close-up photos

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 ).

    Oh so pretty! I like the brush stroke look. Coloring with pencils is my absolute favorite and it helps with anxiety. Sometimes I stamp some images just to color for the sake of coloring. I’ve heard of Kathy’s color challenge before. How supportive to do a blog hop featuring her challenge. Lovely card. Thank you.

    Gorgeous card Vicky using your favourite pinks and greens. A fabulous combination I remember you used on the Book Club stamp card with the matching pink Washi Tape. Love the background. Really offsets the flowers.
