I had just received some Altenew sets and included in my order was Persian Motifs. Now, I have to admit that this set intimidates me because there are some absolutely stunning cards out there using this set, not least of which those made by my blogging friend, Marika.
Anyway, I decided to have a go with this set and came up with this watercolored card:
I used distress inks and a paintbrush to color, so it's quite loose with not a lot of shading. Once I'd finished coloring the sheet of watercolor paper, I then used a curved die to cut it into two.
I then went looking through my collection for a long but small sentiment and found one in Clearly Besotted's Sweet Little Sentiments set. I placed it on my stamp press and laid the die next to it. I then curved the stamp around the die before stamped it onto the card base.
The colored panels are popped up with foam tape to give some added interest.
Thanks for visiting. The rest of the design team have some CAS beauties to inspire you, so be sure to head over there and check them out.
