Hello, hello and welcome! This week we are creating feminine cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and we would love to see your creation in our gallery. Michelle is our hostess this week.
I\’ve had my eye on the Altenew Hibiscus Garden 3D die set for sometime and finally bought it. I wanted to use seasonal jewel tones so I die cut my pieces from Altenew\’s Enchanting Washes Cardstock. I like the gorgeous colors and the fact that it is thick like cardstock. For the leaves I ink blendeded 4 colors of green on watercolor paper. My background is a light watercolor wash where I then softened the edges with a towel so it fades out. I dried the panel and then added purple and black paint spatters. Next I mixed gesso with Iridescent Shimmer Spray and added more splatters. I assembled and paired with a Bold Envelope and my birthday card is now ready to mail.
I am also playing along with:
Festive Friday FF0071 I included die cuts, patterned paper (hibiscus), flowers and sentiment.
UPDATE: I was excited to see my card was selected as a \”Festive Fave\”!
Crafty Hazel Nuts Patterned Paper Challenge I used Altenew Enchanting Washes Patterned Cardstock for the two hibiscus.
