New stamps, let's play!

I've having so much fun with these new stamps I got from Altenew. I had no idea what I was going to do with them at first I was just playing around, this is the result.


Products used:
Altenew card#1 Lotus card #2 Golden Garden
Penny Black card #1 30-105 Gratitude card #2 30-356 Treasured Sentiments
Ranger distress ink
Ranger watercolor paper
Ranger Archival ink black
Clarity brushes card #2
Dimensional tape
Card 1: I stamped the Lotus using Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint, and Fossilized Amber distress ink markers. Then I used my water brush to shade. I stamped several and fussy cut them out. I decided to add some depth so I cut the bottom of one flower to pop up on another, for the background I used a mixture of two inks, Faded Jeans and Broken China, I wet the whole piece of watercolor paper and then added the ink brushing it to make it appear to be water. I added the flowers and sentiment and matted it on pink and then on a gray card.
Card 2:  This one was from my earlier stamp play. I stamped and masked and stamped and masked until I had this curved image. I water colored the flowers with Abandoned Coral and Peeled Paint and them fussy cut the whole thing out. I adhered it to a white card and then using my Clarity brushes I shaded just the edge to the right of the flowers. I add my sentiment and it was done.

Another great day of stamping fun! Can't wait for my next 3 sets to come in the mail!


  1. Both your cards are so beautiful, I adore the floral edge on the second design!

  2. Absolutely stunning cards, Karen. Even prettier in person!!
