Hello friends! It’s blog hop time again with Altenew! Altenew is a company that makes some of the most BEAUtiful dies on the market – just check out that lovely blog hop banner above and you’ll see what I mean! All the paper flowers in that image are floral die cuts from Altenew dies!
You’ve probably arrived here from Anna Komenda’s blog but if you’ve happened here by chance, you can begin the hop at the Altenew Card Blog and go from there. You can find the whole blog hop list at the end of this post.
I die cut the Watercolor Stripes panel from plain white card stock and layered it over a card front of the same white card stock.
I stamped a few of the solid silhouette images from the Floral Art set using the lightest colored inks to begin and then adding more definition and shading with the Artist Markers on top. The inks I used for the leaves were Minty Mint, Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades and the Marker colors were Forest Glades, Evergreen and Ocean Waves. For the flowers I used Arctic, Soft Lilac & Lavender Fields inks and Deep Iris, Midnight Violet, Persian Blue and Sapphire Artist Markers for definition. You can see more of this technique over here.
I used a sentiment from the Floral Garden Stamp set, stamping it onto the background between the stripes and added some flat silver sequins from Honey Bee Stamps to finish.
There are prizes too! Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to five lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by Wednesday, October 31st for a chance to win. Five winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog on 11/4/2018.
