For a couple of months this year, I received the opportunity to be a guest designer for Altenew. This is my first time being asked to be a designer. It was so much fun to receive a few items and then be able to create projects with them.

This post is part of a blog hop for Altenew. You should have come from Lilith Eeckels

We were asked to choose 4 projects to highlight.

If you would like the full details on how this card was made you can look for the August 12th post. 

Artist Marker Set C, and Sunshine Valley Garden Set. Colors B63, B106, R925, R400, R301, R, 101, R056, Y204, G503, G515, G426.

I do love me some white space, but the dry embossing on the black background is a close second!

The next project was from May 14th if you would like the full details.

I love to make a card and gift bag that coordinates. I found you can heat emboss on washi tape.

The third project was from May 1st.

I used: Indian Lotus Stamp Set, Colored Pencils, Versafine Black Ink, Fine Liner Pen Set, White gel pen, Embossing ink, and White Embossing Powder.

Line images colored in with pencils is another favorite.

The last project I chose was from May 7th.

The products that I used are:Craft-A-Flower Buttercup Dies, Limestone Ink, Alcohol Ink refills in Mountain Mist, Lagoon, Emerald, Sea Glass, and Desert Night.  Crisp Dye inks in Mountain Mist, Lagoon, Emerald, Sea Glass, Desert Night, and Permanent Black Ink. 

It was hard for me to chose just 4, Leave me a comment and let me know which was your favorite?
