Welcome to a fun blog hop! Altenew has released a new set of alcohol markers! It’s the set D and today we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You can start the blog hop from the beginning here: Altenew Card Blog.

I combined my new marker set with matching ink pad colors. This is something I love about Altenew, they offer a complete system that you can mix and match. The flower and sentiment are from the Wonderland Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). I colored the flower using the new Markers Set D and I did the same for the word “friend”. I used the Simply Friend Die( ALTN | SSS ) to die cut it and then went for an ombre look. For the background I stamped one of the designs from the Block Print Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS ) and I used Rose Quartz from the
Rose Petal Oval Set( ALTN | SSS ). Finally the little sentiment strip is stamped with Lagoon from the Sea Shore Oval Set( ALTN | SSS ) that matches the color of the stem.
