Hi Friends!!

Today's post is about a card using my new stampset from Altenew. Its my most favorite stampset - Lacy scrolls. Its my first ever purchase of stampset and of course, first ever entry for their monthly challenge :)

This is the card for the Feb challenge at Altenew - From places abroad, Cyprus.

The inspiration pic below for my card :)

I took inspiration from the colors in the pic.

To interpret the wall with rustic look, i took a cream colored texured cs and smooshed Momento Toffee crunch inkpad directly on the cs vertically. It take the look of what i expected.

 Then for the iron wrought designs on door, i took a royal blue cs, diecut the swirly frame using Marianne designs frame die.

Then for the mid design of the door, took Lacy scrolls stamp set, flowers were stamped using black archival ink on a cream cs and leaves, swirls using momento tuxedo black. Then fussy cut and mounted using foam adhesives on the blue frame.

Just a bit of shimmer needed for which wink of stella clear is used on the whole stamped floral spray. Below pic will show the subtle shimmer on the petals :) (Hard to capture though!)

IBS Sentiment was stamped on a cream cs and fussy cut and mounted on blue frame using foam adhesive.

Hope you like this simple card using my fave stampset :)
