Altenew | For you

Hello all, I recently purchased some Altenew vintage flowers photopolymer clear stamps after seeing Lydia Evans on a shopping channel creating some beautiful designs. So I just had get my hands on them too. They arrived couple a weeks ago from Make the day special, but i've only just had the time to start playing with them. I must say, I did struggle to work out these stamps, but I got there in the end. I absolutely love these stamps and the results are pretty special.     

Started with sheet of Linen A4 card cut down to 20 x15 cm and folded with bone folder to the left side. Cut a matt layer of neenah solar white card slightly smaller than the card blank.  

Using the larger flowers, I stamped three heads scattered across the middle using the colour parchment (from colourbox ink set) then inked the second stamp layer in topaz colour and thirdly stamped the last layer in gold ink pad. Next I masked the flowers using post it notes, next stamped the small first layer of the small leaves with moss green colour and the next stamp layer with h green. Scattered three leaves in total, three seems to be the perfect number.  

I also did the same for the larger leaves using the same colours, added the small flower in between to hide any spaces using parchment colour. Using a heat tool in between each step so the ink is fully dried. Adhered this matt layer with double sided tape to blank card. Using Dymo embosser labelling machine, type out label "For You" and adhere the label to this card using double sided foam tape. Added a little sparkle to the small blossoms and the large heads with clear wink of stella pen. To finish I added some gold sequins and adhere them with micro glue dots.
