Happy Anniversary Floral

                                                                 Altenew Academy
                                                     Online Card Class Heat Wave
Altenew Academy is about coloring.  I have not had success with coloring flowers blue.  They just haven't looked natural to me.  These came closer to being what I had in my head.  Using Tomboy markers and an Aqua Brush I colored these flowers with just two colors of blue and two colors of green.    The centers are heat embossed with gold put on lightly so some of the stamping still shows through.  The lines are red line tape with gold heat embossing.  The Altenew sentiment is also gold heat embossed.
Instead of the usual water or paint splatters I wanted to try splattering gold embossing powder.  It's tricky because it flies away so easily.  I heated it from the bottom and used some VersaMark Pen dots to hold it in place.


  1. LOVE that you heat embossed the gold, what a wonderful addition to your blue flowers. I agree with you and sometimes I struggle with creating 'blue' flowers, but you have really made these ones shine!
