Video : Altenew Stencils & Ink Sprays Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!


I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s 2017 March release and blog hop, and if you arrived here from the Altenew blog then you are exactly where you need to be.  Today we are releasing 7 stencils, 12 ink sprays, 13 coloured cardstocks and 7 coloured envelopes, could it be any more wonderful!

Today I have two cards and one video to share.  And if you know me, then you know I am allergic to getting ‘inky’ fingers….  wrong hobby right? lol.  But to spray…  it’s divine (it’s the ink blending that really gets under the nails and have you ever met my friend the ‘scrubbie’  it’s a great tool to get rid of inky fingers), but I digress….  these sprays didn’t get my fingers inky at all and the shimmery finish was so worth the possibility of getting inky for sure.  What a great way to ‘colour’!
Scroll down for the video and to find out how you can WIN!

I just had to share these beautiful ink colours with you……

Great cards and how fun it looks to use. I want some! I’d also like a heat gun. I had one but due to a freezer incident, which you don’t want to hear all about, I blew out mine!
