Good morning! Stopping by this morning to share a card I made using some beautiful Altenew stamps:
I made this for Altenew's April Challenge: From Places Abroad - China:
Also joining in with this weeks CAS-ology Challenge - Ombre:
I was inspired by the colors and patterns on the roof from the Altenew Challenge, as well as those red pillars. I started off by using some Heidi Swapp Color Shine to add a gold wash to my background on some watercolor paper, as well as a few bigger splatters. After that dried, I stamped some florals from Persian Motifs in some softly colored MFT dye ink - LOVE the subtle texture this gives! Next, I stamped the ombre thanks from Halftone Thanks on vellum and heat embossed. To get that color, I inked it up with watermark ink, then inked over the top with the MFT dye ink color I wanted, stamped, and heat embossed with clear powder. I fussy cut it out (since I don't have the coordinating dies!), and attached it with a line of machine stitching. Finished off by adding the little sentiment from Persian Motifs, and a few Pretty Pink Posh Tangerine sequins.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
