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.
