Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Coral Sunset Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey Hi All,

Welcome to Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Coral Sunset Outline Stamp Set Release Blog Hop.

SO Stoked to join Altenew for this Blog Hop

You must have arrived from the Talented Jaycee Gasper's blog.

Else if you are starting from here, I have a full blog hop list at the end of my post.

I have created two coloured variation cards using this Beautifully Detailed Floral Outline Stamp : Coral Sunset

To create this card, first I stamped the image using second generation stamping with the Altenew Limestone Crisp Dye ink

Colored the images using Graphite Lead pencils and smudged it with paper stump for the shadows. Used Yellow Colored pencil to color the floral centre. Main sentiment is stamped over the floral panel and White heat embossed sentiment strip is mounted onto the panel. This floral panel is then trimmed and foam mounted onto a black A2 sized cardbase and finished off with few clear dew droplets.

For my second card, stamped the floral outline using antique linen Distress ink and attempted the No line coloring technique over the image using Watercolor markers.

The colored panel is then fussy cut. The sentiment is stamped over a white A2 sized cardbase using Altenew Jet black crisp dye ink in such a way leaving space for the focal element.

Fussy cut floral spray then foam mounted and few clear dew droplets are added as accents. 

Hope you like my two colored version cards.
