Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello everyone and Welcome to the Altenew Build-AFlower: Sweet Violet Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! You should have come from 
Nancy McClelland, but if not please start at the Altenew blog. 






I've started by stamping the flowers and the leaves with Antique Linen distress ink onto piece of watercolor paper. 


I used Altenew watercolor brush markers for coloring. I squeezed the inks out of the markers into my pallet and watercolored the images. 


For the flowers I used Turquoise, Desert Night, Purple Wine and little bit Fresh Lemon. For the leaves I used Moss, Sweet Leaf, Desert Night and Paper Bag.


 Once my coloring was done, I spalattered the flowers with the leftover paint. Then, I die cutting the images with coordinating dies. For my background, I blended Forest Glades and Minty Mint Altenew inks onto watercolor paper, splattered it with the same inks and silver paint. 



Prizes:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Three winners will be announced on the Card Blog, and the other three winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Blog on 4/9/2019.

Giveaway:

I will also randomly choose a winner from the comments left on this post and the prize will be $15 gift certificate to Altenew online store. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 4/9/2019.
