Altenew November Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

Today I'm participating Altenew November Blog Hop. We have an amazingly talented group of ladies collaboration with us - I'm so honoured to be part in this hop. If you came from Lisa Spangler's blog, you're on a right track, if not, please start at the beginning of Altenew blog. 

Altenew is releasing 16 new stamp sets and 8 die sets today. I used Adore you stamp set and did some masking and shading. I used recently released new Altenew Crisp die inks to ink up the bacground. Ink colours used from light to card are: Rose Quantz, Puffy Heart,   Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry. I'm always so pleased how easily you can create ombre effects with Altenew inks. I fuzzy-cut the right border off and added added a piece of fun foam under my card panel to raise up the panel and add dimension to my card. To add contrast, I adhered a piece of black card stock to the left side of my card, it also balanced the card.  I stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink. Here is my card:
