Hello and Welcome!
Today I'm sharing a card for Altenew Inspiration Challenge.
Here is the challenge image by Debby Hughes.
I was inspired by the beautiful bouquet and color combinations in the photo, so here is my take on it.
In this card I tried to make a bouquet similar with that in the challenge photo, and I used three main colors in the challenge photo: Ivory, Pink, and Violet
First, I stamped peonies and leaves from peony bouquet stamps set with timholtz distress inks (antique linen, tattered rose, shabby shutters), and small flowers from garden treasure stamps set.
Then I watercolored the images using prima flowers watercolor cubes. I used timholtz seedless preserves for coloring of small flowers.
I watercolored very lightly, gave only a little bit of shades .
Then I used prisma polychromo pencils to give more shades onto the flowers and leaves.
So these are before & after.
The prisma pencil colors I used are as below :
Ivory : 927, 939
Pink : 994, 993, 1014
Violet : 1009, 934, 1026
Green : 1005, 989
Blue : 103, 1040, 1086
Yellow : 917
Background : 1023
After coloring was finished, I die-cut the image with a rectangle frame die, splattered altenew dusk metallic shimmer spray on it, and foam mounted onto a natural cardstock paper.
I chose a sentiment from beautiful quotes, stamped it on a jet black cardstock with versamark ink, and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder.
I adhered the sentiment block in the lower part of the card, and final touch was putting some clear sparkling sequins.
