Hello and welcome to Altenew March Release Blog Hop!
You have arrived here from Lisa Spangler's blog.
If you have happened to land on this post randomly then please know there is a hop list at the end of this post and you are absolutely welcome to hop along with us.


This time Altenew will be releasing 7 stencils, 12 ink sprays (metallic), 13 new colours in cardstock and 7 coloured envelopes!
PHEW that is A LOT of awesome new stuff!

I feel weird that I have just one project to share with you. Unfortunately I had very little time on my hands. Here is what I made.

I can't believe I made a pretty card!
I mean I love my bold, grungy watercolour look but this one looks so pretty and "clean" LOL

I have used Beautiful Day and Halftone Hello stamp sets for my card along with the new stencil (Sketched Lines) and ink spray.

I used the beautiful Frosty Pink metallic ink spray as my watercolour for my flower!
Doesn't it look beautiful?!

It has a gorgeous shimmer and whats amazing about these sprays is that the shimmer doesn't stick to the base. I mean it does a bit but just a couple of shakes and its all mixed beautifully. You don't have to keep on shaking the bottle like a lunatic to get all the shimmer to mix with the liquid part.

This shot above is an odd one but I had to take it an angle to show off the shimmer.
The gorgeous sequins that I have used are from Dress My Craft.

To celebrate this release Altenew is giving away $50 to three lucky winners.
Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Thursday, March 16th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Friday, March 17th.

In addition to this,
I will also be drawing a winner from all the comments left on this post for $30 gift certificate.

Sabrina Fioretti said...

Lovely card! I am loving my Altenew stamps and the new release!

Gail Plaskiewicz said...

Everyone talked about how the sprays shimmer and you could kind of see it in their posts but you nailed it when you showed it on your card! Oh my gosh, I am trying not to drool all over my computer while looking at your pretty flower. I love the shimmer! It reminds me of my glitter pens that I am in love with at the moment because of how you can see the sparkle when you use them. I can see me using glitter pens and Spray Inks on the same card. Can you imagine how sparkly and shiny a card would look with both? Wow, just like your card, except for the glitter. Your card is exquisite! I really love the colors you used, 2 colors I never would have put together for a flower card. In fact, I want to print your card picture out so I can do a card in those colors, which I'm sure I have. Then when I win this thing, I can get the spray and do what you did. It's a win/win for me! LOL I also want that background stencil as I never do backgrounds because I don't have that kind of stencil. I will now!

Jenniferk said...

I think your card is stunning! I love that you used the spray to watercolour and the results are amazing, it just the perfect amount of shimmer. I think that by keeping the rest of the card to various shaded of grey really looks fantastic, the stencil adds just enough interest while still allowing the beautiful flower to shine. Love it!!!

Nandini said...

Love the beautiful and elegant card. And the new stencils and sprays are just awesome!

Annette Reed said...

I love this! It is gorgeous! I would love more details. What is the white product that is on your flowers? It looks like tulip paint or liquid pearls. I don't suppose you have a video on this somewhere do you? Have a great day!
