Altenew Season Scene Building

I start my project today thinking about how I wanted to interpret this challenge.  
First I need some inspiration, so I turn to my stamp collection from Altenew.
I find a couple of stamp sets that spark my interest and set them aside.
I'm also watching the clock this morning because I need to pack up for the class I'm teaching today at my local scrapbook store.
My clock is silver, black and white, very simple with clean lines and a modern look.
Voila` I have my inspiration.  Now to make my final selection of stamp set.  

I decided this set was perfect

With a monochromatic color palette selected, the challenge of scene building starts out with masking paper and gray inks.

placed all stamps in Misti

Images cut out for masking

I placed all my stamps in my Misti and stamp them on masking paper.  Then I needed to cut them out.  I don't have the die set for this stamp set but I wouldn't want the white edge around them anyway, so I did pick up the scissors and started fussy cutting.

I started by stamping 2 images with the lightest gray ink

Now I need to cover the stamped images with their mask

Choosing a couple of more stamps from the set, they're placed and inked with additional colors. Mask are removed to see the results.

Now I put the mask back over the floral images in preparation of stamping the floral stems

So here's the final layout after stamping the stems and you can see I added one additional flower to the right of the stem. (kinda looks like and olive?)

I finished off my card with a simple background paper, a sentiment and a few sequins.
I love this card and the simplicity.

Thanks for stopping and sharing this exciting journey.
