I cut kraft card stock to 5″ x 3.5″ using basic rectangle panel die first. I then heat embossed snow-covered flowers & leaves from the Frosted Garden set with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I tore the top part of the floral panel, and then adhered white panel to the back of the main panel using glue tape.
Hello there! This is Virginia.Today’s post is about how to stretch your precious Altnew Ink. I don’t know about you, but I am LOVING the Frosted Garden Stamp Set from our December release. This set comes with a mix of solid and detailed outline stamps. The floral images allow you to try all sort of techniques. If you love the watercolor look, but you feel that you are not equipped with proper watercolor supplies… Well, fear not, try Altenew Ink with water!
First, I stamped the images on a piece of Bristol paper. I like to mix the different colors and shades in the flowers. This can be achieved easily with the help of a stamp positioner. However, with practice, you can still line up the images. For the flower petals, I stamped with the ink from Cherry Blossom and Red Cosmo ; Pocketful of Sunshine and Warm & Cozy.
This shine from the embossing powder left a shine and gloss over the images. This extra step helped creating a barrier for my water-coloring. I took out a wet paint brush and carefully color the background with Rock Collection.
Who knew that you can easily create a piece of ” watercolor art” with stamped images? I hope that you are inspired to try using Altenew Ink for watercoloring. All you need is a clear Acrylic Block set and some ink with droplet of water! Now go and create something beautiful. Thank you for stopping by!
Good day everyone!
Sveta is here and I’m so happy to share with you my projects with Frosted Garden stamp set today! I love these kind of stamps and this one will be a new must have, always used and loved by me!
First card is black and white with a cosmic feel. I heat embossed some flowers along the left edge of a black card panel with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I then added the sentiment with Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder.
I also added a hidden part of a sentiment with Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder below the main one and made kind of galaxy background also using Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder along with Antique Silver one.
I really like how it turned out!
My second card is more clean and simple. I used heat embossing here too ( I love this technique!) but made it in two layers with ombre effect. First, I heat embossed flowers with Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder and then added second layer of embossing powder (Copper one) and took off a little bit of it at the edges using a brush.
And finally the third card is the most colorful and tiny. I made it abt half wide of usual size and it can be used as a tag also.
Hope you liked today’s ideas! Have fun creating!
