Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone! Happy August! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating the new release of the new Build-A-Flower Fashion Monger Dahlia.

I love the look of the image this month because of the organic feel it gives for the petals. Almost like a watercolor wash type of look.

I added some light ink blending to a white card base and also some metallic watercolor splatters before adhering my flowers.


$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 08/07/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 08/09/2021.


If you arrived from Jaycee’s blog you are in the right spot.

Your next stop in the hop will be Emily Midgett.
