Over the months I have been adding to my Altenew goodies, having built up a healthy collection of their Alcohol Marker Pens. So I put these to good use by stamping and blending the beautiful and striking flower.
I started by using my Misti stamp positioner and stamping the flower in Altnew Sunray Crisp Die ink. Once stamped I used a selection of my alcohol markers to colour in the petals and leaves, before placing the card stock back in my Misti in the same position and re-stamping with my Versamark Glue Pad. Then I used gold embossing powder to heat emboss the image. By doing this, you can safely colour your images with alcohol markers without damaging the nibs. A lot of people are not aware that the properties in embossing powder does cause damage to the nibs, if you heat emboss first and then apply your alcohol markers. Once heat embossed, I die-cut my flowers and also die-cut a blank piece of bright green card stock, which I used to create a shadow beneath the flowers.
I have also treated myself to the Altenew Patchwork Kite Stencil and decided to use this on my card base. I used a blender brush to gently and lightly apply some Altenew Lime Crisp Dye Ink, creating a very soft and subtle background for my gorgeous Statement Flowers.
I finished up by adding a sentiment from the stamp set and adding some "splatters".
I love how this card evolved and I am thrilled with the end result.
I do hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by. I do appreciate it.
Bye for now and ..........................."happy crafting everybody!".
