Altnew – Beautiful Lady

P1060325 (2)I’m back to share this card I made using Altnew’s Beautiful Lady stamp set.

Last week I was playing with some stencils using Distress Inks. When I had finished I decided to   spray the top of the stencil with water and place a piece of card stock on top.  I was delighted with the effect I was left with.  This inspired me to use it on this card.

I heat embossed the flower image and water coloured it using Distress Inks.  I finished it with some green and white Baker’s twine and some Nuvo drops.

I was happy with the way it turned out and pleased to see I could enter it in the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #342, CAS Mix Up May Challenge – Stamping + Splattering + Your Choice, as well as the All the Little Things #5 Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
