Altenew + The Daily Marker Color Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello, crafty friends!
I'm happy and honoured to be joining Altenew for the Color Therapy Blog Hop today. Altenew is collaborating with the amazing Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker to inspire crafters to find joy through coloring. Kathy is celebrating her 14th 30 Day Coloring Challenge until the end of November 2019. 

If you arrived here from the super talented, Gayatri Murali's Blog, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.


I have created a Card for this hop which features the Altenew Perfectly Perfect Stamp set, Dotted Scales Debossing Cover DieVirginia Rose 3D Die Set, Layered Floral Elements Die Set, and Sketchy Florals Stamp set. 

For my card, I started by stamping the flowers from the Altenew Perfectly Perfect Stamp set using Antique Linen Distress ink on Art Essentials 300 GSM Watercolor Paper. Next, I used the Purple Wine and Lime Brush Markers from the Tropical Fiesta Set to watercolour my flowers. I went in with about two to three layers of colour till I was happy with the way it looked. Then, I fussy cut the flowers and kept them aside.

For my card foliage, I die cut some leaves and filler flowers from the Virginia Rose 3D Die Set, and Layered Floral Elements Die Set and coloured the die cuts using the Purple Wine and Lime Brush Markers from the Tropical Fiesta Brush Markers Set

I used the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die to die cut a background panel for my card. Then, I die cut a circle from the centre of this panel and adhered my flowers and die cut leaves and foliage over it.

I used a sentiment from the  Sketchy Florals Stamp set which was stamped using the Altenew Obsidian Pigment ink. I then added some enamel dots as the finishing touch for my card. Finally, I adhered my card panel to an A2 top folding white card base.

Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and Kathy from The Daily Maker is also giving away her original 5”x7” watercolor artwork (including a custom frame). Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by 11/22/2019 for a chance to win.
