Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello Everyone, Welcome to Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! If you are hopping along you should have come from Taheerah Atchia's Blog. If you have not started at the beginning click the link HERE. Lots of inspiration and giveaways you don't want to miss.

To begin my first card, I first stamped the flower image from Altenew Charmed stamp set using black ink then color it with Copic Markers.

 I also added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in Sparkling Clear.

For this second card I used the Altenew Fantasy Floral 3D Die set.

To begin, I die-cut some flowers from watercolor paper. I watercolored the die-cut from lightest to darkest like the image to see below.
For my background I watercolored it with gray paint and added some gray splatters as well.

Once it all dries then I glued the pieces together and added the Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Confetti Mix. The stamp sentiment I used was from More than words stamp set.

I hope you guys enjoyed! Your next stop is at Virginia Lu's Blog.
Thank you for stopping by :)
