Altenew A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew A Year in Review Blog Hop 2017!!! It's an honor to be part of this blog hop and I'm so thrilled to have this chance to share my projects using Altenew products with you this year! Hope you're having fun and enjoying looking my projects :)! 

If you are arrived here from amazing Nina-Marie Trapani's blog, you are right on track. If you want to start over from the beginning of the hop, please move to Altenew Card blog. Or click here to go over to Altenew Scrapbook Blog

Lovely May from Altenew has created for all blog hop participants this banner showing best 4 of each crafter. I chose 4 cards created using different coloring mediums.


For this blog hop I chose 9 projects I made using Altenew products throughout the year of 2017. I'll add the link to the original post (please click the photo) along with a short description about each card. 


So let's get started! 


As you may know I love to color big floral images using alcohol inks. To create this cards I gold heat embossed the Sketchy Floral set on alcohol ink cardstock and colored it with Ranger alcohol inks.



This card was my entry at July Inspiration Challenge. I colored the camellia from Build-a-Flower: Camellia set using Artist Markers set A. I have a coloring video on the original post.



This card was made for the Altenew May Release Blog Hop. I watercolored Enchanted Iris using Zig brush markers. I love this stamp set and was so happy with the result :)!



This card was one of my projects I made using new Artist markers. I love the coral and warm gray combination on Golden Garden images. I was so happy with the result because the watercolor wash of the background in gold and payne's gray turned out just as I wanted :).



This card was my entry at January Inspiration Challenge and one of the winners. I created the background first and colored the gold heat embossed Best Mom image with acrylic paint.



This card is featuring Build-A-Flower: Camellia set again.  The first flower of the Build-A-Flower series. I watercolored the camellia in coral and gray. One of my favorite color combinations :).



This card was my entry at August Inspiration Challenge. Super chic color combination! I colored the butterflies from Bejeweled set with aqua and green alcohol inks and blended Hazelnut on the background.



The floral arrangement on this card was created using Remember This stamp set. I colored the images with Artist Markers set A. It was my first trial of the Artist Markers set A and I was so pleased with the result.



I've created this card to celebrate Altenew's 3rd Anniversary in April by using several floral stamp sets: Best MomRemember ThisSpring DaisyGarden Treasure and Beautiful Day. I love how this card turned out and the sentiment from Moments in Time set 


A good life is a collection of happy moments!
