Altenew has joined with 18 challenges to create the Ultimate Blog Hop featuring Altenew stamps and products. Here's all the participating challenge blogs that are involved.
It's very exciting and there is so much creative inspiration from each challenge blog and their design teams. Why don't you check it out?? Make sure to comment for a change to win. Altenew is providing FIVE $35 gift certificates for a random draw of those that comment on all the blogs involved in the hop. Come join in the fun and a chance to win prizes.
My card above includes a technique that looks like marble (in my opinion). I smooshed Inka Gold in pink and gold to create this marble-y looking background. I stamped and heat embossed in gold, a beautiful leafy branch from Altenew's Golden Garden stamp set. The image was stamped twice (once on the card front, and once on the tag), using the Misti to line everything up. It looks like the leaves have gone over the edge of the tag. :)
I've also stamped, heat embossed in gold, and fussy cut a butterfly from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus stamp set, using more inka gold smooshed card stock. Zigs were used to add in some more colour to the design.
I'm entering my card into the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop, and adding it to the CAS Mix Up September Challenge - Marbling. I hope to see you in both galleries!!
