Altnew – You’re So Special

Thank you so much to Stamping Sensations for voting my card second in their Spring Challenge. Also Allsorts Challenge for selecting my card in Top 5 for their Feminine Challenge. I really appreciate the wonderful support and encouragement from everyone.

Hello and welcome

I decided to create a card for the Altnew Inspiration Challenge for March.

To begin I added some light Speckled Egg Distress Ink sprayed with a little water on Altnew – Enchanting Vines EF. It gave a lovely soft look to the background, before being layered on the card front.

Altnew – Inked Lotus was white heat embossed and watercoloured with soft Tombow ink.

The sentiment is from the Lotus stamp set too.

I was happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a good day and stay safe!

Today’s card uses on of my very old wood block stamps from when I first started stamping, Garden Friends.

After stamping, the image was copic coloured and fussy cut.

The card front was covered with some pretty floral DP.

A panel of card was then embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and layered onto the card front.

As I love the message on the stamp I decided not to add another sentiment.

Over the holidays I had fun playing with some alcohol inks.

This panel uses alcohol inks on clear yupo paper . The panel is then flipped to give a softer look before adding to the card front.

I die cut Memory Box Shewsbury Stem twice, once from white and once from black card and layered on the front.

The Hello die from Memory Box was die cut twice, stacked and added along with the white heat embossed sentiment from Altnew – PenSketch Flowers stamp set.

A few Studio Katia sequins finished the card.

For my card I chose to make a birthday card which usually sends lots of love.

After stamping PB – Blooming Boots stamp, I stamped the tuplips again so I could add some dimension. They images were then Distress ink watercoloured and fussy cut.

Glossy Accents was added to the boots to give them the shine I thought they should have.

The tulips were then added on top the of the original stamping using raised tape and some Wink of Stella added.

PB – Simple Stackers die set was layered up and added to the black card front.

The sentiment is from PB – Sprinkles & Smiles stamp set.
