Altenew May inspiration challenge

Hi there!

May has provided a beautiful inspiration photo for the May inspiration challenge @ Altenew  !

My card:

Altenew Springtime azalea

Another angle:

Altenew Springtime azalea

I used 3 sets from Altenew for my card:

I started by creating the strip of color from 3 different colors of card stock and smooshing the watercolor paper with a light pink Zig marker and spritzed water .

I used the "inlaid die technique" (by lack of a better description, because technically it's not die cuts but paper cuts 😊 ) in order to have a smooth surface for stamping.

I then stamped the splatters in pink and green, and finally stamped the sentiment and outlines of the flowers with Versafine Onyx black.

Of course the stamping was made so easy with my Misti !

 I am also adding my link to:

CAS mix up  : Stamping, splattering (hope my stamped splatters are okay - if not please ignore my entry 😆 , watercolor smooshing & inlaid paper cuts.

CAS water color : Flowers

Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge : A hint of pink


Thanks for visiting me today!

I knew that I was going to see another show stopper the second I saw the inspiration colors! Yep - I was right! So cool how you stamped the images over the bocks of color! Yep - you rock!

Great card, Hannelie. I have to say, of all the elements of this card, I think I love those pink spatters the most. They add such a fun, colorful statement.

Those bright bold stripes are such a fantastic contrast to the soft, dreamy smooshing, Hannelie ... such a striking (and lovely!) card! Hugs, Anita :)

Nice idea with the inlaid papers, and a beautiful interpretation of the inspiration piece! Love how you used both pink and green splatters. Pretty!

Loll said...

Wonderful interpretation of the inspiration photo, Hannelie. I like how you inlaid the stripes so that you could stamp over top. The splatters are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up and CAS Watercolour! xx
