Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Tulips Outline Stamp Set & More Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Paint-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Paint-A-Flower Tulip Outlines with a blog hop!
 
If you arrive from the blog of  the talented Mindy Eggen, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. See Altenew Card Blog for details.

This is one easy and fun stamp to color! I decided to go for bright and happy colors

Altenew-PAF-Tulips-GoldStream Washi Tape-Artist Woodless Watercolor Pencils 24 Pan Set

TIP: Before coloring, I like to stamp the image with Vanilla Cream first. This gives me a faint but clear outline for coloring. I can always re-stamp it later with the help of MISTI.

It didn't take long for me to color the images. I was having too much fun, so I decided to color the background as well.

I kept the embellishments to minimum....but it was still lacking something.

Not only it was easy to add Washi, it also added a touch of shine without distracting the overall design. I also adore the sentiment.... it's so artsy and pretty! I highly recommend the new Woodless Watercolor Pencils and Artist Watercolor 24 Pan Set (all linked below)

Virginia, the new set and your card are so gorgeous! But I'm SO interested in this eraser! The pens would have been even better if filled with erasable ink!
