That gorgeous flower stamp is from the Precious Peony Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I used my Altenew alcohol markers to color my image and then used the matching dies to cut it out.

For the background I used the Classy Stripes Stencil( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) with Embossing Paste( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I like to apply it randomlyand not to have a perfect finished look as I think it adds more to the look. I then applied on top Glitter – Ice White( SBC | SSS ) before the paste was dry. The glitter sticks to the paste and gives a lovely finish.

If you want to avoid the glitter mess then skip this step of use glitter paste.

The sentiment is from the Sentiment Strips Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) which is really versatile and I find I rach for it again and again for my sentiments. To finish off my card I added some RADIANT ORCHID Pearls ( SSS ).

    Absolutely love how you coloured your flowers, so I will have to buy those other Altenew markers to help with the transitioning of dark to lighter shades when colouring in the future. But what I love most of all is how you partially stenciled the panel and added the glitter.
    I guess I never realised that you can partially apply the embossing paste and achieve an awesome effect like you did, I have only ever thought of filling out the entire stencil, so thank you so much for sharing your beautiful card with us and I love your accent too.

  15. Beautifully crafted! Love adding glitter or embossing powder to texture paste! But I love the effect of the partial use of the simple stencil… beautiful coupled with the flower!

    Your background is beautiful! I should have a stencil day and just make a bunch of white on white backgrounds with texture paste (and glitter, of course!) Your flowers turned out amazing too!
