Altenew Fresh Start Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello and welcome to the Altenew January Release! 

You must be here from the talented Terri Koszler's blog.

Please start at the Altenew blog to view the complete release.

Altenew Vintage Garden Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used the Vintage Garden Stamp & Die & Coloring Stencil Bundle to create quite a few images using Jet Black Mixed Media Ink, Magenta, and Pastel Sunrise Dye Inks. I was having so much fun hence the three cards.

For my slimline card, I started by ink blending Magenta Dye Ink mainly through the Vintage Garden Colouring Stencil. In some areas, I added a bit of Pastel Sunrise and it added such a cool look to the image!
Once I was done, I stamped the outline image in Obsidian Ink

For my background, I used 9 x 12 Watercolor Cardstock by Altenew. Which is quite textured, as you can see. I coloured my panel with the same colour inks. Then I added a few black paint splatters.
After adhering the stamps, I stamped the sentiment. 

I do have a video for these three cards I made but I had no time to edit it. How do you guys find the time to create videos and upload them for each project you make? I do shoot them, but they are left in my laptop collecting dust :/

For my second card, I used only Magenta Dye ink on the flower and  Jet Black Mixed Media Ink  on the leaves. I applied the black ink with a light touch so that it appeared more ombre than one solid colour.

For my background, I used the A2 Watercolour Cardstock by Altenew and the Jet Black Watercolour Brush Marker to create a dramatic look.

The sentiment is from the Block Sentiments Stamp Set.

Again, I used the colouring stencil and only Jet Black Mixed Media Ink to colour. In some places, I tried to use a light touch for a shaded effect.

The sentiment is from Block Sentiments Stamp Set.

Altenew Enchanted Roses Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On A2 Watercolour Cardstock, I heat embossed the image in Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I then used the Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the images. 

I also added a lot of gold and black paint splatters.

I watched the Altenew Youtube video showing the new release and saw your Vintage Garden cards on there and had to stop the video to just try and figure out how you made those gorgeous backgrounds. I imagine you put the watercolor on the paper then use the brush to pull down and fade out the color but I know I couldn't get that effect like on your top right card. Hope to see your video soon!
