Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Wednesday!
Welcome to the first day of the Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 13 brand new stamp sets, 12 new dies, and medium & large storage pouches in August! If you arrived here from Kymona Tracey’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first and second card, I used the Thick and Thin Alpha and the Charmed stamp sets along with the Painted Butterflies stamp set.
I stamped my own sentiment “Save the date!” from the Thick and Thin Alpha set on the centre of watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then outlined flowers (from the Charmed set) and butterflies (from the Painted Butterflies set) around the sentiment area in black ink as well. I loosely coloured the stamped images with Distress inks and a wet paint brush. Once the panel was dry, I mounted it on white card base using glue tape first, and then added water droplets using Glossy Accents.
In my second card, I stamped the word “Praying for you” from the Thick and Thin Alpha set on watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then outlined flowers (from the Charmed set) and butterflies (from the Painted Butterflies set) around the sentiment area in black ink as well. I chose blue, green, and yellow Distress inks for watercolouring.

For my third card, I used the Circled Sentiments stamp set. I stamped 6 circled sentiments on watercolour panel in black pigment ink, and then roughly coloured around the stamped images with Distress inks in rainbow order. I added some ink splatters, then mounted the panel on navy card base using foam tape.

For my last card, I used the 3D Star die! I created a galaxy background using Distress inks first. I ink blended the panel with Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot Distress inks, then added metallic silver & opaque white ink splatters on the blended panel. I then die cut the 3D Star from watercolour paper, lightly coloured on it with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and a wet paint brush. Once the background panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using glue tape first, and then added all elements as shown to the card front using foam tape.

  1. Gorgeous flower cards and the circle sentiments card is just fun with those cheery colours. The background on the 3D star card is beautiful. The silver and white splattering just finishes it off nicely
