Pink & Green with Altenew Stamps


I am stopping by to share some cards I created with inspiration from Altenew's March Challenge Photograph.Check out these three cards and let me know what you think.

Card 1:

 It is a double fold card. I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil for the background and Persian Motifs stamps. Distress inks are used for background coloring while Prima's watercolor pencils for flowers. I love those pencils- they are soft and easily turns into watercolors with a touch of water. If you color with pencils first and add water, it creates nice gradient, almost like that can be created with Zig's Clean Clear brush markers. The sentiment is from Avery Elle's latest die set. The baker's twins hold two flaps of the card front.

Card 2: 

This one is my favorite. I used Roman Tile Embossing folder from Cuttlebug, Persian Motifs stamps set from Altenew. Distress inks and Prima Watercolor Pencils are used for coloring. Sentiments from JustRite stamps and Avery Elle die. I added flat sequins for some interest.

Card 3:

I used Spellbinder's Grate Effect die to represent texture created by well designed and manicured garden in the challenge picture. Orchids are from Oriental Orchid Stamp set and the sentiment from Label love stamp set from Altenew.

Oh I am so inspired after seeing each of these fantastic cards! I love your coloring and that you used watercolor pencils. I have no Copics and will not be getting them, so coloring is difficult at times. I really love the inking over the dry embossed background and the white on white die background. Amazing designs, off to peruse your blog. Come see me tomorrow, as I am having a little giveaway. :) Hugs, Autumn
