So, as I said in my last post, I had another idea for the sketch at Freshly made sketches using some of my Altenew stamps. I love Altenew flower stamps. They are so pretty, and great to colour in. I decided to have a look and see if Altenew have a challenge blog, and yay! they do. The current challenge is 2018 Year in Review, where you can choose one of the inspiration pictures from the previous eleven months. I chose September, firstly for the inspiration colours of purple (my fave colour) and pink, and secondly because the photo is of one type of flower in different colours. I only used one flower for this card.
Here is my card
I was so pleased with how this turned out. The stamp is from the "Spring Daisy" stamp set. I stamped the daisies in a rough square, then masked off the border and coloured that in with my zigs. I am not particularly confident using zigs. I have watched this video by Kristina Werner so many times. Wow. Still, we all have to start somewhere.
So in the sketch there is a star. I decided to make this a sentiment. I heat embossed it first time on a piece of green card
but I just didn't feel it worked, so I coloured a piece of card with zig #082, and embossed the sentiment onto that instead, and liked it much better.
Before this card I started one that was going to be completely covered in different Altenew flowers with the open square coloured in, but I got half way up the card and decided to do something different with it (yep, you guessed it - next post!)
Phew! Is it just me or is this post longer than normal?
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read it all!
