Altenew Paint-A-flower: Magnolia Rustica Rubra Blog Hop

Today I’m excited to be joining in Altenew’s Blog Hop for the release of the Paint-a-Flower: Magnolia Rustica Rubra stamp set! Aren’t these flowers beautiful? I love their vibrant color!

There is also an Altenew Giveaway with this hop, so be sure to look for the details below my card description! 😊


  • The background panel is black cardstock.
  • The foreground card panel is white cardstock covered with Dotted Wide Washi Tape.
  • I stamped the floral outline image with Permanent Black Ink on white Bristol cardstock. [You must use an ink that works with alcohol markers!]
  • I colored the images with the Rose Petal, Summer Afternoon, and Tropical Forest Artist Alcohol Markers.
  • After finishing the coloring, I fussy cut the image and also a black shadow image from black cardstock. I adhered these together with liquid glue.
  • I used a Jet Black Artist Marker to color in the white spots within the floral image.
  • I adhered the washi panel to the background panel with Foam Tape. I also adhered the floral image to the washi panel with Foam Tape.
  • The sentiment is from this set. I stamped it with Obsidian Ink, clear heat embossed it, and then die cut it and a shadow piece with the Apothecary Labels Nesting Die Set. I attached it with Foam Tape.
  • Finally I added a few black pearls for embellishments.

    The black outline is a great idea. And I liked seeing the real thing–your models 🙂 Really pretty coloring.
