I was in a coloring mood and these flowers are so fun to color! I used Altenew\’s Artist Markers Set F (Sunshine Valley Garden) and Set G (Water Garden). The kit has a bunch of wonderful sentiments and I selected Be Bold…
I am pleased with the card and hope you like it too.
Altenew Clematis Paint-A-Flower
Hello and welcome to the blog hop for the February release of the Altenew Paint-A-Flower series and Artists Marker Sets F & G. This month\’s Clematis stamp is GORGEOUS and so fun to create with. Altenew releases a new Paint-A-Flower each month and you can subscribe HERE so you don\’t miss a single set.
I spent an enjoyable and relaxing Sunday afternoon painting this beauty. When my kit arrived, I saw soft blues as I started planning my card. For the flowers, I used pale blue with soft lavendar shadows and pink highlights. I kept with the muted look by adding pale green leaves and the fencing was painted with watery yellow and tan. I added a hint of grey to the background and called it done. I used watercolor markers for a fresh bright watercolor look.
This is an interesting floral stamp as you can use it both vertically and horizontally. I added my favorite Painted Grid Washi Tape along two sides and the included sentiment \”Life Is Beautiful\”. I finished the card off with a couple of pearl grey New Day Enamel Dots. A fresh and lovely spring card.
Altenew F and G Artist Alcohol Markers
Water Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set G
Altenew is also releasing two new sets of Artists Markers and I thought it would be fun to try them out by coloring the same image with both sets. Weekend Doodles
is one of my all time favorites sets so I decided to use it for both cards. Water Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set G
is full of lovely aquas, lavenders and browns. I wanted the flowers to be the star of this card so I used the Cross Stitch Canvas Cover Die
to create a clean and simple background that adds a bit of texture and interest but keeps the focus on the floral elements.
Such lovely colors in this marker set!
Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F
Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Markers SET \”F\” is full of beautiful pinks, yellows and greens. For this card I wanted a coordinating background, so using my 36 pan watercolors, I painted pink (which I toned down with some green) on a watercolor panel and let dry. I then embossed the panel with the Modern Squares 3D folder , which gives beautiful dimension to your backdrop. This folder is one of my new “go to” backgrounds. I added some pink, purple and black spatters because I thought the panel looked too sweet.
The Tea Party Enamel Dots coordinate beautifully with this set of markers.
