Altenew March 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hi Everyone!

Guess how excited I was wen May from Altenew asked if I wanted to be part of their Altenew Card Blog March 2018 release bloghop and now I'm even more excited to get to share my Projects with you! If you are doing the hop You should have come here from Amazing Erum Tasneem and if you didn't there are links to all the participants at the bottom of this post.




For this first card I inked a bg panel and used the Beautiful Leaf Burst Stencil to get the wonderful patterned bg. I then used the new Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray to add even more texture to it. I then used the super Beautiful Watercolor Bouquet Stencil to create my rose.










For my next card I used the Leaf Burst Stencil and embossing paste to create a textured bg for the wonderful poppy created with the Poppy Bloom Stencil








I love the Leaf Burst Stencil so much I couldn't help using it for my third Project too. This time I used embossingpaste too but before I removed the stencil I sprayed it with Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray The watercolor flower is from the Floral Flurries Washi Tape















Last but not least I have a note book /diary I created with the Watercolor Bouquet Stencil and Monochrome Washi Tape







Leaf Burst Stencil
Poppy Bloom Stencil
Watercolor Bouquet Stencil
