Altenew June 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Raquel Bowman’s blog you are on the right track!

Today I am featuring the new Sweetest Peas Stamp Set – it’s so unique and whimsical design, a perfect set for watercolouring!
I stamped floral images from the Sweetest Peas set onto watercolour paper panel using VersaFine Smokey Gray pigment ink – I used the MISTI tool for stamping. I then watercoloured all stamped images with some blue & green coloured Distress inks and Hero Arts Watercolor Wheel. I added dark blue ink splatters all over the panel.
Once the panel was dry, I mounted the panel on Cornflower Blue card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the sentiment banner using foam tape.

Altenew May 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
Welcome to the Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Altenew Scrapbook Blog you are on the right track!

First two cards, I am featuring the Starry Flowers Stamp and Die Set – it’s one of my favourites among the entire new products.
I started by stamping larger flower from the Starry Flowers set on the top left corner of watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then coloured it with warm coloured watercolour & water brush.
Once the panel was dry, I die cut the watercoloured flower with the matching die, inked the panel with Tattered Rose Distress ink, then adhered the flower die cut in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Rustic Linen stamp set.

For my second card, I was inspired by the name of the stamp set! I heat embossed the flowers from the Starry Flowers set onto watercolour paper panel with white embossing powder first, and then ink blended the stamped panel with several Distress inks: Crushed Olive, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans. After blending, I freely brushed the panel with the same colours of Distress ink.
Once the panel was completely dry, I spritzed over the panel with Pure White ink spray. For the sentiment, I used the Wildflower Garden stamp set.

For my last card for the hop, I’m featuring the Garden Silhouette stamp set. I randomly stamped images onto watercolour panel in pigment black, then roughly watercoloured the panel with Gansai Tambi Watercolors. For the sentiment, I used the word “hugs” in the Script Words die set.
