Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Altenew April 2019 Blog Hop using the new Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet stamp set and Sweet Violet Coordinating Dies. You should have arrived from Erum Tasneem's Blog.

 To begin, I first distressed the card base using the Distress Oxide ink using a Dauber and splattered it with water and gold watercolor paint for interest.

 Then, I stamped the images then die-cut using its matching dies.


 I also added some jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

 Here's another look

I hope you guys enjoyed my take.
Your next stop is to Anna Komenda's Blog
