A Year In Review Inspiration Challenge


Altenew Beautiful Day stamp watercolored using distress inks

Playing along with Altenew's "A year in review" challenge. I picked Amy's inspiration board (June 2016). I have always loved it and wanted to try it.
Here is my take on it.

Altenew Beautiful Day stamp watercolored using distress inks



Beautiful Day stamp set is watercoloured using distress inks. The stripes on the base are also watercoloured. I fussy cut the flower and added it on a foam tape. 
I added a few diamante to the flowers on the vine for a little bling.
Hope you like it!
hugs,
Erum

Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia


Hello everyone!!!!
I am one of the stops today, i.e. the 6th day of  the Advent Calendar Extravaganza by the totally awesome Taheerah Atchia!
So excited and absolutely honoured to be part of this event again!

This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

Today’s prize is generously supplied by Altenew so you’ll definitely want to win!
Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! 

I made two cards for this event. Here is my first card:

Altenew Peony Bouquet pencil colored for Advent Calendar with Taheerah Atchia

For both my cards I used Altenew's Peony Bouquet stamp set.
Here I used masking to create a floral border. I coloured the flowers using white Faber Castell classic pencil and a white gel pen.
The word "merry" is cut using Silhouette and I glittered the alphas to add the christmasy touch.

And my next card is a shaker card!

This one looks a lot like the one I made last year for Advent Calendar Extravaganza but I really wanted to make a typical red and gold Christmas card this time too and followed the inspiration graphic by Altenew. Here I have watercoloured the flowers using distress inks and added black paint splatters to the background.




You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win!

Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more!
