Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi there!
Welcome to the Altenew November 2018 Stencil/Ink Spray Release Blog Hop + Giveaway, you should have arrived from Therese's blog.

I am so happy to have been invited by Altenew to be part of this release, as the new ink sprays and stencils are so beautiful and so much fun to use in different ways.  As  a mixed media lover, the new inks and stencils are the perfect way to add that creative flair to projects.  Let me share with you what i have created for this blog hop:




For this first project, i used the Flowing  Buterfly stencil with the Cosmic Berry ink spray along with some Vicki Boutin Acrylic Gel to create the flying butterflies for this page.   I chose to add some white ink spray, also from Altenew, to create the ombre effect of the butterflies on the page. 




The Wavy Grid stencil is probably one of my favorite stencils from this release.  This time i used it to stamp some Lagoon Ink Spray onto the cardstock and form the background for this page.  The following video will show you how this all came together:




Love the ombre effect of the butterflies,  the ink sprays are so easy to work with and can be used on so many projects with different results in each.  Just like in the next project.


For this card, i chose to use the Flower Mandala stencil and the Cosmic Berry Ink Spray to create the background of this card.  First, I used a watercolor brush to apply the ink to a piece of heavy cardstock through the flower stencil, i made sure to mask the edges of the card so that they can frame the card.



The inks were also used to color in the flowers images from the Always There stamp set that are layered with some leaves from the Leaf Canopy stamp set.  The sentiment comes from the PLayful Bloom stamp set.   Just love the color combination, and all the layered details, and now this card was the inspiration for the last project.




This layout features the Wavy Grid stencil and  the Misty Mountain, Lagoon, Sunkissed and Cosmic Berry ink sprays in one page, as well as the Always There Stamp set, Leaf Canopy Stamp set, VIntage Rose stamp set, Collecting Memories stamp set.   




I started by creating the Wavy Grid stencil with gesso on the background, then added the inks to create the watercolor look of the background.   Then the inks were used to color the stamped leaves and flowers that are layered around the picture.  The following video will showcase how this all came together:




The color combination, texture and dimension of this page is just the perfect background for this beloved memory.

I hope you are all inspired to stop by the Altenew store to check all the new releases available,  You will love each and every one of them!  And now onto the sweetest part of the blog hop, the giveaways.
