Hello : take 1

Hi there!

Just popping in to show you what I created today !

Photo inspiration from the Altenew January challenge , and technique challenges from Happy little stampers January watercolor challenge (without the optional twist)  and Anything goes with dies.


Here it is:

Altenew Golden Garden

Up close:

Altenew Golden Garden

I used the Altenew Golden Garden set, stamped with Vintage photo & Mustard seed, and also water colored with the same 2 colors.

The hello sentiment is from the Floral Frame set, also by Altenew.

I was mostly inspired by the colors from the photo , and the abundance of beautiful flowers!

To add interest I added an inlay die cut frame in gold glitter paper using the rectangle pinpoint dies from Memory Box.

 As the title of this post indicates, there is another card on its way using the frame that was the result of the inlay die cutting I did for this card!

Stay tuned!

Thanks for looking!

I like the idea of an inlaid frame, like you have added to your card. It really helps focus the eye on the greeting. Beautiful card!

O, ek is mal oor daai blommetjies en blaartjies en hoe subtiel jy dit geverf het, vrou!!!! Die goue raam is lieflik en alhoewel die sentiment klein is, staan dit pragtig uit!!!! So mooi!!!!!
