Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

Hello everyone! Today I'm participating in Altenew’s 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4!


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


In celebration of these past six 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.


To celebrate Altenew's Anniwersary I made a card featuring my favorite Wallpaper Art and Build-A-Flower:Rose stamp sets.


I've started by stamping the images with Antique Linen distress ink onto piece of watercolor paper and watercolored the images using my favorite watercolors.


Once my coloring was done, I spalattered the flowers with the leftover paint and also with silver paint. Next, I die cut the images with coordinating dies. I also splattered the background with the leftover paint and silver paint.


Next, I adhered the flowers on top of my panel with foam tape and mounted my card onto light grey card base. The sentiment is from Forever in Love stamp set. To finished my card I've added a few clear sequins.
