Altenew August Challenge Card


This month the August challenge at Altenew is to be inspired by this flamingo picture:


I don’t have any flamingo or bird stamps so I chose to be inspired by the colours and used the gorgeous painted flowers stamp set to create the following card.

It was my first time trying inlaid diecutting and I found it much harder than I expected.  I used fun foam for dimension but it was so squishy that it was hard to line up perfectly.

I made a few cards to practice the technique and I will show these over the next few days.


Would love to know what you think, I really appreciate your comments.

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge Make for the border ( I stamped my images like a border down one side)


And Daring Card Makers – use raspberry and lime
