June 2019 Inspiration Challenge

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! It’s Virginia here with the June 2019 Inspiration Challenge. It’s true that inspirations are everywhere and these days, we can always find inspiration in the great outdoors. For the June Inspiration Challenge, I chose a garden photo that my husband John took while visiting in Iceland last summer.


To start, I started stamping a bunch of flowers from Delicate Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle. For the yellow flowers, I used Sunray, Milk Chocolate and a touch of Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink. For the dark red flowers, I selected Pink Diamond and Grapevine. Finally, for the green flowers, I chose Forest Glades and Moss.

What better ways to arrange them? The Versatile Vases, of course! I chose the smallest vase image and stamped it over the A Walk in the Woods. To make the entire design cohesive, I again reached for Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink.

For the embellishment, I added glitter, Enamel Dots and Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray (splatters).
