Altenew August 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello and WELCOME to Altenew's August release hop!

You must be here from my amazingly awesome friend,
who I have actually met in real life, Tania Ahmad's blog.

Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This is a gorgeous set! I kept the card simple and added tons of splatter for interest.

Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped and die cut all the images then glued them directly on the card base. Super mail friendly card!

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I tried to keep the card simple. I stamped one of the flowers multiple times to build my background. Then, I added a bit of shading with Prismacolor pencils.

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On this card, I stamped the flower once and the leaves several times. Next I watercoloured this very messily with Altenew 36 Pan Set. Then I added some doodling and extra "drawn" lines to give the stamp a more of a sketch look. This is a one layer card, I tried to show a bit of dimension by adding a hint of Lava Rock watercolour.

Altenew Smile and Hugs Stamp Set | Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the florals multiple times and then coloured the images with Artist Markers. Next I die cut the images, added tons of white splatters to the background and arranged my floral bouquet.

Erum what a lot of variety you have created in your projects using the Altenew new releases. My favourite has to be the project where you use the black card base and then add the floral images on afterwards. These really 'pop' on this colour background. Thank you for sharing these with us crafters and giving us the opportunities to do these ourselves. I would love to win something from the Give-Away Erum in order that I could afford and XXX :O) TFS xx "O)
