Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp Set Release + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Hello friends!  Welcome to the fun and inspirational blog hop to celebrate the release of Altenew's beautiful Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp!

You should have arrived here from the amazing Tenia Nelson's blog.  If you need to start at the beginning, head on over to the Altenew Card Blog.

The Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline Stamp is such a gorgeous stamp!  I love all of the sentiments in it too.  If you'd like to check it out, go to Altenew's shop for more details.

There are also two fabulous bundles for your to choose from: the Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline & Watercolor Essential 12 Pan Set Bundle, or the Paint-A-Flower: Lotus Outline & Watercolor Essential 24 Pan Set Bundle.  Click either photo to get to Altenew's shop for more details.

For my card with this beautiful set, I used my 36 Pan Watercolor set.  Read on for the details!

I began by stamping the beautiful Lotus image with black ink onto watercolor paper.  Then I used Pink Diamond, Puffy Heart, and Lagoon paints from the 36 Pan Watercolor set.  I used Mowed Lawn Distress re-inker to paint the leaves.  I added a very light layer of Lagoon to the leaves to give them more of an underwater look.

After the painting had dried, I stamped the included sentiment in clear embossing ink, sprinkled on some black embossing powder, and heat set it.  I really like this sentiment as it would work for several occasions!  I added a few clear droplets here and there in the water to mimic the bubbles for some fun dimension and shine!

I hope you've enjoyed my card and I've given you inspiration for the beautiful Paint-A-Flower: Lotus set.  Enjoy the rest of this amazing hop--lot's of inspiration is waiting for you!

Your next stop on the hop is sweet Ardyth Percy-Robb!
