Altenew Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy Blog Hop and Giveaway


 Hello and welcome here from the talented Michelle Short's blog!


If you get lost along the way during the hop you can return to the Altenew Card Blog at any time.

The newest Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy is lovely and so, so easy to put together!


I watercolored 9x12 watercolor paper with the following Watercolor Brush Markers:

Midnight Violet, Purple Wine, Warm Sunshine and Citrus Burst and then die cut the 3 layers of petals once dry.

After die-cutting, I misted the layers lightly with water and then used a flower shaping tool to curl petals and "scrunched" some of the layers to add dimension to the blooms.


Instead of die-cutting stems for the blooms I layered them over a leftover scrap of fabric from the Dreamy Bouquet fabric release using the stems on the fabric as the African Daisy stems. Prior to adhering the blooms I ran the card panel-fabric glued to a piece of patterned paper from the Wildflower 6x6 paper pack-through my die cut machine with the Dotted Tile Debossing Cover Die.

The sentiment is die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glitter card stock with the Bold Thanks die.
