White and Kraft - Runway Inspired

Hello everyone!!
Made a new card today inspired by the RIC.

Here is what I made.

I used Altenew's Peony Scrolls on my card. Heat embossed these beauties on vellum, colored them using white Faber Castell classic pencil and then began the fussy cutting! PHEW
I stamped a couple of flourishes on the card too to ground the fussy cut flowers and add more dimension. Added a gazillion paint splatters to gel everything together and finished the card with some sequins. 
That's it from my side today.
Hope you have a great weekend!

The background has been watercolored using distress inks, those flowers I doodled and fussy cut them out.

Watercoloring my heart out!

Watercolored Altenew Peony Scrolls
So this started with The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. ALL that has been fussy cut!
I heat embossed Peony Scrolls by Altenew to watercolor using distress inks for the challenge.
Shared the photo above on Instagram and BAM came the likes and comments!
I broke a record for the number of likes and Altenew shared my photo!! 
*dancing like a lunatic*

I made four cards out of the flowers I watercolored. The sentiments are also from Altenew.

Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Hello everyone!
A bit late to the party but I thought I'd play along the Coffee Lovers  Blog Hop!
I don't have any coffee stamps but I absolutely LOVE coffee.
I used the freebie provided by Verve Stamps for my card.

Verve Stamps Latte Love

I edited the sentiment digi stamp in Photoshop and converted it into a chalkboard label but I forgot to edit the solid white and make it more chalky. Happens when you are trying to make a card at 1am!
For the background I used distress ink to watercolor and added a lot of black splatters to go with my chalkboard label. 
The heart is hand drawn, inked with peacock feathers and then glittered. The flower too has been inked and glittered. Added a twine bow behind it, cant complete a fall card without twine.. no no.
I added a few sequins for wee more sparkle, I hope they are visible. 
That's it! I hope you like my card.
