Hi there! I have a quick post to share today… Erica (@erica_cacacraft) and Norine (@norinehope) are having a fun hop over on Instagram with some crafty friends to try to get them both over the 10k follower mark! We are celebrating all things Altenew with this hop, and the folks at Altenew have generously donated prizes to further entice people (as though the beautiful projects weren’t enough ;)). I have a clean and bold project using one of my favorite Altenew sets: Statement Flowers. Let’s get started with the details!
For this project, I did some no-line coloring using Ink on 3 Fadeout Ink and my Copic markers. I absolutely love this mauve-y color scheme. I stamped the large floral cluster from Statement Flowers on some Copic-friendly white cardstock with the Fadeout Ink, then colored the image using Copic markers, finally die cutting the image using the coordinating die.
On the white A2 card base, I blended some Pale Mauve and Grape Agate inks in the bottom right corner using blending brushes. I added a delicate die cut Hello cut from some more white cardstock. The soft blending is just enough contrast to help this delicate die cut stand out while still maintaining subtlety. I also stamped a greeting from Sentiment Strips 2 using Plum ink on a thin strip of white cardstock.
I adhered the Statement Flowers die cut to the blended card front using foam adhesive, then added the Hello die cut using liquid adhesive, placing the Sentiment Strip beneath using more foam adhesive. The final touch was some iridescent white gems to add some sparkle.
Well, that’s all for this post! The giveaways from Altenew and Jennifer McGuire are happening over on Instagram, so be sure to head over to my Instagram to find the hop list if you haven’t found it already! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous weekend!
