Hi! I'm back with another card for a few challenges. This card is for the Altenew challenge, Krafty Chicks ATG challenge, Addicted to CAS who have Emboss as their code word and Happy Little Stampers January Watercolour Challenge.
I don't watercolour very often but had the urge to do something a bit looser than Copic colouring and so pulled out my Zig markers to colour up this gorgeous Altenew stamp. Once I was finished, I fussy-cut the image and set it aside to work on the card base.
Firstly I splattered Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks onto a white card base using Perfect Pearls spray to dilute the inks. When the ink was dry, I ran it through my die-cutting machine with the Subtle embossing folder.
I was totally inspired by the graphic in the Altenew challenge to add stripes to my card. To most closely match what I saw as the darkest colour, I used the Direct to Paper technique to add Aged Mahogany oxide ink onto a strip of Bristol Smooth paper. Once it was dry, I die-cut it, along with some Cotton Candy, Razzle Berry and Black cardstock with the Slim Stripes dies by Pink Fresh. I used Rose Gold embossing powder on the Razzle Berry strip and embossed the words Thank You. I then adhered all the strips onto the card base and finished with the flower, which is popped up on foam tape.
