Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

I have an easy alcohol frontgound to share with you celebrating the new Artist Marker Refills being released at Altenew along with the Paint-A-Flower: Anemone and it is another beauty.  We are hopping along to celebrate the release so you should have arrived here from the SVITLANA’s amazing Blog!

I was told that acetate works really well with alcohol inks and I decided to give that a try today using the Artist Marker Refills.  And I needed to hide my acetate tape so created a frame using a Rounded Rectangles die.

120 thoughts on “Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

  1. What a GREAT idea!! Always looking for different ways to use alcohol ink creations on a card. This is a wonderful idea, and I look forward to giving it a try. Recently I discovered something fun when I decided to use wax paper when playing with inks so that clean up was easy. At the end of my session I had all this ink on the wax paper and I had an idea: to spritz the paper with rubbing alcohol and swipe some yupo through it. YUMMY!!! Thanks for the idea, Theresa. Love the look.

  2. Oh my goodness, I think you have shown a technique winner! This idea is making my mind swirl with fun ideas. Thank you for providing your readers with wonderful content. Simply beautiful card.

  3. What a great idea to use the acetate. I finally gave up on alcohol inks as I could not get the inks to move around on the paper. I am going to give your idea a try and use the new iris stamp which is still sitting there waiting for me to use it for the first time.

  4. Your color work on acetate is amazing, Therese. So glad you shared this and the video on this blog hop. Stay well.

  5. I love this technique for creating a beautiful card from alcohol inks. Sometimes I have trouble using my alcohol backgrounds on a card even though I love the background. This is such a great idea and I’m sure to have some acetate around somewhere. If not I’ll get some! Lol! You rocked it!

  6. I recently got out all my alcohol inks to play with. After watching your video, I’ll play with some acetate also. Popping up your frame makes a big difference too.

  7. Love the acetate as the foreground and the stamped image as the background! You always come up with clever ways to put your cards together. Thanks for the video. I always get a lot out of them!

  8. Therese, what an impressionable card. The colors are magnificent. What a lovely image for a phone cover. Thanks you for sharing with us. DonnB

  9. I LOVE your foreground! I always learn so much from your videos that I can try. I had fun yesterday smooshing and stamping over top yesterday (with great success) from your other video, today I’ll try this. I look forward to each of your posts. Thank you again.

  10. Great video! So clever. I didn’t know one could use alcohol inks on acetate! Your card is just beautiful, and so are the new alcohol pen refill inks.

  11. What a great idea with acetate. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful card with amazing technique. Love it. Hugs.

  12. I love this! The acetate adds colour, which means that you don’t have to carefully colour the stamped image. Wonderful idea!

  13. I am fairly new to Altenew. This is only the second time I have seen one of your videos and I have to tell you how very much I enjoy them. I had to jump over to YouTube and subscribe! I love the use of the acetate over the image! Beautiful card. I look forward to more videos, now that I have found you!

  14. This card is amazing. Such a beautiful color scheme. I’ve never tried the alcohol ink on acetate, but I will now. Thanks!!!😃 I hope you are well and happy.

  15. Therese your vision for the acetate as a front-ground: genius! And then your idea to adjust the angle to get it just right was inspired. Thanks for also sharing your creative thought process to get a sentiment design that worked- so real, refreshing, and greatly appreciated.

  16. Beautiful card! I love the colors and the pop of black from the sentiment! How clever to create using acetate!

    1. Hi Helen, Because it was a larger area I used a heavier weight acetate but you could use regular acetate or even clear packaging would work fine. Crafty hugs Therese x

  17. I love the vibrant colour over the black outline. This is a fantastic design idea to try. Leaving some of the acetate clear really makes this card special.

  18. Gorgeous card. That technique is genius. I can’t wait to pull out my alcohol inks and some acetate and give it a try!

  19. Simply beautiful, Therese! I love the color combo and the fact that you used the acetate as a “foreground”!!

  20. I like the idea to use the acetate for the ink blending to add the color over the stamping. Great video detailing the process.

  21. This is great! I love playing with alcohol ink and this technique is great. Hope you are faring well in Australia.

  22. Everything about this card is wonderful—the design, the colors, the use of the markers on acetate. Absolutely gorgeous!

  23. It looks like the alcohol ink moves really well on the acetate. Thanks for the inspiration, Therese. I’m going to try it.

  24. I’m not one to use alcohol inks, but sure admire those who create such beautiful movement and colors! You seemed to enjoy the Altenew ink release and it is beautiful! May try that wax paper thing. Thanks for the inspiration and please be safe and stay crafty!

  25. I love when a designer gives a new way to use something, I had no idea about acetate and alcohol ink! I have a bunch I use for shaker cards and this is a new idea. Gorgeous ink and stamp!

  26. I am SO going to try this technique, it’s so cool! Looks like it took a whole lot of time to make, but is quick and easy… my kind of card. Thanks so much for your video.

  27. Love the use of the acetate in the card. Always looking for different material for my cards . Thanks for sharing.

  28. You are my number one “go to” for flower inspiration! This is such a gorgeous way to use them and I must remember the alcohol on acetate!

  29. So dang smart of you – what a great way to put together a card! I love the layers & can see many other creative ways to incorporate alcohol inked acetate with printed images, without any of the troubles that can come-up when trying to stamp & color with alcohol inks. And your use of white space is perfect – it gives the viewer just enough breathing space, so they can really take-in all of the elements and yet, truly enjoy the card as a whole. It’s really beautiful, one that I’ll remember for some time. Thank you so much!

  30. This is so creative and absolutely beautiful, Therese! Never tried this technique, but your video makes me think I need to try! Love how you framed out your card, too.

  31. This is a stunning display of alcohol ink on acetate. I love your use of the frame, it makes the card. I never would have used a flower stamp as the 1st layer of the card to accentuate the colors. Thank you for sharing.

  32. OMG!! I love this idea!! I can color worth a hoot, but that is such a cool way to give the flower color without actually coloring it! I definitely have to give this a try!!

  33. Your videos are always such fun and so informative. Love your easy teaching manner. I never fail to learn at least one new thing from you; and today is no exception! Beside a new technique I have increased my vocabulary with the word “frontground.” I cannot wait to try this frontground technique – a fabulous twist and not expected. And echo your sentiment on Yeah for the refills, especially the colors you used. Looking forward to using this technique and purchasing these refills! Thanks for your efforts on this project.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
