Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Altenew Blog Hop

Welcome everyone!! If you have come from Reiko Tsuchida‘s blog, you’re in the right place! It’s Shari carroll here to give you some inspiration using the new Altenew Peony Dream and Watercolor Stripes Cover dies.

I’ve been experimenting with ways of adding color to my cards and have found a really easy technique of fingerprinting with Dina Wakley Acrylic paints.

Shari Carroll, Altenew,

I die cut my pieces, added color with paints and stacked them back together with a bit of foam tape for dimension. The colors are fresh and tropical which warms me up in the middle of winter.

I’ve filmed a video showing the process of creating this card. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  1. Great ideas, this is may be my favorite along this blog hop. I tend to be partial to watercolors.The flowers you made are beautiful. I love the way they are layered.

  2. This card takes my breath away!!! The colors are just so perfect – and the striped soft background “hosts” the florals beautifully. Love love love this!

  3. This is beautiful Shari, I would have never thought to use my fingers like you have. The effect is stunning. Hope your hand/wrist improves soon, but you can still create wonderfully with it as it is!

  4. Beautiful! I love how you used paints instead of watercolors. Adds a whole new aspect (and it looks like fun!). Thank you!

  5. Shari, this is just beautiful beautiful!! I’ve been remiss in saying I’m sorry to see you’ve injured yourself or have undergone surgery. Hope you are better sooner rather than later. This is a gorgeous release. Altenew really does the best florals!
