Good morning! I’m so excited to be a stop on the Altenew Crafty Friends blog hop! This is such an amazing community and I am honored to be part of it! I’ve been crafting since I was a kid but blogging and crafting “publicly” since 2014! I discovered Altenew shortly after I started blogging and I fell in love with their gorgeous floral designs, layering stamps, and ink pads! You can find one of my very first Altenew cards here! 😉
For today’s card I decided to do a little no-line coloring with my luminance colored pencils! Here’s what I created!
To start I stamped the flower from Sweetest Peas with barely beige ink and colored them with luminance pencils. I used a variety of pinks for the petals and warm greys for the stem. After I finished coloring I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the image. I stamped a sentiment from the same set onto red cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Then I trimmed the cardstock down to an angled label.
Next I stamped more of the flowers onto dark grey cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold tinsel embossing powder. I used a trick from Debby Hughes and splattered a little water on the panel and sprinkled the drops with the same gold tinsel embossing powder. As long as you don’t let too much time go by the embossing powder will stick to the water just the same as versamark or versafine! I love the look of that gold embossing powder on grey! I adhered the sentiment label with regular adhesive and then used foam mounting tape for the flower for a little more dimension!
And that’s it!
