happy me with Altenew

Hello frens,

Long time,yes I got busy with lot of other personal things in the last month but each day I was crafting,maybe little less than usual days..I am sure all crafters will agree with me..FOR us crafting is real OXYGEN..hehh.

Now coming back I have beautiful card made with Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamp set.I have also used Altenew Happy die for sentiment.Sharing a quick picture of my card with a close up pic as well.





While I sat down to start after a break,i really needed an inspiration dose and what best than Altenew August challenge Inspiration.I have always admired Erum's work and her coloring skills.Sharing the picture of the challenge along with the link



I loved the unusual color combination.For my card I kept color theme as my inspiration.My base cardstock is kraft cardstock giving me a nice brown background.I have heat embossed the flowers with gold embossing powder and then used alcohol ink for coloring.For this card i tried creating splatters through heat embossing techniques only.

The sentiment is die cut from Altenew happy die on a gold cardstock.The right hand border is also done on gold cardstock with the help of border punch.Lastly added some cup sequins and my card is done.

This one looked much more beautiful in real than what you can see in picture.Maybe I was not able to capture real gold and green effects.

Attaching this card to current challenges:

Thank u for visiting.

Happy crafting.

Altenew Wild Hibiscus

Today I have a beautiful card for u all,I am playing along Altenew April-2017-inspiration-challenge .This month has been quite busy.I saw the inspiration pic on the altenew blog some 10 days back and since then it has been on my mind..Let me show you my card.I simply loved the colors I have used and what makes it my favorite is its beautiful flowers.


I have used Altenew Wild Hibiscus Stamp set for flowers.On white base cardstock I have done heat embossing with light golden embossing powder.I have combined stencil work with heat embossing.Then I stamped my flowers on a pattern paper and have fussy cut them.On the white cardstock I have also done shades with the help of distress inks.Behind I have used a handmade paper as cardstock and did same flower stamping with Archival black Ink by using masking techniques.Attached all together and added a teal blue organza ribbon to the bottom of the card.

Let me show you some close ups of this beauty.
