Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Himalayan Poppy Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)

 Hello friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Paint-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Paint-A-Flower Himalayan Poppy with a blog hop!


Come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

For my design, I took a watercolor approach with the Hawaiian Shores Brush and Fine Tips
 This is such a great set of great value (only $10.99)!

Altenew offers so much coloring medium. This time the Woodless Coloring Pencils are part of the release. I had tried them with other projects and they are awesome!

With all the coloring, you definitely need good watercolor cardstock. Don't forget to check the paper that you use for water-coloring.

 I find that with good watercolor paper (such as this), any novice can achieve very decent results.

These coloring pencils are superb and I really enjoyed using them. The colors are vibrant and easy to blend. As you can see in this Mini Delight Amaryallis, I blended a few colors in one flower and the colors are simply outstanding.
