Altenew, Card

Video: Altenew July 2015 Blog Hop + Giveaways

by May Park-

unnamedHello, and welcome to the Altenew July 2015 Blog Hop! If you came from the amazing Laura Bassen’s blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls are sharing some fabulous projects to celebrate the release of nine new stamp sets, and here is what I came up with:


I created a garden themed thank you card using the images from Garden Grow and the sentiment from Layered Lily. To color the images, I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens for the first time. It’s not perfect, but I love how my coloring turned out.

I made a processing video on how I created my card. You can watch the video tutorial here or in HD on YouTube. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel, too. 🙂


Yesterday I posted a sneak peek of this card on my Instagram with this caption “This is the reason why I don’t like adding ink splatters on my card. I already ruined my two finished cards.” Then I got a lot of encouraging comments from my IG friends, and their sweet words gave me some comfort and confidence. Seriously crafty friends are the best! 🙂

    May, what kind of cards took do you use with the Zig markers? I tried some white cards took and they wouldn’t blend but they do great with watercolor paper. I noticed here you used cards took and was wondering what type.
