Hello, crafty friends! Love watercolors? Love flowers? This is for YOU!

This is your chance to take your creativity to the next level and win AMAZING prizes!


We are back for another round of Creativity Inspired Contest. As always, this Altenew-original contest series is here to inspire you and see where your creativity takes you – but this time, in a contest like you have never seen before!

Pair-A-Flower: Watercolor Edition Contest

We'd like you to bring Altenew florals to life using Altenew watercolor pan sets! We love seeing how life-like your projects are with Altenew stamps and dies, and now, we want you to take it a step further. Take a picture of a watercolor project using one of Altenew’s floral products side-by-side with a real-life flower.
