Modern Florals with Geometric Shapes: Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1


 Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Altenew Anniversary Hop! 
Have you just been blown away by the projects on this hop?! 
You should have arrived from the Chameleon Pens Blog. If you are just stopping by you can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog. And you're going to want to because the giveaway on this hop are incredible! 


Be sure to leave comments by April 15th, 2018 at 11:59 PM EDT for a chance to win! 30 WINNERS will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on April 17th, 2018.
There are three days of hopping along so make you check the Altenew blog each day to get your daily dose of inspiration :) 



I wanted to do something a little bit different for today's card. Not too different ha, because there is coloring with black and white so that's pretty normal :) 


I thought it would be fun to create a really beautiful flower bouquet, and you know Altenew rocks though right?! and combine it with a harder edge geometric look. The Trigonometry set fit the bill perfectly. 


I stamped my bouquet and colored it up with my Altenew Alcohol markers before die cutting it out. I originally had a different background idea in mind but ended up stamping the open triangle in a simple diamond shape to frame my flowers. 

You can see the whole card come  together in the video below. 


It's a long hop and a long video so don't feel like you need to watch it now. hop along, it'll be here no worries :) 


I really love how simple but striking this whole design is. 
I'm totally in love with the way it came out!

Your next stop on the hop is super talented Flora Monika Farkas. I'm sure she's going to blow you away! 

If you get lost along the way here is the entire hop list 


Thanks for stopping in!

I actually saw this on my YT feed earlier today and thought it would be the perfect thing to watch as I settle in this evening. (I know they say don't do devices before bed, but it's how I chill before I go to sleep!) Can't wait--I already love the contrast of the geometry with the florals. Thanks.
