Vintage Roses

Good Morning,

I've been having another play with my Altenew stamps and a bit of masking

I inked the edges and used the same ink to add a few splatters which I added glossy accents to.

It's a Beautiful Day!

Good Morning,

Been having a play with my Altenew stamps I brought a while ago.
I'm definitely going to use them again.

Altenew beautiful day flowers & leaves were stamped with a black outline then 3 coloured layers added for flowers and 2 for leaves. All were cut out leaving a small white border and arranged onto card using foam pads to give dimension. The sentiment, from the same stamp set was then stamped directly onto the card in black. I was pleased with the outcome some decided to make another one.

This time I stamped the images with versa mark and heat embossed with a fine white powder. i then added the layers in yellows and pink memento inks. Sentiment is from the vintage florals set & stamped in black. A glittered butterfly was added for a bit of sparkle. 
Don't know which colour combo I like best.

Have a nice day!
