Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set & Gradient Cardstock Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello and welcome to Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus and Gradient Cardstock Release.

You must be here from Nichol Spohr's blog.


My card is quite "clean and simple" considering my style :)

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I die-cut my flowers out of Crest Solar White Cardstock for a change.
But I did die-cut my leaves out of  the 9x12 watercolor cardstock and used the Watercolor Brush Markers to color them.

For the flowers, I used Vanilla Cream Dye Ink and the Detailed Blending Brushes to add a bit of inking.
And for my background, I used a couple of colours from the Watercolor Brush Markers.
