Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey friends! I am honoured to be participating with Altenew New Build-a-flower Blog Hop!

I am always thrilled when I get to play along with Altenew, nothing makes me happier then when I get to play with watercolours and Altenew ALWAYS offers that opportunity with their floral images.

I embossed the image and the main part of the sentiment with rose gold embossing powder, then painted it up with pink and green. I then decided I wanted less contrast from the background and went in and did a dip dye look with the same pink colour from the floral itself.

Adding the remainder of the sentiment with black ink, I decided to take a black pen and add drop shadows to the embossed part of my sentiment.

Giveaway! $200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 1 lucky winner and a $15 gift certificate to 10 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 01/07/2021 for a chance to win.
