Altenew | Paint-A-Flower Clematis & Artist Alcohol Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Altenew today to celebrate the release of the new Paint-A-Flower Clematis Stamp Set plus new Artist Alcohol Markers too. Sadly, I wasn't able to receive the alcohol markers in time, so my project today features the Paint-A-Flower Clematis set using older alcohol marker colours, but please see below to take a look at the new sets. 

We are celebrating the release with a fun, inspiration filled blog hop. More info on that below. 

I started off my card by stamping the Altenew Paint-A-Flower Clematis Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured the image using Altenew Artist Markers (I did use some other alcohol markers to fill in the colour gaps where I do not have the Altenew ones). The colours that I used are listed below the supplies area. I then cut the image out using the Altenew Halftone Circles Nesting Die Set

I took an A2 white card base and embossed the next largest circle from the die set on to the front. I added strips of black cardstock across and then added the image piece on top with foam tape. To finish off, I stamped the sentiment from the set below the image with more black ink. 

As mentioned, unfortunately I wasn't able to play with the new Altenew Artist Marker Sets today but there are two new ones being released - Sunshine Valley Garden (Set F) and Water Garden (Set G). These colours are so pretty and would work well with lots of different images. I especially love the look of those purples!
