Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop

Altenew Blog Hop, Shari Carroll

Welcome everyone!! Today we are celebration the Altenew May stamp and die release. If you’re coming from Virginia Lu’s blog, then you’re in the right place!

I’ve selected the Garden Silhouette and Rustic Linen stamps to work with for my cards. I’ve used Tim Holtz Distress Markers on the flowers to get a watercolor effect.

By using the markers, I was able to add small amounts of color to the blossom portions of the stamps. I’ve created a simple background for my tags by stamping the Rustic Linen stamp in white onto Desert Storm cardstock.

I used the vase from the Garden Silhouette stamp set with one single flower. My card is mini size where I’ve folded over a 4.25″x5.5″ panel.

I started with yellow tones of markers in the center of the flower and worked my way out with oranges and pink.

I’ve filmed a video of how I colored these flowers which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

  2. Beautiful cards! I love the coloring technique with the markers. It gives the flowers such a soft, impressionistic feel. The linen-like background is perfect!

  3. Very pretty. Loving that Linen background and the lovely watercolor flowers. Thanks for sharing that technique.
