Flower Power

I'm back with another card using the colours of the Altenew April Inspiration Challenge, using a technique that was demonstrated by Lydia Evans from Lydia's Crafty Corner last year. I just love these diecuts and have used them in various ways ever since I got them. The  background was created with distress inks to match the colours from the challenge. This was overlaid with a panel with the flowers cut out as windows. Thank you for dropping by! Hope everyone is staying safe!

Altenew April Inspiration Challenge

I have a birthday card to share using the colours from this month's Altenew Inspiration challenge. I did some water colour backgrounds with distress and oxide inks. I then die cut flowers from the background and leaves from vellum. After adhering the patterned paper and flowers, I used the Altenew white spray to add some splatter before adding the sentiment strip, leaves and sequins to finish the card. Hope everyone is sage! Thanks for dropping by!

Easter Cards 2020

Hope everyone is well. I have three Easter cards to share. I stamped all the roses a couple of weeks ago with my Misti and then fussy cut them for a rainy day. Due to still working despite the COVID-19 restrictions, I have been rather busy on my weekends off with some much needed household maintenance and cleaning. I has lucky to have a day off this week and decided to put these flowers to good use! I was inspired by Tim Holtz Facebook Live videos over the last two weekends and decided to use my distress inks and oxides to some good use! All three cards started with some texture paste background, then a mixture of distress oxides and inks and lots of water. I used water colour card stock for the first two cards and Neenah card stock for the last one. I decided to keep the last one CAS with only just a splatter of white paint. I love the different looks of all three cards! Which one do you prefer? Hope everyone is staying home to fight this dreadful virus! Stay safe!
