Altenew New Beginnings Stamp Set + Artist Watercolours | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I used Obsidian Pigment ink to stamp the images and the new Artists Watercolours to colour the images. The new watercolours are gorgeous you guys!! You will love them!

The watercolour set also has a "white" watercolour! How cool is that?!

To colour this, I used the watercolour brush markers by Altenew. I heat embossed the image in Golden Peach Embossing Powder.

I did some masking and stamped the Exotic Garden Stamp Set partially with Obsidian Pigment Ink. I used the Artists Watercolours to colour the image.

Altenew January 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil Blog Hop


Hello everyone!
You must be here from the Altenew Card Blog.
Welcome to Altenew January 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release.

Altenew Wild Flora Stamp + Hello and Hugs Stamp and Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @p0digy0

My card features the gorgeous Wild Flora Stamp Set.

I stamped it on regular cardstock in Obsidian Pigment Ink. Next, I fussy cut the entire image and set it aside.

To create a colourful band, I masked off top and bottom areas and used multiple yellows and pinks inks for ink blending. Once I was done, I removed the masks and glued down the fussy cut image.
I also added tons of splatters before adhering the die-cut word "Hello" and accompanying sentiment from Hello and Hugs Stamp and Die Set.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Poppy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello everyone!
Welcome to Paint-A-Flower: Poppy release!

You must be here from the Altenew Card Blog.




  Here is a look at what I created.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Poppy Stamp Set + Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the flower with Permanent Black Ink and coloured it with Artist Markers from Set A.

I stamped the image directly on Crest Solar White Cardstock and for faux dimension added shading with a graphite pencil. I cut the panel out in a way that the flower overhung a bit over the glitter layer.
That glitter layer, by the way, is the gorgeous Silver Glitter Tape from the Altenew Store.

The polka dot paper is from Essential Rock Collection (6x6).
To finish, I added some dots with a black pen and on the flower center, I added some detailing with a white gel pen.
