Altenew - All My Love


I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, wherever you may be.
For today's post I'm using the Altenew Garden Treasures stamp set again, but this time I changed things up a bit.

No masking this time, instead, I stamped out lots of flowers individually with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and coloured them with my Zig Markers.

I don't have the matching dies for this set so I fussy cut them all out by hand.
It took a bit of time but it was quite relaxing and very worth it in the end.

I set all my flowers aside and started to work on my panel. I used some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and blended Distress Oxide Inks in Cracked Pistachio and Broken China, with a blending tool. Then I took the Moroccan Lattice Stencil from MFT Stamps and blended through a little Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink in the centre part of my panel.

I sprinkled a few water droplets and spayed some gold glimmer mist and blotted and dried. Then I took some gold watercolour paint and splattered on some drops using a paintbrush. 
Once completely dried I cut it out with a large rectangle die from MFT Stamps Blueprints 20 and added it to a white top folding A2 card base.
 For the frame I took 2 oval dies and taped them inside one another on a piece of white cardstock and  flicked on some more gold watercolour paint, then cut a narrow strip of foam tape to pop it up on my card. 

I then took a piece of Boysenberry Lustre cardstock, cut it out with a banner die from the same Blueprints 20 die-namics, and gold embossed a sentiment from MFT Stamps' 
You Give Me Butterflies sentiment set. 

I arranged all my flowers where I wanted them around the frame and popped some of them up on foam tape. I added the banner sentiment with a little foam tape and finally I added a few sequins from different selections, to match the colours of the card.

I really love the way this card turned out and hope that you do too.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
