For Altenew's 5th anniversary I wanted to go to my all time favorites stamp sets, and my precious- watercolors of course! 

Here's my layout-


I used my Botanical Garden and Wild Hibiscus stamp sets, as well as my Altenew 36 half set watercolors.



I used the halftone circles dies to cut these circles into some watercolor paper, and then just painted it and waited for it to dry. I kept the stamping part super simple with just using black ink. I love the combination of black and white flowers with the bright watercolors.



Hope you like my layout and feel inspired to use some of your favorite Altenew stamps! Here's the full list for today's hop-

  106. Fantastic layout with such a great picture! Your elements are lovely but the thing I really like is that you used a bigger picture. Your photo is not swallowed up by your layout like so many are that I see. I think that is what I like the best. You kept your photo front and center instead of focusing only on Altenew's great products.

    ReplyDelete

  111. I was unfamiliar with these stamps, so I'm so glad you brought them to my attention! They are lovely. That's my favorite part of this kind of hop: getting to see various designers' favorite products. And what a cool idea to do bold colors with a few geometric papers, then keep your photo and the flower black and white. Thanks for sharing with us!
