Altenew ink blending with Winnie and Walter by Rachel Vass

Blending Altenew ink

Winnie and Walter


 Hi everyone

Inspiration for today’s card comes from a sketch for this months seven hills grass challenge. I used a bit of artistic license and exchanged the rectangle pieces for these lovely flourishes by my favourite things. For the background I used a beautiful stencil by Winnie and Walter called leaf effect and ink blended two of my new Altenew inks – blush and rouge.

I added some  links of grey with Copic 03 onto the stencilled leaves and then added a gorgeous flower from Winnie and Walter Addies Garden.  I used copic markers to add quick colouring and 3D foam mounted into.  To finish I used my Mini Misti and a lovely sentiment from Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone

At the moment AAA cards and Less is More have a joint challenge to create one layer card on a coloured card base. This kind of card is totally outside my comfort zone, I find it difficult not to fuss.  I hope a couple of sequins still make it one layer!

‘Lots of love’ loose watercolour flowers

Morning everyone

I have had the watercolor wonders stamp set by Altenew for a while but not got round to using it much. Definite mistake on my part, I love it. Today’s card uses a loose watercolour technique.   I smooshed distress inks onto the stamps, lightly spritzed with water and then stamped onto my Bockingford 300gsm watercolour card stock.   I then used a damp paint brush to smooth out the colour and adding drops of distressing to further highlight some areas.  Once dry I added the sentiment with 3-D foam tape,  twine, sequins and some clear wink of Stella.  My panel is mounted with 3-D foam tape onto a uk A6side folding cardbase.

Marker Pop Guest Designer Card

Altenew

The lovely Holly at Marker Pop invited me to be one of the guest designers this week with this wonderful theme:

You can choose to make a card using three of the colours and a neutral and or incorporate the theme.  I have a real lack of sea stamps (added to my wish list now, of course) so I chose to use three colours.

Here is my card.  It uses the gorgeous Altenew Celebrations stamp set.  I coloured directly on to the stamp using brown zig clean colour brush and once stamped on to watercolour paper I used other zig brushes and water to soften the lines.  It’s a lovely technique I need to practice more.

Looking forward to seeing all your entries – p.s there is a fab prize pack up for grabs too!
