Altenew 8th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 5 + Giveaway (over $2,000 in Total Prizes)

 


Welcome here from Karen Brown's blog. The hop begins at the Altenew Card Blog, feel free to head back there if you get lost anywhere along the way.

Happy to share with you a couple of projects I created to celebrate Altenew's 8th Anniversary!


I've created a floral cluster with the Rose Mellow Layering Stencil adding dot details with the Hawaiian Shores Brush and Fine Tip pens, then fussy cutting and layering over a watercolored background that I've also added foil to with the Tiny Patterns Hot Foil plate.


I die cut the sentiment with the Essential Sentiment Strips die from Gold Mirror card stock.


I had lots of fun making this card! 

I used the Flowing Hearts stencil, creating a card background by first tracing the stencil with C002 Soft Lilac Artist Markers and then coloring in with Lavender Fields, Deep Iris and Midnight Violet Artist Markers

I then outlined the hearts with WG03 and colored in the background with WG01.



Sentiment is die cut from black card stock with the Framed Thanks Die.

Free Gift!
