Updated Post – Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

Hello…I’m sharing a new picture of my card that I had shared earlier….I wasn’t able to get a better picture that day, so I tried again….and the colours in today’s picture turned out much closer to the actual colours on my card..

I have tried so hard to click a better picture of my card so I could share the actual colour of the Ranunculus flower on my card, but it keeps showing as a yellowish colour when in fact it’s a green colour quite similar to the one in the inspiration photo….

This is the inspiration photo and colours provided for the June Challenge…I haves used the three colours provided but gave them a bit of a twist by using green as the flower colour, the grey as the leaves and the rose pink/lavender colour for the background…
I started by creating the front panel of my card…I applied rose red and blush rose Peerless watercolours to a watercolour piece of cardstock and set it aside to dry…once dry I added some splatters of the same colours and then adhered this panel to a plain white card base…
On a separate piece of watercolour cardstock, I stamped the flower and leaves with watermark ink and heat embossed them with a white embossing powder…I then used a couple of Altenew crisp inks and a water brush to colour in these images…I have used bamboo for the flower and silver stone for the leaves…once dry, I die cut these images and adhered them to my card…

Then I die cut the word ‘you’ three times from black cardstock using the Altenew fine alphabet dies…I layered the die cuts and added them to my card just above the embossed sentiment strip which completes the sentiment for my card…
To embellish my card I have added some black Nuvo drops and applied some shimmer using my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen…

Altenew Ranunculus – Love & Hugs

After using the Nuvo gold mousse for a few cards in which I tried out a paint like consistency and even thick consistency like an embossing paste,I wanted to try something ‘in-between’…so that was the idea for the background panel for this card…the main flower image is from the Altenew build-a-flower Ranunculus set…

I have two background panels for this card…there is a black panel on which I have embossed repeatedly with stitched border edge die and then I have a smaller kraft cardstock panel on which I  first die cut with a scalloped edge die and then used the grid stencil and Nuvo mousse to create this slightly textured look…I layered these two panels and adhered them to a Kraft cardstock card base…
I stamped the two flowers and leaves on a separate piece of white cardstock using the Altenew crisp die inks…for the first flower I used cotton candy,purple wine and puffy heart shades and for the second one I used peach perfect,coral berry and cosmic berry inks…I die cut them and adhered them to the card front…

I gold heat embossed the sentiment on a black rectangular label and layered it with a slightly larger red layer and adhered it to the card front…I have used a piece of back craft foam underneath for a bit of dimension…
To embellish my card I have applied just a few Nuvo gold drops…
I’m super glad you stopped by to take a look at my card today….Hope you will have a beautiful day ahead…!!
