Rose Flurries Monochrome

Hello again. I am still creating as part of the Altenew 3D Floral Focus course, and this card is for Day 2 of that course:

Day 2 is about monochrome, and I feel even though the background die is quite complicated, the card itself has a clean and simple feel about it.

I first die-cut all the images from the Altenew 3D Rose Flurries out of white, then decided to cut a few more layers out of the light brown/kraft card and played around with the layers until I was happy. I did originally plan for three flowers, but I am pleased how this turned out with one flower.

I’ll just have to make another card – or two – with the remaining flowers!

I’ve also been trying Day three – using in-lay on the dies – but am really, really, struggling to get that right – I’ll keep at it – you may get to see an end result – but you may not!!!!

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Daisy Chain Challenge – Monochrome

Peony Dream multi-colours

Hello there. My weekend didn’t go according to plan, so I have been at home – therefore time to craft. I am taking the Altenew 3D Floral Focus course, and have already created cards for the first couple of days. I am sharing a couple of cards I made based on the first day:

a different angle for each:

I used a Catherine Pooler stencil and some Cosmic Shimmer paste – one in a pearl white, and the other in gold for the background. I have had these pastes for absolutely years – and they still looked brand new and juicy in the pots.

The flowers are die cut using the Altenew 3D Peony Dream die-set, in a variety of different colours. I played around with the images and layers until I was happy with the colour combination, added some of the leaves from the same set, and even added some Tim Holtz leaf die-cuts too.

I must say – I would never have put these colours together – not in a month of Sunday crafting days (!!) – but I think they work.

Thank you so much to Altenew and Therese Calvird for the inspiration – and it’s Day One!!!!
