Oh hello everyone,
I am so excited to be part of Altenew release this month. This release is fabulous I tell you. So make sure you have a pen and paper to write down your wish list.
Welcome to the Altenew Blog Hop!
If you are hopping, you should have come from the talented Chari Moss‘s blog. If this is your first stop, then don’t worry. I have the full list of all the designers participating in the blog hop towards the end of the post.
My projects today features Starry Flowers stamp set and Coordinating dies.
Love the dainty delicate looking cluster images. So pretty. But I also love that some sentiments are bold and some are not. Perfect to combine them. Here is my first project using this set.
ON this card, I stamped both the images on top of the panel flowing down. I used Altenew’s permanent black ink to stamp the images on Neenah Solar white 80 pound card panel. Then I used Altenew’s Artist Marker pen to colour the images. I used feathering technique to colour the flowers leaving large highlights. I also went around the image with a grey marker to add drop shadow. Then I simply stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the bottom right of the panel using Altenew permanent black ink. I adhered the panel to white card base using foam adhesives and embellished with clear droplets.
Here are some closeups of the card.
I will link all the supplies used to make this card towards the end of the post.
On my second card, I coloured the floral cluster images using yellow artist marker pens and die cut them using the coordinating dies.
I arranged them diagonally opposite on a white card panel and adhered them using foam adhesives to get dimension.I added glossy accents to the centre of the flowers for texture and more dimension. The sentiment is from an older stamp set called Heartfelt Sentiments. I white heat embossed it on strips of black cardstock and adhered them on the top right and bottom left using foam adhesives again. This panel is then adhered on a white card base again using foam adhesive and embellished with clear droplets.
Some closeups of the card.
The colouring here again is just feathering leaving a lot of white highlights. I am loving this kind of colouring especially for delicate smaller floral images.
Here are all the supplies I used on both the cards.
