Happy Birthday – Altnew

P1060430 (2)Hello again

My second card for the night is this floral from Altnew – Beautiful Day with leaves from the Remember This set. I heat embossed the flowers in white embossing powder.  They are water coloured using Tombow pens, fussy cut and added to the background with dimensional tape. Of course I couldn’t help but add a little Wink of Stella to the petal turnovers.


The background was a water colour wash on the panel using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. It is finished with an Altnew Label Love sentiment and some Nuvo drop pearls.

I am entering it in the following challenges: Altnew Inspiration Challenge – June, I love Allsorts challenges!, Seize the Birthday – Anything Goes, I love spending time at Time Out Challenges and finally, Happy Little stampers – Watercolour Challenge for June.

I love how this card turned out.  I hope you do too.

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.
