Altenew and Freckled Fawn Blog Hop

Hello, 

Hopefully you are all doing well. Today I'm participating on a very fun blog hop between Altenew and Freckled Fawn. You probably just came from Candi Billman's blog, if not please be sure to start at the beginning from Altenew blog. 


So let's go into my project for today. Here we go:





I started by creating my background from White/Pink Blossoms on Tree washi tape from Freckled Fawn. The patterned paper was so easy to create and I think it looks cool behind the branch. Then I stamped the butterflies from Painted Butterflies from Altenew and coloured them with copics and coloured pencils. I also stamped the branch from Vintage Flowers and used co-ordinating dies to cut them. I also cut a frame from white card stock and adhered a piece of cream vellum behind it. Then I glued the elements on to the frame then I glued the frame onto my selfmade patterned paper. I used Love Script Wood Chips as my sentiment.

GIVEAWAY
To celebrate, Altenew is giving away two  $30 gift certificates to their online store and Freckled Fawn is giving away two January Embellishment Kits valued  $27 each. Please leave a comment by Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at 11:59 AM EST. Winners will be announced on the Freckled Fawn and Altenew blogs on January 28th.

GET HOPPING
Next on the hop will be talented Soraya Maes. Here is the full blog hop list. Hopefully you are having fun hopping!


Thank you for stopping by today and have fun hopping! See you soon!

Hugs,
Marika
