Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hey there!
You must be here from the lovely Jennifer McGuire's blog.
I have five simple cards to share with you.

Altenew Calligraphy Maze Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Calligraphy Maze Stencil to draw a maze by using a black pen. I even drew two small stick figures and added the sentiment "Missing You".

I popped up a few red hearts and added glossy accents on them.

Altenew Mega Hydrangea Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my second card I used the Mega Hydrangea Stencil and inked it with a few Altenew Crisp Inks.
Next I selected a couple of the hydrangeas and added pencil detailing to them.

Altenew Spring Garden Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0


My third card features the Spring Garden Stencil. I used a black pen to draw outlines and then coloured in with watercolours. I also gave the background a light grey shade.

I used the same Spring Garden Stencil on this card as well. Outlined it the same way but didn't add any colour. Popped up a hot pink label with a black border. In the end I added a few black splatters.

Altenew Molded Lines Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For my last card I used Molded Lines Stencil and distress inks. Kept this one super simple and let the colours be the focus.

Love the maze card and the colorful card!

Teri Smith said...

Oh Erin, you've made some fabulous cards! I think it was brilliant to add two little stick figures to your maze as it really brought the meaning of the sentiment home. I thought the Elegant Swirl stencil was my favourite, but now that I see the Hydrangea, it's in first place by far. The card you created using it is so soft & elegant.

Karen Wall said...

Love your cards. The maze one with the red hearts is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing.
