Today is the first time that I have used the Watercolor Paper Set with the Watercolor Brush Markers and you know how fickle brush markers can be…. Altenew have released thenew Paint-A-Flower: Hydrangea and it is stunning, we are hopping along to celebrate the release so you should have arrived here from the LAURAJANE’s amazing Blog!
I usually only use Watercolor Brush Markers on Bristol style cardstock, and was excited to see how they would react with the new Paper Set from Altenew. It’s bright white and smooth… and being watercolor cardstock it will obviously tolerate more ‘water’ than the Bristol. You can check out the results in the video linked below.
I added a some design paper from the Essentials Black & White Paper Pack,
and a die cut Handwritten Hello and subsentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog or the Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win.
We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the THIS POST on 4/30/2020.
Now Let’s Hop!

I love your easy to follow videos. I just recently found your channel and I loved how you organized your stamps by stamping them and putting them in binders. I’ve almost completed organizing mine. I love the paint a flower stamps because you make it easy to watercolor flowers for someone like me with no natural talent. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks so much, I was planning a video on those folders soon, glad to hear that you like them!
Just beautiful Terese. Thank you for sharing your talent. I have enjoyed your videos for many years.
Thanks so much Jody, you are fabulous!!
The colouring was superb and what a special card.Love it Therese….well done
Therese – such a pretty card. Such nice colours together.
Gorgeous hydrangeas! Love the arrangement with the striped patterned paper. The fussy cut border looks amazing flowing into the stripes!
Gorgeous card. I always love your watercoloring. I really like the addition of the striped paper, as well as the fussy cut edge to the card
The partial cut of the flower with the stripes behind it make this card even more special.
Your colors make the flower look so real. Beautiful job!
Love your card design. Your coloring is so eye-catching. Thank you for the inspiration,
Absolutely beautiful coloring!! I always enjoy your videos.
The hydrangeas up against that striped border is stunning. As always, your card is gorgeous.
This is a very stunning card…you have given me an idea on how to use the watercolor markers I haven’t played with yet!
Gorgeous card and beautiful watercoloring! I love the partial die cutting and the black striped paper!
Hi Therese! Thank so much for the inspiration. I love what you did with the hydrangea stamp! Looking forward to watching the video over the weekend!
This is gorgeous and I love the bold black stripes with the flowers. I have some fairly new watercolor markers and this was such a good technique video to get me going on using them.
You make the best videos! I love your “no stress” feel and how you are light hearted with your approach. Your painting was spot-on with the color and I love the graphic pop of the stripes! One gorgeous card, indeed!
Loving the die-cut edge, and every petal of this gorgeous Hydrangea!
As has been said, this is absolutely gorgeous, especially with the addition of the stripes. Thank you for the great video. Makes me think that even I can do it.
Love your fussy cutting, I thought you used a die.
I saw you do another hydrangea with PolyChromos pencils and wrote down the colors because I thought it was so beautiful, Therese. This one is even more so and the stripe is such a great accent along the fancy cut edge.
Beautiful card. Great job.
Therese, thank you so much for the video. I learn so much from those. Your card is gorgeous!
What glorious and heavenly hydrangeas. I love the black and white stripes on the side of the card.
Beautiful! Love your videos and style
Absolutely stunning, the coloring is fabulous, but the drama of using the back stripes is over the top grand!
Such a beautiful card and I love using the flower as a decorative edge!
The Hydrangea is a beautiful flower with a variety of colors.
Gorgeous card!!! I love the look of the mixed colors!!!
Beautiful hydrangea! I love your card with the addition of the stripes on the side, very eye catching!
Beautiful job as always Therese, I love your card, the flowers are so pretty.
Beautiful card Therese. Love the colouring, but particularly impressed by your fussy cutting. Always love your work.
Beautifully coloured. Great card design!
This is so pretty. I like how you shaded the flowers.
So beautiful! The coloring is just amazing! Thanks for the amazing inspiration!
Will definitely CASE this card. Absolutely love it!
Absolutely gorgeous, Therese! And that touch of striped paper along the edge really compliments your design!
Gorgeous flowers, they almost look shimmery to me! I love how the shape of the flowers is cut out on the front of the card.
Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love that beautiful hydrangea! I also love Altenew’s watercolor brush markers and this morning I jumped on the sale for the Spring Garden set! I can’t wait to receive them, but now I need this stamp set AND Altenew’s watercolor paper!
Beautiful! I love the stamp and the way you painted it!
Oh my your colors are just gorgeous for the beautiful hydrangea.
Love the blend of colors on the hydrangea!
Love the colors! Great job.
Awesome job coloring! What an inspired approach to fussy cut the edge of the hydrangeas and then backing with a black striped edging on the inside. I have come to look forward to your videos as I immensely enjoy your upbeat casual style and your the lilting voice. Your laugh is contagious! And I find myself laughing along with you. Thanks for your counsel not to get exercised about mistakes as they usually end up to be brilliant, although unintentional.
Stunning coloring and hydrangeas!! Love the black and white stripes. Fabulous contrast withthe lovely hydrangeas! SO PRETTY! Thanks for sharing and creating!
Can’t get enough of hydrangeas! So pretty with colors you have chosen. Thank you for the ideas of the washi tape background to the fuzzy cut edge. Very attractive?
Love your coloring!
Beeeeeeeeeeeautiful watercolouring Therese. You blended those hydrangea’s so perfectly and so real looking. Love the stripe on the side and how you fussy cut so perfectly also.
Great video of the coloring. I like the tips for the brush use and how best to color in the flowers.
I love your partial die cut and stripped paper just stunning. Thank you for the great video and all the videos you do. I love your work.
I loved this card so much.
This card is amazing! The colors are perfect and I love that you fuzzy cut the edge. So creative.
Really beautiful card! I love hydrangeas!
Love the pretty way you have colored these gorgeous flowers and I am always a fan of B&W stripes against color. Gorgeous!!!
Your card is lovely! I really like the cut edge, and the black and white paper is striking!
I just love the hint of green in with the blues of your hydrangea. Lovely edge detail as well. Gorgeous!
What a beautiful design and such gorgeous hydrangea coloring.
I know how much you love hydrangeas, so I was thrilled with your rendering today. The new card stock from altenew intrigued me. You seemed to have no problems watercolouring with it. Super excited to see how white it seems. Many thanks for the video today.
Very realistic colouring of the hydrangeas, love the black and white patterned paper.
I love the way the blue pops from the black! Gorgeous design!
I love the card and the watercolor brushes!
Your colors are so bold and vibrant. I like the brightness of the hydrangeas against the black and white. Awesome job!
Thanks so much for including the video. Lovely card.
What a beautiful card…gorgeous hydrangeas. Very inspiring…
Thanks for a great video. Love the mix of colours on the petals. So pretty.
That was very easy to watch and thank you for the tips. Love the edge against the black stripe. The flowers are fabulous and remind me of my mom adding vinegar to the soil to change them from blue or pink and usually achieved neither, but a very pretty varigation! Thanks and please be well!
So so pretty! I love the happy colors you used!
Oh wow, this is really beautiful !
Thanks for another informative and entertaining video I could watch you all day long. You make it look so easy but `I know it isn’t. The result as always is such a beautiful card and your colouring and patience is so impressive.
Oh my word that is one gorgeous card. Your coloring is out of this world! So talented. I want to get this good. I’m new so I’m going to start practicing, you have inspired me! Also, I would have never thought to stamp it on the edge like that and cut it out even though I have dies that does that! Lol😆 I am going to have to use that technique next time I do a card. Thank you for doing these card examples, it brightens my day!
Oh by the way, I am new to this blogging stuff so I am trying to figure if all out and I love all the cards I’ve seen you do so I just subscribed to you! Thanks for doing this! You are so talented and inspire me to try more.
This is a gorgeous PAF set, a very pretty image and great sentiments!! This watercolored hydrangea is fabulous Therese, the partial diecut enhances your coloring! Love it! Thanks for the inspiration!
I love your soft water colouring with the black and white stripe. Lovely! Also, thanks for the video. I love watching your video’s and do get a little better each time. Although, I think I just lack the talent for colouring and painting, but love doing it anyways.
What a beautiful design Therese! Love the watercolored, partially diecut border, your design as always is stunning, thanks for the video!
So beautiful! Love the variety of colors on the petals, Therese!!
The coloring you achieved on those flowers is amazing!! And the contrast of the soft water color with the bold black and white is so eye-catching!
Love this card!! Your watercoloring is fabulous, as always!
Wow! Beautiful card with awesome coloring and a lovely simple design! <3
Beautiful! I LOVE the black and white strip paper behind the hydrangeas.
Such beautiful hydrangeas! And the black and white really sets them off perfectly!
Loved your card and your coloring in the video was amazing . Beautifully done.
Such a beautiful card! I love the way you make the watercoloring look so easy! I always learn a lot from your videos!
Love the way you fussy cut this beautiful new flower! And the use of the black lined paper really sets it off. Love how you added the LOVE die cut above your stamped sentiment, too. Well, I guess I loved it all! Your video has inspired me to dig out my watercolor brushes and give this a try!
So beautiful – I love that warm touch of pink you added to your hydrangeas – it gives them such a lovely glow!
You card is stunning!
so sweet. I like the colors and the striped border.
This is how I envision hydrangea. Beautiful!!
What a beautiful card! I love how you colored these flowers and did a partial die cut. 🙂
Gorgeous card! Love the way you colored these beautiful hydrangeas! Pretty details with the cut edge following the design, and the addition of the b&w striped paper!
Absolutely gorgeous card. Fantastic idea to change the orientation.
Thank you once again Therese, for sharing your talents with us.
Beautifully done!! The watercolours and striped pattern really make everything pop, Thanks for sharing.
So beautiful! Thank you for sharing your process. I am in love with the hydrangea release!!!
Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers! Yours are gorgeous Therese! Thanks for sharing another great informative video! Stay safe! 🙂
Beautiful, Therese … as ever, it’s a joy to watch you colour … and create something sooooo lovely! Hugs, Anita 🙂
I am blown away by your unique card design and your water coloring is so soft and serene! Absolutely LOVE everything about your card!!
This is beautiful, Therese! Ahh, is was so refreshing to come over and watch one of your videos! The moss color worked so well to give some variation in the petals, and those hydrangeas look amazing cut along the edge! I have a guide wire trimmer like yours for just that purpose. I hope you are well and staying safe!
I am having fun using the watercolor markers. Learned something new when I watched your video. And you are a master fussy cutter!!! I had to watch the video because I was sure you used a die cut! Fooled me. I bought this stamp and can’t wait to make a couple of Mother’s Day cards for my girls. Staying home, crafting, reading and being safe. Take care, everyone.
I LOVE, love your card— they black and white stripes really add class! Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
Gorgeous card and beautiful water coloring. I like to use watercolor markers myself, I seem to have greater control with those. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card.
I always enjoy watching you color. It’s not something I’m very good at and your tips are helpful. These flowers are very pretty and I like the card design.
I always enjoy your videos Therese. This card is exceptional in the soft watercolours you used, the cutting out around the flowers & using the black & white striped paper was a stroke of genius. Thanks.
Love the contrast between your flowers and the striped background. This card has great balance and you’re painting makes these beautiful hydrangeas look like stained glass.
Stunning project. Love how that stripped background makes those beautiful flowers pop. Thanks for sharing
Stunning card! Loved watching your coloring process.
Beautiful! Love your watercoloring!
Beautiful card! Lovely watercoloring and design. I love the black striped paper along the edge.
This a beautiful stamp set. I always hope that my hydrangea winters over and makes me happy when I start to see the first green buds. I love what an elegant card you can make with this stamp. I love your cut edge. Makes this card even more special. Love your work, love your blog….I’m your blog stalker. I’ve been a long time follower.
Thanks so much for being a ‘stalker’ lol. I am so happy that you took the time to let my know. Please look after yourself and Stay Safe, Crafty hugs, Therese
The colors you chose blended into such a realistic flower! BEAUTIFUL!
I love the beautiful mixed colors you used on the hydrangeas. It’s gorgeous!!
That was a clever way to accent the hydrangea! Love the cut out bit against the bold stripe. Such a great idea!
Absolutely gorgeous Theresa! Love the colours you used,and that bit of moss on the petals gives it more a realistic look -love it! Great design as well!
So pretty – classic black and white trim!
Very pretty! I love how real these look, blue hydrangeas are my favorite!
Wonderful card! It looks like a picture!! Amazing !
