I'm In Love


In My Thoughts

So I must admit that when this stamp set from Altenew came out I hesitated to pick it up.  I wanted everything in the new release and was trying to be selective.  Well....I have to say this set will be one of my favorites.  It is so easy to layer and makes a gorgeous 'one layer' card, but as you can see I couldn't stop myself and used foam tape.

This past week the flowering tree's have started to bloom here in Iowa and they are gorgeous pinks and whites.  Using Altenew Espresso ink for the trunk and then I layered Mango Smoothie, Peach Perfect and Cotton Candy for the foliage.  I love how the layering of the lighter ink has enhanced the lines in the tree trunk.
I used the coordinating die to cut out the image.  Wanting to create something similar to the eclipse effect, I used some glitter paper behind the image and then shifted the tree just a little to the right.
I used foam tape to lift the image slightly.

The finishing touch was Nuvo Drops in Orange Soda.


Thanks for stopping by today.


Blessing,
