Hello there. I have been playing with a new stamp set purchased from a craft show I went to in Doncaster yesterday:
These are the Daffodils from Altenew, which I have been wanting for a while, and I decided to veer away from the traditional colours, and to follow the current Color Throwdown colours of raspberry, lavender, green, and Kraft.
I stamped and heat embossed the outline of the flowers and leaves in white, then used Rich Razzleberry from Stampin Up to water-colour the flowers, and then a green for the leaves from the Altenew water-colour pan set – but I didn’t like the green water-colour leaves – too much white – so I stamped them again in just a green……just the outline…..not the filler.
I then die cut the Altenew ‘Spring Meadow‘ cover die out of Kraft card to use as a background – but again didn’t like the way it looked – too fussy behind these flowers – but I did use some of the ‘fall-out’ leaves, and then decided to die-cut it again in some lavender card-stock I had, and used the ‘fall-out’ leaves from that colour too.
I thought about a sentiment, but at this point have left the card without one – I’m not sure if I’ll add one or not………….only time will tell.
Another photo with the card in full sunlight:
I shall be entering this into the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – raspberry, lavender, green, kraft

So beautiful! I love your non traditional colours, thanks for sharing with us at Watercooler Wednesday.
Thank you Michelle 🙂
What bright and wonderful colours you’ve used for those Altenew daffodils, Linda! I love the mix of colours against the bright white of the heat embossing. Love the CAS lines of the card. I can imagine you’ll be creating many more wonderful cards with the lovely stamps. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
Thank you Heidi – I loved playing with the unusual colours 🙂
Very pretty card! Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.
