Altenew's 4th Anniversary Blop Hop Day3 + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day3!!!

I'm so honored to be part of this amazing hop full of inspirations celebrating Altenew's 4th Anniversary!!! Hope you're enjoying hopping along!!! If you've arrived here from Carissa Wiley' blog, you are right on track. If you are lost on the way, you can start over on Altenew's blog!

I've created two cards for today!
The first card is featuring Forever and Always and Trigonometry.


I started by making the background panel. I stamped the triangles from Trigonometry in Dusk from Cool Summer Night Mini cube set and Maple Yellow from Pocketful Sunshine set. I gold heat embossed two triangles onto the panel. I gold heat embossed the rose cluster from Forever and Always on a Bristol Vellum panel, watercolored and fussy cut the image. The sentiment from Trigonometry was gold heat embossed on a strip of dark navy cardstock. 


I adhered gold glitter tape from New Day Card Kit on four sides of the cardbase and foam mounted the background panel. I then added the floral cluster using some foam adhesive and glued the sentiment strip onto the floral cluster. 


For next card I created a floral border using Happy Bloom set! 


I stamped the flower bouquet from Happy Bloom set two times on top and bottom of an Canson watercolor paper panel in some copic-friendly black ink. I colored the whole panel with watercolors in purple, pink, yellow and light blue with lots of water to created a loose watercolor wash background. I then colored the image using Altenew Artist markers  except for the small pink flowers.


The colors I used are...



The sentiment is also from Happy Bloom set. I gold heat embossed it on a torn vellum strip and added it onto the colored panel by taping the vellum on the back of the panel. I foam mounted the panel on the white cardbase. I finished of by adding some white accents on the flower centers using a white glaze pen.


Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!
