I hope I didn't bore you. But since we are celebrating Ruby's journey, I thought I should walk down memory lane as well and share it with you.
I met Ruby via Instagram and I am super glad I did. She is oh-so-lovely and I can be myself with her, not worrying about what she might think of me♥
Congrats RUBY! I wish you lots of success!

Altenew August 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and WELCOME to Altenew's August release hop!

You must be here from my amazingly awesome friend,
who I have actually met in real life, Tania Ahmad's blog.

Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

This is a gorgeous set! I kept the card simple and added tons of splatter for interest.

I stamped and die cut all the images then glued them directly on the card base. Super mail friendly card!

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Again, I tried to keep the card simple. I stamped one of the flowers multiple times to build my background. Then, I added a bit of shading with Prismacolor pencils.

Altenew Inked Flora Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

On this card, I stamped the flower once and the leaves several times. Next I watercoloured this very messily with Altenew 36 Pan Set. Then I added some doodling and extra "drawn" lines to give the stamp a more of a sketch look. This is a one layer card, I tried to show a bit of dimension by adding a hint of Lava Rock watercolour.

Altenew Smile and Hugs Stamp Set | Artist Markers | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the florals multiple times and then coloured the images with Artist Markers. Next I die cut the images, added tons of white splatters to the background and arranged my floral bouquet.
