YEAR IN REVIEW
Original posts from top left: here, here, here, here, here and here
Here’s a look at some of my favorite Altenew cards from the year. It seems that I like two distinct styles – soft, elegant watercolor and clean, modern graphic!
FOUR TOP FAVORITES
In no particular order my four top favorites are ….
This was the card that I created when I first found out I was joining the Altenew team. I loved creating this card. I pulled out the Peony Bouquet set that I’d been meaning to play with for a long time and spent some quiet, quality time with my watercolors. The sentiment is from Persian Motifs which appropriately was one of the first Altenew sets I ever bought.
From soft and elegant to clean and graphic. I fell for the Simple Flowers set big time as soon as I saw it. Here I combined the lovely graphic blooms and leaves of the Simple Flowers set with the Wood Palette Background.
Time for tea? My answer to that is always yes LOL so the Vintage Teacups set was guaranteed to be a favorite of mine. I do love using random cups and containers to holding things too and what better than a Beautiful Day bloom.
Finally my last top four favorite is this card with gold embossing highlighting the elegant lines of the Adore You flowers set on a puddle of watercolor.
