Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

You asked me to show you how it was done, so here it is, as requested…. You know you are my faves!

Welcome back, it’s time for another Paint-A-Flower release from Altenew and this one is the beautiful Paeonia Japonica. Did you arrive here from LILITH’s fabulous Blog? if you did, then you are in the right place!

Altenew - PAF Paenonia Japonica - Versatile Vases - Apothecary Labels 1

Today I am using the Altenew Artist Markers to recreate this card right HERE. This new Paint-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica was the perfect choice although you could say it was a labour of love… a love of colouring, which is exactly what these sets are made for.

Altenew - PAF Paenonia Japonica - Versatile Vases - Handwritten Hello 2 copy

Both of my card designs are very simple.

On this card I used the Handwritten Hello Die for the sentiment.

My second card has an Apothecary Label (you know I love these)

with a sentiment from the Paint-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica stamped over top.

I got this wonderful idea to ‘Split’ my card from Jennifer McGuire’s post HERE, thank you so much for yet another fabulous technique!

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.

  1. You are so artistic! I love the no line look, but I’m not good at it. I need distinct lines. But yours looks amazing!!!!!!

  2. Gorgeous, Therese … I haven’t watched, but get a tummy ache thinking you’ve cut this beauty in half? You know how to stretch your supplies, stash, AND coloring! xx
    =]

  3. As usual, your cards are beautiful. Its nice to know how long an image takes to color, it reminds me to go slow and be patient with ones coloring. Like you said, don’t be so hard on yourself! I also appreciate your running commentary, it makes me smile. Thanks for the tutorial.

  4. I have to admit that when you cut your beautiful bouquet in half, I gasped! But, for all the time you put into coloring it, you created two gorgeous cards! I really enjoyed your video!

  9. I enjoyed the coloring video and the surprise split for two cards. I think I need all the sets you’ve used. I might now make it to the end of the hop before I come back and link with you for the PAF and labels!

    two cards from it. Clever and a good job!
