Altenew Inspiration challenge.

Hi there!

I feel like a child with a new toy... just can't get enough of my new Altenew stamps. And I have only opened one of the 4 sets I bought last week! Yes, can't believe I'm saying it.... the "Silhouette girl"!

... but what is more fun than stamping ... it's getting help from the Silhouette to do the 'fuzzy cutting' !  Because fuzzy cutting is just. not. for. me!

So here's my second card using the smallest flower from the Henna Elements set.

A closer look at the dimension:

I stamped the flower, scanned it and imported the image to my Silhouette studio . Just traced it with a small offset to create a cut file. I cut multiple flowers to keep for future projects.

I stamped the flowers with Versafine black ink afterwards and colored it with my Promarkers.

The sentiment is from The digi chick.

My card was inspired by the photo May Park provided for the September challenge at the Altenew blog.

I was inspired by :
  • The stripes in the background.
  • The round shape of the bowl holding the washi tape, as well as its position on the lower part of the  photo.
  • The colors red, yellow and blue.                                                     

Thanks for visiting me!

Have a great week!

Yay! This is one Silhouette technique (and likely THE only one) that I have tried and it is soooooo cool! Who needs dies?

Awesome colors and cool design - love how you swooped the images to create a dip in the middle and popped them up for some lovely depth :)
