Altenew February 2020 Stencils/Decals/Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello!
Welcome to Altenew February 2020 Stencils/Decals/Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop.
You must be here from Nathalie DeSousa's blog.

I will be sharing two cards with you today.

First up is the card featuring the Bursting Dahlia Stencil

Altenew Bursting Dahlia Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I outlined the pattern with a permanent black pen and watercoloured it using the new Artists' Watercolours. Once the panel was dry, I fussy cut the pattern out and popped it on the card front. Before adhering it onto the card front, I also added a few black paint splatters. 
To finish, I adhered a sentiment strip that runs along the width of the card.

My second card features the Wild Leopard Stencil.

I applied black gesso through the stencil and then after removing the stencil, I poured over black glitter generously. 
Next, I stamped and heat embossed the onesie from Little One Stamp Set and popped it on the card front with foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used "congrats" from the Script Words Die Set.

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.

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

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.
