Altenew February 2019 Release Blog Hop: Simple Coloring Detailed Images



Hello Crafters!

Welcome to the Altenew February Stamp/Die/Stencil Release!
If you're just stopping by head on over to the Altenew Card Blog so you don't miss a thing!  Otherwise you should have arrived from the amazing May Sukyong Park. Where I have no doubt your socks were blown off.

In case you need a bit more incentive to start back at the beginning let me help you! 


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 2/21/2019 for a

chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 2/24/2019.


I decided to go a bit softer with my images because I honestly I was so in love with the sentiment sets. They are so encouraging and uplifting I knew I had to have them. Since I wanted the sentiment to be the focus that meant the coloring couldn't be. But that doesn't mean it still isn't pretty :) 


For my first card I did some stamp layering. These images are always stunning. I made it fool proof by using one of the Altenew cube sets which have pre-selected colors that already look perfect together. I stamped out my flower and let that bold black sentiment shine! 



I couldn't do no coloring because while the sentiments make me happy coloring makes me pretty happy too. I decided to just go for a softer look that would still allow the sentiment to be the boldest part of the card. 

You can check out both cards in the video below. It's a short one for me haha! 



I really do like how soft and pretty they look even if that's not my normal look. Sometimes pushing out of the box is a genuinely joyful thing! 


Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Sveta Fotinia who has absolute gorgeousness waiting for you! 

Thank you so much for visiting! 

If you get lost along the way here's the entire hop list.
