I have wanted the BEAUTIFUL scrapbooking kit by Altenew for months and I finally treated myself by ordering it. It is amazing and I LOVE it. This kit even comes with a pretty storage box to keep everything together. To break it in, I created this fun card for the Altenew card challenge.
The flowers were fussy cut from Altenew's scrapbook paper (although you can get the same look using Altenew's Bamboo Rose stamp set) and colored with Zig Clean Color markers. The high quality of the Altenew paper worked well with the watercolor markers; you can see the smooth, even blended color. The blue, zig zag background paper also comes in the Altenew scrapbooking kit. The sentiment is from Altenew's Celebrate stamp set placed on a tiny punched tag.
Depth was added by embossing the background with a Darcie folder, layering up the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle diecut and adhering 3L Foam Squares to the back of the frame & some of the flowers.
To bring in some sparkle gold thread, Enamel Accents and Stickles were added. I also brought in cheesecloth for a little more texture.
