I hope that you are enjoying the Holidays! Today’s post is part of a hop looking back at my favourite Altenew projects from 2018. More on the hop below. I’ve linked supplies to each project. Compensated affiliate links used.
YEAR IN REVIEW – TOP FOUR
In no particular order, my four top favourites are:
Not unsurprisingly for me, all four of my top picks are watercolours, so 2018 was my watercolour year!
For this first card, I used the Wildflower Garden set combined with the Handmade Tags Die set. I wanted to create the feeling of a windswept English cottage garden with a riot of flowers growing together.
For my next card, I tested out the Altenew Watercolor Palette and created a garden using the Beautiful Day, Peony Bouquet, Garden Treasure and Build A Flower Coral Charm sets and paired them with a sentiment using the Halftone Everything dies and matching stamp set.
For this card, I combined the Crown Bloom stamp set loosely watercoloured and then added black pen detailing. I mixed the watercoloured panel with a heat embossed sentiment from the Build A Flower Chrysanthemum set.
Finally, my last card uses a bunch of Altenew products! I watercoloured a piece using the Perfectly Perfect set, die cut it with the Pocket Banner dies, added a Mega Alphabet E, and the subtle background used the Pinstripes set.

Oh, Debbie. Your watercoloring is always a treat. I love how you can do both the very loose, flow-y style and the very realistic style. Thanks for sharing with us, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with in 2019!
I just love looking at your watercolor projects. So beautiful!
Love how you watercolored the cards – so airy! Also appreciate that you used different products in your last card – different/unique!
