Altenew - You inspire me...

Hello Friends,

Here I am back with a quick post. Finally I have opened the seal of my new Altenew stamp which I got last month. Thanks to Darnell for running #NBUS Challenge which always motivates me to use my stash...:)..Made this card using the colors from Altenew's January Inspiration Challenge.

To make this card:

  • I took standard size i.e.4.25 by 5.5 inches watercolor cardstock and  heat embossed the background with Ranger's White embossing powder using  Altenew "Adore You" stamp set. 
  • Colored it with Gansai Tambi Watercolors till I was satisfied ;)..and then I have used paper smooches stitched die for the background. 
  • After that, I have heat embossed the sentiment on the vellum and adhered it on the watercolor card stock.
  • Mounted the whole thing on dark brown card stock.
  • Finally added some enamel dots to finish it off.
