Hi there, I hope you’re having a great weekend!
Today I’m playing with a new floral set as well as some older sets from Altenew. I love the versatility of Altenew’s layering flower sets which you can stamp in layers for beautiful dimension or color by hand, which I did today.
I started by stamping the base layer of the flowers from the Floral Art stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Then, instead of using the layering stamps, I used Copic BV01, BV02, BV04, and BC08 to color them in. As usual, I started by laying down the lightest color and the went back in adding darker and darker colors. I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut out the images and set them aside.
For the background, I used the large patterned stamp from the Rustic Linen stamp set to create a subtle texture in Altenew Morning Frost ink on an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White. It’s hard to tell in the photos, but the pattern adds some nice interest to an otherwise white background. Then, I used leaves from the Floral Art set to stamp around the edges of the background in Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades Altenew inks.
I created the small frame using the Fine Frames Rectangles die set, also from Altenew. I colored the largest frame with BV01 and then positioned it over the background. I used a pencil to lightly mark the top right corner of the frame, to help me position the sentiment.
The sentiment is from Altenew Pinstripe stamp set. The words are in one line so I masked off each word so that I could stamp in two lines. I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
To assemble the card, I first adhered the fine frame using a Zig 2-way Glue Pen and then I used glue to adhere the flowers. Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thanks for coming by!
