Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway + VIDEO

Hello everyone! Today I'm participating in Altenew’s 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1


If you came from Zsoka Marko you are on the right track, but if not please start at the Altenew blog.


In celebration of these past five years, Altenew is hosting a special four-day blog hop! With four days, you know there is going to be so much Altenew inspiration heading your way from many talented designers! There are also prizes up for grabs, and even a shopping discount code. All these details will be listed at the bottom of this post.



VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.



Thank you so much for watching!

To celebrate Altenew's Anniwersary I made a card with beautiful Dearest Friend stamp set.



I stamped the beautiful flowers onto watercolor paper with black ink and watercolored with Altenew watercolors. 



I slightly watercolored the background and splattered it with the same paint and also with solution of Perfect Pearls.
Then, I stamped the sentiment with black ink and adhered my panel onto white card base.




Your next stop in the hop is Amber Rain Davis!
