Thanks for joining our Educators Blog Hop today. I am honored and blessed to be part of this talented group of designers.
You should have landed here from Nenette S. Madero's blog. If not please go back and see her inspiration.
We were asked to share a project focusing on flowers for this blog.So who doesn't love flowers and isn't that what Altenew is all about?
My first project uses flowers as the focal on the card. I love the Ornate Cover Die which can stand alone, but I wanted to add the accent flowers from the Hennah Elements stamp and die set. One of my other loves from Altenew are the 6 X 6 paper packs. The Celestial pack was perfect for this project to add a background under my cover die.
Using vellum I stamped the sentiment from the Crystal Frames Stamp and Die set. My flowers were stamped and then I used Honey Drizzle and Forest Glades Crisp dye ink the brush the edges with color. My finishing touch was enamel dots from the Pocketful of Sunshine set.
My next project sticks with my love of 'Black' and my first try using
I used Stonehenge Black watercolor paper and loved the result. Using the Build-A-Flower Japanese Mum, the image was embossed first which I'm not totally sure was necessary. I love to watercolor and will be pulling these out again soon to play.
I started out by using the Circle Quilt Cover Die over my card front. It's very hard to see in the picture, but I used the Altenew Birchwood paper under the die.
The sentiment is from the Hello & Hugs die set, which has quickly become my favorite.
To finish off the project I placed gems on the background.
This last project I share is a card that I have previously posted. It features the Build-A-Flower Camellia with the sentiment coming from the Build-A-Flower Anemone set. I used the large flower for the focal point and the flower image to make a subtle background print. I love to use black in my projects so once again that makes the images 'pop'. Altenew Crisp Dye inks used are Coral Bliss and Fresh Leaf.
This card is a total reflection of my style so I wanted to share one more time.
Now for the fun stuff!
