Altenew Educator Blog Hop

Hello friends!
I have a special blog post over Altenew Card Blog today!
I am sharing a project with Delicate Primrose Stamp/Die Bundle.
As the Coordinator of Altenew Certification Program since November 2017, I have the pleasure of working with numerous creative stampers all over the world.

I am very proud of this program as I have been working heavily and tirelessly with every step of the program, from drafting the application form to the Q & A, selection of the participants, reviewing projects and answering hundreds of e-mails. It has been a very rewarding experience. However, I do plan to step back a bit from the program to focus on other things that I didn't have time for.

Today we have a celebratory blog hop to celebrate our certified Educators.

Here is more about Altenew Educators Certification Program (AECP)?
We started this program back in December, 2017. We now have 11 ( and counting) certified Educators in such a short time. These talented and hard-working Educators started from Level 1 and worked all their way up to Level 3. They passed 3 final challenges and successfully conducted an Altenew Card-making workshop (observed by our team members). You can find out about the program here. Today we are celebrating the certified Altenew Educators with a special blog hop. There are prizes (of course), so be sure to hop along for inspiration and creative ideas.


We asked our Educators to share their "favorites". They can be the favorite card-making styles, Altenew products or favorite techniques....etc. Being the Coordinator of the AECP, I am kicking it off here with my latest favorite medium-Water-coloring! With Altenew's Watercolor Brush Markers, anyone can color like a pro!


For the background, I used Metallic Silver Brush Markers from Winter Wonderland Collection. After adhering Flowing Butterfly Stencil with a piece of Washi Tape, I can easily apply the brush marker over the stencil. You can see the gorgeous metallic shine!


I colored the Primrose with a mix of colors. This is the fun part of playing with the Watercolor Brush Markers. You will be amazed how the color mix and you get the unexpected rich gorgeous colors! I used the paper from Our Family 12/12 Pattern Paper Collection for the card base.  The subtle green stripes provide just the right amount of color and interest.

I would like to mention that this Strength Blooms Stamp/Die Bundle is 40% off
Two days only!
(regular price: $30, now $18)

Wish I could see the glimmer of those butterflies better but the composition of this card is so lovely and the colors you've used so vibrant, it really doesn't matter. I'm just nosy.
