Some Challenges

Happy Sunday!!

This weekend was just beautiful and had a chance to take two beautiful walks, each with a different friend. So much better on the waist then going out to eat.

I had a couple hours in the craft room yesterday and created a couple cards for some challenges. I decided that going forward I am going to try to make two cards when I get out a stamp set. I used the Altenew stamp set "Budding Thanks" for both of my cards.

I stamped the flowers with the Altenew "Shades of Purple" and "Green Fields" mini ink cubes on a white, top folding A2 card.

For the softer colored tulip, I used the Soft Lilac and Lavender Fields ink. The darker tulip was stamped with Lavender Fields and Midnight Violet.

I used a sentiment from Altenew's "Beautiful Day" stamp set in black. I could not photograph it but I covered the flowers with a clear sparkle pen and added some clear sequins.

I am entering the "Time Out Challenges: Spring," and the Altenew April 2018 Inspiration Challenge.

I used the same stamp set for my second card but instead of using just the purple shades, I used a combination of the "Rose Petal" mini cubes and "Tropical Forest" mini ink cubes. 

The left flower I used both the purple and rose colors. I originally stamped it with the pink BUT it was too light so I over-stamped it with the two lightest purples. For the purple flower I used "Midnight Violet" and "Deep Iris."

I stamped an Altenew sentiment from "Label Love" with black dye ink. I adhered it to the card with foam adhesive.

The last step was to adhere a few sequins around the sentiment.

This card was inspired by the CAS(E) this Sketch #268.

Well that is all for now. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS night!!
