Hello there. There is anew challenge beginning at The Alphabet Challenge. The letter has gone all the way down to the letter ‘W’, and Meg is hosting and has chosen ‘Anything you WISH‘.
I decided to go a new Altnew Build-a-flower stamp and die set I haven’t used yet:
It is my sister-in-law’s birthday soon, and I thought I’d get prepared.
I began by stamping the flowers from this set in a selection of colours, initially planning on making several cards.
When I started putting down the pink flowers and the green leaves and foliage – I thought the card looked a little empty, and initially thought of an ink blending or stencil and paste – but decided to go with the Altenew ‘Dotted Swirls’ debossing die – just a little more detail added to the back of the flowers.
I added the additional purple and blue flower as you see, for even more colour. The pink flowers are stuck down using 3D gel so I could move them around if I needed, and could tuck the foliage and leaves underneath.
The sentiment is also from Altenew, and I think there’s a little fault in the ‘y’ of happy – but I decided it was fine to go with it, and then die cut with the Heffy Doodle ‘More Strips of Ease‘.
I hope you can come and join us for this challenge – make anything you wish. It couldn’t be simpler, could it? I look forward to seeing what you create. xx
