leaves. If you are hopping along you have just come from the amazingly prolific Terri Koszler and this is your last stop on the hop. You can check out the Altenew Card Blog for more information. Thank you for hopping along and I hope you catch some inspiration from the amazing talent from the Altenew designers.
When I first have a stamp set like the Paint-A-Flower, I first stamp it in Altenew Obsidian black ink. I then try embossing powder. I like to use: clear, white or gold. I then stamp it in a light ink for no line watercoloring. Today, I have three examples of this spider mum in each of these outlines. I made a cute set of all occasion note cards that will really brighten someone's day.
For each card, I stamped the PAF spider mum image onto watercolor cardstock. I used the Altenew artist watercolor pan set to color. I first laid down some water and then added in paint, building up layers of color. I cut down the panel to a smaller size. On a wide folding A2 card base, I stamped One Day at a Time background using Pink Diamond ink. A strip of Emerald Gold Washi helped to add interest and hide the transition between the background stamped panels. I added sequins for some added sparkle. I did not add a sentiment on because these looked cute as an all occasion notecard set.
