Altenew October 2016 Blog Hop

Hello Friends,


Today I'm participating Altenew October 2016 Blog Hop. If you came from Laura Bassen blog, you are at the right track, if not please start at the beginning from Altenew blog.

Altenew is releasing 16 new stamp sets. I started my Christmas cards today and had some fun with the Modern Deer set and my Polychromo Pencils. Here's my project:


I started by stamping the deer with Rocky Shore Altenew Crisp Ink, I used the same ink for all three layers. Then I added texture with Faber-Castell Polychormo Pencils. For the background I added snowflakes. I used Snowing stamp from Altenew and stamped the flakes with Morning Frost Altenew Crisp ink. For the sentiment and I used a sentiment  from Holiday Wishes set. Here is a close-up from deer.


SUPPLY LIST:
Stamps: Modern Deer, Holiday Wishes and Snowing by Altenew
Inks: Rocky Shore, Morning Frost and Jet Black Altenew Crisp Inks
Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils: Bister (179), Van-Dyck-Brown (176), Nougat (178), Warm Grey I (270), Warm Grey V (274)


PRIZES:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Wednesday, October 19th at 11:59 PM EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on Thursday, October 20th on the Altenew blog.

I will also draw $30 gift certificate to Altenew online store on comments left on this blog post. I will announce the winner on Thursday, October 20th on my blog. Good luck!
