Frosted Garden (Go with the Flow) & Blog Hop Winner Announcement

Hello friends!
I have one more card to share from the latest Altenew Release.
AND I am announcing the winner of the December Blog Hop. (see it at the end of the post).
I saw it on ALTENEW

Frosted Garden Stamp & Die Bundle

Frosted Garden Stamp and Die Bundle is absolutely awesome!
 This stamp set provides you lots of possibilities.

You can purchase the stamp set here, the die here over Altenew Shop.
Here in my first take, I used the largest stamp from this set.
In case you are wondering how I came up with the design (see post title)...

 I basically watch how the images F-L-O-W.
Ding---> Paper Crafting can be very flat, still and quiet. 
Sometimes, if I can, I like to add some "movement" to the designs. Using splatter is helpful with create a movement/ a sense of motion. With a few droplets of colors, you draw the viewer's eyes to the focal point.

I love stamping multiple shades and colors. This set is a cross of solid and outline stamps.
There is no lining up...all you do is just stamp.

I love the Splatter Effect and used quite a bit in this card design.
I saw it on ALTENEW

 I am now using Mini Bloom for my intricate die cutting.

Such a pretty card. Thank you for sharing about the splatter effect and how it gives cards some movement. For me, sometimes it works and sometimes not. Learning as I go. Thank you for the inspiration.
