I had to play along with the challenge over at Virginia's View Challenge #23 for two reasons: (1) I need to let go and be brave more often, and (2) she said the magic word, "Altenew".
I love Altenew florals but, as I've said many times before, they are work-intensive. And here Virginia is not only encouraging us to use their stamps, but then to go risk ruining all that hard work by adding spray mists and splatter. :) Just wow! But I did it ...
I used the Altenew Watercolor Wonders stamp set for the flowers, along with Winnie & Walter The Big The Bold and The Happy for the sentiment. I used a combination of pigment and dye inks (Fresh Ink Pink Lemonade, Melon, Strawberry; PTI Spring Moss, Saffron Spice, Smokey Shadow). I really like pigment inks for stamping layers when I want true colours and not "new" colours.
After stamping, I bit the bullet and splattered on some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine mist, concentrating it on the bottom half of my card. You'll notice that I got a blob on my sentiment but somehow it doesn't bother me. :) I finished up by trimming out my panel with one of the MFT Inside & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle dies and called it a day.
Thanks for sponsoring such a fun challenge, Virginia!
