Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 



Hi there! Welcome to Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden Release.
You must be here from Verity Biddlecombe.

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden | Erum tasneem | @altenew

I had fun working on these projects. The first card shares a mix of stamping and colouring through the stencil.

I used dye inks to colour the images. The purple flowers are stenciled directly onto the base.

Just to add a bit more to the design, I drew a few vertical and horizontal lines.

This was fun! I embossed the A2 Watercolor panel and then coloured the images with watercolor.

Once the panel was dry, I ran it again through the die-cutting machine with the embossing folder to get back the lost dimension.

I added tons of splatters and finished with the Hello and Hugs Die.
