Bouquet of flowers with Altenew


When the ice pellets were falling down hard, I was in my craft room working on this card. First I stamped all the flowers seperate on watercolor paper and cut them out, then I layed them out on my white cardstock and stamped the stems, arranging the flowers, some are popped up. Then I cut around the top...and then...then I messed it up,grrrr, I had not used my wink of Stella pen in ages and I don't know what happened, but it was not good......so then I put stickles on top to cover it up and I guess it's okay.
The flowers are from Altenew whimsical flowers and the sentiment is from Persian motifs.

Layered lily

Finally inked up the layered lily from Altenew. Started with stamping on watercolour paper, shaded lilac from Tim Holtz, SU eggplant and Versafine black. I blended with water and cut out the lilies. The centre and stamina were added later. For the leaves, I used three inks, shabby shutters, peeled paint and forest moss, again I blended with water and cut them out. For the background, also watercolour paper,   I stamped SU French script with Versafine and heat embossed it in white. Then I added some antique linen and sprayed some water on, after that was dry, I inked up a big SU crosshatch stamp with memento toffee crunch and stamped over it. Walnut stain is sponged around, then I wiped the ink off the embossed areas. A vanilla base with some score lines and I put the card together, some viva pearls as a last final touch........so much fun to make it.

Hello with Altenew

Just playing with my stamps, i started with the pink piece of paper. The images are heat embossed in white, I coloured them with Tim Holtz distress markers, worn lipstick, barn door and peeled paint. After the colouring was done, I spritzed the whole piece with water with some pearlex in it. It's hard to see the shimmer in the picture, sentiment is cut with the Silhouette. Some bling and sponging and the card was done.
Hope you like it! Till next time, Anja

Spring flowers

Just some play time with a flower stamp.....coloured with Derwents , after colouring I put some glaze over top and when that was dry, I stamped the dots and put on some tumbled glass around.
Sentiment from Altenew, pretty easy card! Hope you like it!

A foggy day

It was quite foggy here yesterday and it inspired me to make this card with a Penny Black stamp. I added some dots with versafine and silver embossing powder. Inks from Tim Holtz, evergreen bough, peacock feathers and faded jeans.
Hope you like it, till next time, Anja
