We all need some encouragement in our lives and especially if we need some courage to face difficulties. I've used Copics to colour a circle floral die cut, which I then cut to use just 2 smaller pieces.
I can't get enough of the watercolour flower set from Altenew. I could spend all day trying out different colour combinations.
I wanted to combine a cornflower blue with a purple, but Distress Inks don't have that blue. First I tried with Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire, but it is rather sombre. So not all combinations work the way you envisaged!
So then I gave up using the ink and spritz technique and went with layers and the Altenew inks.
I'm a tea drinker! Love my pot of tea at least twice a day. My mother bought me a beautiful Royal Doulton Memory Lane tea set for my engagement present all those years ago. I'm so happy that I still have the full set and you can imagine how much I love it as I love blue so much.
So my card is inspired by this pretty set.
I've used the largest Hero Arts tea cup die, and got a little sneaky by using the MFT bowl die, from Bedside Comfort set, to cut out the handle space. You can see it better on my second card below. The roses (Altenew Vintage Teacup set) were stamped in a soft blue and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils in the no line colouring method.
I have been waiting for this Kind Soul set from WPlus9. It was so popular that it was sold out in no time. You may be seeing more cards with these flowers soon - just love them. Coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
Time for cake! This week's CASology challenge is CAKE. Who can resist a good cake? What is your favourite? I think mine is carrot cake, or my grandmother's Cinnamon topped cake. Coloured with Prismacolor Pencils.
I added Liquid pearls to make some delicious looking frosting, and layered the cake to give dimension.
You can always get more inspiration from our gifted design team ...
Playing with Altenew stamps, stencils and dies for the Altenew September Challenge. I cut two dies of the flower. I used one to stamp the flower, and the other I coloured the left bottom edges grey with Copics. I glued them offset to create a shadow. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
I had a small strip of the rainbow paper I had painted for this card, so when I saw the Time Out Challenge, it was perfect starting point. I loved Bev's inspiration card, and her new card. I focused on her rainbow colours in stripes, floral image and white space.
