Altenew Celebrating Watercolors Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Hello, crafty friends!
I am excited to be joining Altenew for their Celebrating Watercolors Blog Hop. We hope to give you some project inspiration and share creative ideas to use the  Altenew Watercolor Pan Sets for your projects. 

If you arrived here from, Tenia Nelson'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. We've got tons of inspiration and giveaways for you on the hop today, so keep reading till the end of this post for more information.




Altenew's vibrant Watercolor Pan Sets are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. These watercolors coordinate with their line of inks, are stored in convenient and travel-friendly cases, and some water color sets come with a free waterbrush! These are ideal for both beginners and seasoned crafters!

To create my card I first die cut my floral's and my foliage using watercolor paper as I wanted to color these diecuts with watercolors.I have loosely colored the flowers and leaves from three different sets from Altenew Layered Floral Elements Die Set, Bride To Be Stamp & Die Set, Itty Bitty Branches Die Set, Script Words 2 Die Set using the Altenew pan watercolor set.The color scheme i was going for for pastel blue with hint of yellow, gray,brown and green.I die-cut the sentiment fromScript Words 2 Die Set using the gold mirror card-stock from Altenew.I have used an rectangle blue cardstock to create my panel and arranged my floral's on the two edges of the panel to create a frame.I have then layered my blue panel on the gold mirror card-stock and then mounted it on a white panel base along with the gold mirror card-stock again and finally stuck the panel's on my white card-stock base measuring 41/2 inches by 71/2 inches card base.
To finish off my card I have die-cut the congrats sentiment from gold mirror card-stock and layered it with fun foam to give it dimension.I finally stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Paint -a -flower Magnolia Rustica Rubra using Altenew black pigment ink on a strip of white cardstock and foam mounyed it before placing it below the die-cut sentiment.


My third card features the Florescence Embossing Folder and the Hello and Hugs Die Set along with the Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set.
