Altenew Peony Scrolls watercolored using distress inks.

I planned to use my new Altenew stamps since they are our sponsor today but sadly the package is still in transit (hoping it will reach me safely). I know all my friends LOVE Altenew so DO NOT miss this chance and DO leave a comment if you want to win a lil something something from Altenew!

I had the Peony Scrolls stamp set by Altenew on hand, 
I thought of using them a bit differently this time, so I added stems to the flowers! 
And to make it look a bit festive and sparkly, I used gold heat embossing and Tim Holtz distress glitter.

I watercolored the flowers and the background using distress inks. 
Wrapped some gold thread, added a few sequins and I was done!

It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! 
Today’s prize is generously supplied Altenew so you’ll definitely want to get your hands on it!
