Congratulations Kathy!Please contact us at winner@altenew.com by 7/20/2018 with the subject line Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop Winner from Gayatri’s Blog.

I have another project using Altenew’s new stencils.

I used two stencils on this card. The Flowing Drops and the Feeling Dotting stencils. At first I used the Flowing Drops stencils and sponged Altenew’s Tropical Forest ink set to get an ombre effect. Keeping the stencil in place, I place the Feeling Dotty stencil over it and sponged white pigment ink heavily over the two stencils. Love the polka dots on the flowing drops. The white pigment polka dots take the green colour from the background giving it subtle look too.

I trimmed the panel and adhered the panel at an angle on the card front. For the focal point, I stamped the flowers from Frosted Garden stamp set using Frosty Pink, Pink Pearl ink and Fresh Lemon ink.  Then die cut using coordinating dies. I then clustered them and adhered as shown.

The sentiment from the Frosted Garden stamp set is white heat embossed on strip of cardstock  and adhered at an angle. Finally added some diamonds to finish off the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Dear Funny Fantastic Fabulous Friend!

Hello everyone, Welcome back to my blog.

I have a card share today which I shared at Winnie & Walter Blog.

I had been doing a lot of copic colouring last month. So I thought I will change the medium a bit and do a bit of watercolouring. I stamped the images from In Bloom: Renee’s Leaves on Bristol panel. I used Simon Says Stamp’s Intense Black ink to stamp the images. This ink works with watercolours. And the watercolours I used are Zig Clean Colour Brush pens. The colours I choose to colour the images are Orange, Blue, Olive Green and Yellow. I swiped the colour on one side of the leaves or bottom of each leaf depending on the leaf, then come in with water with a brush to move the pigment in an ombre. I coloured in all the leaves using the same method to make the background. 

Once the panel is dry, I added drop shadow using W3 copic marker and gold, black and white spatters. I trimmed the panel and adhered to a yellow card base.

 Then I when heat embossed the sentiment from The Big, the Bold and Friends stamp set on black cardstock, trimmed into strips and adhered on the centre of the card front. Finally some sparkling clear diamonds to complete the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.


Hope you like my project today. Thank you for visiting my blog.
