Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by. Today I am presenting my card I made to participate in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge August 2018.

My busy work schedule hasn’t stopped me from participating in the challenge this month because I just love the color combination. I had recently ordered some products from Altenew and hadn’t had a chance to play with some of them yet.

Here’s my card for today.

Altenew Perfectly Perfect

What Inspired me:

This is the picture form the inspiration post on Altenew Blog that inspired me to create my card.

How I made it:

I’ve been wanting to play with my new stamp set from Altenew called Perfectly Perfect. This stamp set is so pretty. The flower and leaves images in this stamp set are just outlined images. I love to use the outline images to stamp and color.

I stamped all the flower images and the leaves images on a watercolor paper with Versamark. Versamark is a sticky clear ink which helps the embossing powder to stick on it so I can heat set it using my heat tool to get the embossed image. I used White embossing powder.

Then the images were watercolored using the watercolor palette from  Prima Watercolors in the colors Tropical that I had bought on Amazon. I had in my mind the vision of blue flowers and green leaves on a yellow background.

Altenew Perfectly perfectThe Background:

Created the background on a white panel of cardstock sized 4 inches by 5 and a 1/4 inches in dimension. Used the yellow color from the same watercolor palette using the ink-smooshing technique. This technique is very popular these days to create a messy watercolor background.

Arranged the flowers and the leaves on the top left corner of the panel.  Some flowers were adhered directly using glue whereas some were added on a foam tape to create dimension.

The Sentiment:

Took a strip of black cardstock from my scrap stash, stamped it with two of the sentiments from the stamp set to make it look like one with Versamark ink. Embossed with white embossing powder and adhered using foam tape.

So here is my final card.

 I just loved how it turned out. Let me know what you guys think about it in the comments section down below.

Altenew February 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone. Thank you for stopping by.  I am participating in the February 2018 Inspiration Challenge on Altenew Blog. Today I have a beautiful Altenew card that I created using the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I bought this stamp set a while back and I used it so many times. It’s a beautiful stamp set. Here’s my take on this challenge.

And here is the Inspiration picture from the Altenew Blog.

I picked the dark pink and light pink color from the Inspiration and green for the leaves of course. The stamp set I used has large and small flowers so it is perfect to build a flower cluster.

Since I wanted to introduce a few more colors in this project I thought Black and white always adds a pop.

Then I stamped the flowers and leaves with clear Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I did a simple quick coloring using Copics.

I die-cut a ring using Simon says stamp stitched circle dies and started arranging my flowers and leaves around the ring to create a wreath-like cluster. The back of the flower cluster is sponged with green dye ink from Ranger.

The white panel was matted on a black panel 1/8th inch bigger to create a black border around it.  Then it is mounted on a white card base slightly larger than the black panel.

This is my take on the challenge. I am a big fan of Altenew Products.

Hope you liked this card.
