Altenew & MISTI Collaboration Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Altenew and My Sweet Petunia collaboration blog hop! I’m SO happy to be part of this great event! 






The hop begins on the Altenew blog and if you have been hopping along, you should have come from Svitlana Shayevich. Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list at the bottom of this post. You will find lots of inspiration!

To celebrate this event, I created this card:




To create this scene, I used the wonderful Birch Land stamp set from Altenew. I stamped the trees, the leaves and the tiny bird with Distress inks onto watercolor paper using the MISTI stamping tool. I then used a wet paintbrush to go over the lines to make it look like watercolor. I used Tombow markers to create shadows and the grass. The "awesome" sentiment is from the Super Script stamp set from Altenew.


***PRIZE ALERT***

If you participate and leave comments on all blogs, you can win TWO mini MISTIs from My Sweet Petunia and THREE $30 gift certificates from Altenew. Winners will be picked randomly from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop and announced on the My Sweet Petunia and Altenew blogs on July 3, 2016.




***EXCLUSIVE OFFER***

For all My Sweet Petunia fans and to celebrate this fabulous collaboration, get 10 % off your entire order at www.altenew.com with code ALTENEWLOVESMISTI at check out. Offer ends on July 01 at midnight EST.

Francine,
All this time I've avoided stamping with distress inks because they are water reactive. I never thought to use them with stamps on watercolor! This is just a game changer for me. 😂 Where have I been? Thanks for sharing.
