Altenew- Color Throwdown Challenge 449 - CTD #449

Hello and Welcome!
Today I'm sharing a card for the current color throwdown challenge, CTD#449.
The Colors for this week are 'orange', 'green', and 'brown' shown in the image below.

And this is my take on it.
I used Altenew Products for this card. 

For the background, I made A2 sized side folded card base with white cardstock and put a Halftone stencil on it then sponged with altenew crisp dye inks : Sand Dunes, Rocky Shore, and Mocha. I gave them gradient shade from bottom to top.  

I stamped some flowers and leaves from 'Adore You' stamps set on a copic friendly white cardstock with memento black ink. I used copic markers YRs for flowers and altenew artist markers set A for leaves : G702, G715, and G554 .
For more interesting look I added some white dots over flowers using a white gel pen.

Then I fussy cut them out and placed onto the stenciled cardbase layer by layer. 
Sentiment was stamped with versafine onyx black ink.
Final touch was putting some sparkling clear sequins from pretty pink posh

That's it .

Thanks for reading this post.

Happy Weekdays!
