Having recently received a new die set from Altenew, I decided to play with it:
I die cut all the layers for the flower out of previously made Distress Ink smooshing pieces of card. The leaves were die cut from a panel I had created during a virtual mixed media class with Seth Apter, and I’ve been waiting for a time to be able to use that piece – lots of inks, even glitter paint, and texture paste which I think shows up on the second photo.
If I remember rightly, we also did a lot of scoring and scratching into that panel, used a few of his inks and pastes – and it created an overall shiny piece of card.
Onto a white card base I stuck down a panel embossed using a Spellbinders embossing folder recently received as part of the Maker Mania 5 weekend.
I then splattered Distress Oxide sprays onto it to match the colours of the flower.
I stuck together all the layers of the flower and leaves and created the spray as you see.
The sentiment is from an older MFT stamp set. As I had stamped the sentiment in black, I added some black enamel dots to the background to bring it all together.
I shall be entering the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – add a die cut
