For the leaves, I have used Moss, Oolong Tea and Yellow Ochre.
For the background I used a very light concentration of Jet Black pigment.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Rose + Artists's Watercolours | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I love how this turned out! Therefore, I kept the layout very simple so the focus is on the rose.

I used Artists' Watercolours to colour the die-cuts. I used a mix of purples and pinks from the set.

After I was done colouring, I added splatters of white paint over the die-cuts.

I popped the flower and leaves onto foam tape and adhered it onto my card front.

Altenew Geometry & Nature Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 


Hello!
You must be here from Cheiron Brandon's blog.
Welcome to Altenew Geometry and Nature Blog Hop!

I have a few cards to share with you. Let's start with this colourful number first.

Altenew Colour Block Triangle Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card features the Colour Block Triangle Stencil.
I traced some of the portions of the stencil then doodled in a few areas.

Then I used Artists' Watercolour to colour my panel.

 The heart die is from the Halftone Hearts Nested Dies and I have used the Woven Stencil to dry emboss it! 
I have used the Circled Sentiments Stamp Set for my sentiment. Also, I used the Satin Gold Sequins and Gold Thread from the Altenew store.

Altenew Leaf Bed Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

The card above features the Leaf Bed Stencil that I have used to dry emboss my card panel. I used Industrial Diamond Dye Ink and the  Large Ink Blending Tool on Crest Solar White 80lbs cardstock.
The image is from the Kind Reminders Stamp Set.

The third card features the Castle Motif's Stencil
For this, I used Jet Black Dye Ink and the Large Ink Blending Tool on gray cardstock.


Altenew Castle Motif Stencil  | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

For the sentiment, I chose the Simply Thank You Die and used my Artists Markers to colour the panel then die-cut the die out of it. I also used a white layer of the same die-cut as an offset.

I inked the edges a bit with the leftover ink on the tool for interest and drama. And also added glossy accents on the sentiment!

Altenew Mighty Corners Stencil  | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

You must have already seen this one before. I shared a video for this too, you can find it HERE
This card features the Mighty Corners Stencil and I just love the look of this stencil.

Altenew Beauty of the Season Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



 

Hello!

You must be here from Laura Bassen's blog.

Welcome to Altenew September 2020 Release Hop.

I made quite a few projects to share for this hop but unfortunately, the photos didn't come out right so I will be sharing just two projects with you. Even these photos I thought were pretty dark but I couldn't take photos outside as it was raining heavily those days.


My first card features the Kind Reminders Stamp Set. I will be doing a stamp focus for this stamp soon on the Altenew blog. Do keep an eye out.

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I started by stamping the image in Permanent Black Ink. Next, I used the Kind Reminders Simple Colouring Stencil to color the image using inks from Coffee Break And Rock Collection.

How easy is colouring through these colouring stencils?! WOW. I was blown away!

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Next, I took a piece of Woodgrain Powder Cardstock and cut it out into a circle. I used one of the coffee inks to completely ink it dark brown.
I used the same Woodgrain Powder Cardstock for the card front, this time, in its original colour. Then I added a few fine black splatters. And next, I adhered the circle with foam tape and set this slightly off the edge. I snipped off the excess part of the circle.

Altenew Kind Reminders | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I popped up the image over the circle base with foam tape. Then added the sentiments and Satin Gold Sequins.
I did go back in to add details with matching Artist Markers. GAH! I couldn't stop myself! 


My next card features the Mega Hello Debossing Folder.

Altenew Mega Hello Debossing Folder | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This is such a perfect debossing folder to have if you are one who likes to whip up a quick card!

I ran the Woodgrain Powder Cardstock with the folder through my die-cutting machine and viola! That was it basically. But I thought I would add a little bit of me to this by inking up the panel slightly to make the "hello" a bit more prominent (for the photos).
I used leftover ink from the project the I shared first and lightly inked the panel.
Then I added a second sentiment and a tiny heart from the Green Fields Enamel Dots.

I think the Woodgrain Powder Cardstock did enhance the look even more. I am on my last sheet of this cardstock! YIKES! Need to get this ASAP.

I had a couple more cards featuring the Positive Vibes Stamp Set too and more inspiration using the Kind Reminders Set, but I think I will share them some other time when I will be able to take better photos.


Prizes!
