I played today with some of my new dies by Altenew. I found these to be very intriguing as each flower has multiple layers that can be cut with different colors of card stock, or, as I did in this case, cut them in white and colored with the medium of your choice. I've used Copics and tried to get additional dimensional shading of the layers and more detail to the leaves. This particular die is the Fantasy Floral, but I've gone a bit overboard and also purchased the Peony Dreams and Rose Flurries Sets so stay tuned. (Still buying b-day 'prises, what can I say?)
I followed the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch and added a Spellbinders doily behind the flower and swirls from Taylored Expressions. The sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I might have been done a few hours earlier, but got caught up with YouTube videos of various ways to use the sets. Seriously I could have spent all day.
I'm also entering this in the DL.Art May Linky Challenge, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #81 AG, Jo's Scrap Shack FFC #232 AG, Papercraft Challenges #11 Flowers, the Unicorn Challenge #32 Monochrome, Create and Inspire AG/optional use dies or stencils, TTRCD AG Week starting May 8, Cupcake Inspirations Challenge#445 and Creative Craft Cottage May #107 Dies or Punches.
