Altenew - 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!


Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Altenew 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!
Altenew blog



For my first card I first stamped sentiment to create a background using the Beautiful Day stamp set.


Next, I splatter the background with wet watercolor paint for added interest and added some Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins.


Next, I stamped the flower and leaves on a watercolor paper. Then heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then watercolored the images. Once it dried and then fussy cut and adhered on the card with foam tape.





For my next card I used the flower and sentiment from Wild Hibiscus stamp set. I stamped the images first with Versafine black onyx ink on a watercolor paper. Then  watercolored each image with ZIG Clear Color Brush.






For the sentiment I stamped it with white embossing powder on a Kraft cardstock to finish off the card. The sequins is from Pretty Pink Posh in Sparkling Clear.


I hope you guys enjoyed!
