Hi there! Today, Altenew is adding the Feathered Lilies to their Craft Your Life Project Kit lineup, and we’re celebrating with a blog hop! You should have arrived here from Teri Wilson and your next stop is Mindy Eggen. You can also start back at the Altenew Blog if you get lost! This month’s kit is absolutely gorgeous. The main image from Feathered Lilies is gigantic, and so, so fun to color! Here’s a peek at this month’s kit:
I love that all of the components work beautifully individually but seamlessly together. And check out how massive that coordinating die is!! Wowzers! If you are finding these kits irresistible month after month, you can always subscribe to ensure that you get first dibs on them when they’re released and, bonus, you get them at a discount with your subscription! Check out the details here. I chose to do some Copic coloring with those gigantic flowers, so let’s get started with the details!
I began this project by stamping the large main image in the corner of a white A2 card panel using Copic-friendly black ink. I was in need of some artistic “comfort food” recently, so I chose my all-time favorite Copic blend for pinks: RV99, RV69, RV17, RV09 and went to town on these huge flowers. The bigger the flower, the more fun they are to color! (If coloring isn’t your thing, the kit includes some fabulous layering stencils, as well.) I colored the foliage using BG75, YG45, YG41, G12. Don’t be afraid to mix your color families; they just take a little extra care when blending.
I die cut the finished colored image using the gigantic coordinating die. I love that they included a coordinating die for the entirety of the large image, so that you can orient it any direction you want and still have those crisp die cut edges!
I blended some Minty Mint and Sweet Leaf inks on the corner of an A2 white card base using blending brushes, then adhered the colored floral die cut using Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Having die cut the image exactly in the corner of the card made placement super simple-just match it up with the corner! I added a greeting from the Feathered Lilies stamp set using Obsidian ink. The pigment ink showed up perfectly crisp over the top of the blended ink in the corner!
Well, that’s all for my project today. Now for the giveaway details!
$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners!
