Raspberry Daffodils

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.

  1. 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.
