Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Gerbera Revolution Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in Total Prizes)


Welcome to the April Paint-A-Flower release blog hop and giveaway, you should have arrived here from Nathalie DeSousa, if not you can go back to the start of the hop at any time by visiting the Altenew Card Blog

This month's Paint-A-Flower is the Gerbera Revolution. I have a card to share with you using the new stamp set, lets take a look and I'll tell you all about how I nearly threw this card away.

I started by stamping the image onto Neenah solar crest cardstock using an alcohol friendly ink. I then used my Altenew Artist Makers to add colour to the image, I wanted it to be a very simplistic look, so didn't do any amazing blending etc

After colouring the image I noticed that my outline wasn't very sharp, I tried to re-stamp the image over the top but I had removed the stamp from my Misti and when I tried to align it, I was off and ended up with a double line...At this point I gave myself a good telling off and thought about throwing it away and starting again. Instead I reached for my Fine liner pens and used them to bridge the gap between the double stamped outlines. This resulted in a thicker line.

To add a background I used a blue marker to add a halo and then bled it out with a blender pen. I then used an inkpad in the same colour as the marker to ink blend and add inky splatters. I then stamped the sentiment in black, voilĂ  the card was finished. Do you think I saved it? Or should I have thrown it away and started again?

  1. Terri, I think you saved it, and great idea for those of us who don't do perfect everytime!

  2. Great save. The card turned out beautifully.

  3. Thanks for sharing your lovely card!

  4. Love how they look like they are glowing!

  5. Wow, what a gorgeous color combo! This is a sweet PAF and thanks for sharing your design.

  6. I like the background for these pretty flowers.

  7. You did save it! Love the colors you used.

  8. Great color combo! I love the gerbera daisies!

  11. Gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I definitely think you saved it. I didn't notice anything amiss at first glance, and I still don't notice anything amiss even after reading your post and looking more carefully at the card. Good save! That was smart thinking. I'm not sure it would have worked on a smaller or fussier image, but with these big, bold daisies, it was exactly the right move.


Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your comments.
