I made a scene card. Of course. No one is shocked by this. haha. I just really loved the different sized images and new it would be great for a perspective card. 


I started by stamping the smaller collection of poppies towards the bottom of my card. I extended the stems with a black pen as I wanted them to be a little taller. Once that was complete I ink blended on some blue and green distress ink to set the scene. 
Who isn't ready for some blue skies and sunshine, am I right?! 


I colored the smaller poppies with just my alcohol markers and then set the panel aside. I then used the largest image in the set and stamped it twice o a seperate piece of white cardstock. 

I colored all of them with a light red/pink as the base of my flowers and a light green for my stems. For a few of the colors I also shaded them completely with my alcohol markers. 


Once the marker portion was complete I went back in with my colored pencils and added even more dimension! Combining the two mediums allows a much more realistic look. I used the coordinating die cuts to cut them out and then clustered them on the right side of my cardstock to give them the appearance of being in the forground while the smaller flowers fall to the background. 

Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful mind behind this set Maria Willis. I know she'll have something amazing in store for you! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Today I used the adorable Adventure Awaits set along with some of the new super cute pattern paper. The mirror technique let me switch up my images so I could use them together in this sweet little scene. 


I started stamping my suitcase bunny on a piece of acetate. You don't need anything fancy, in fact for this one I just used the protective sheet for the stamp packaging. Once your image is stamped, turn it over and stamp in directly down onto your cardstock. Hold it in place with one hand and gently rub/press with the other. This tranfers the image. It is fairly light so I like to use a copic safe pen to trace over the lines. 

 
I only need to flip one image for them to be facing each other and then I started coloring. I used two different gray families to color my bunnies and my metal objects to keep them seperated. I chose a fun pink to go with my blue and green background. It merries well as it's still pastel but it's a nice bright spot of color in otherwise neutral images. 


I added some ink blending to the edges of pattern paper to create a highlight in the center. A few green copic markers created a nice shadow to ground my images. I trimmed them out by hand since I used the mirror technique and the dies would no longer fit my suitcase bunny. 


Both images were popped up on foam with a sweet but simple sentiment. 
You can watch the entire card from start to finish in the video below. 




Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Kim Boliver

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Altenew Paint-A-Flower Clemantis & Artist Alcohol Marker's Release Blog Hop!

Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 03/02/2021.



There's just somewthing I love about gold and purple together. How about you? 
I started with a piece of solid purple cardstock but you can certainly start with white cardstock and build up the intensity. 


I stampd the Clematis in Altenew's Enchanted Gold pigment ink and then heat set it in gold embossing powder. I used the embossed resist technique to add more instense color to the background. I selected a few purple color inks and began ink blending them towards the center. I left the center lightest to draw the eye directly to the center. 


To finish off the image I used a clear glitter to highlight just the flowers in the stamped image. 
This card is simple but striking and easy to mass produce. 


I am the last stopon the hop today! Thank you so much for joining us. 
In case you missed any stops on the hop you can check out the entire list below. 


I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
