Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Clematis & Artist Alcohol Markers 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 Build-A-Flower Clematis with a blog hop!
If you arrive from the blog of Terri Koszler, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

This image is not like the other... this time, there is a lattice background in the mix!

Altenew-PAF Clematis-Woodless Watercolor Pencil 24 Set  (2)

I decided to color a small portion of the image and used a heart die.

I used Woodless Color Pencils for this task. They are easy and precise for smaller areas. The NEW Artist Markers will be fantastic for coloring this image as well. At the time of creating this card, I have not received the new Artist Markers, so I used Woodless Color Pencils instead.

  I added a piece of vellum underneath to make the focal point stand out even more.
