Altenew,  The Flower Challenge

Heat or Dry Embossing | The Flower Challenge May 2019

Hi friends,

For the May 2019 Flower Challenge we have the challenge of Heat or Dry Embossing on your cards.

If you join in you also have the chance of winning a stamp set from Altenew.

For my card I used the Altenew leafy frame, die cut and layered a number of times from white cardstock for dimension. I added this to an ink blended background using Victorian velvet and worn lipstick distress inks. For the central panel I gold heat embossed the floral from Altenew Golden Garden and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Aquatint markers. The sentiment is from Altenew Love Labels.

I hope you will also check out the rest of the design teams inspiration for you and look forward to seeing what you create.

    This is such a beautiful and lovely card, Rachel! The antique rose/coral color of the background and the main flower is one of my favorite colors! Love the loose coloring on the central panel!

    This is so pretty Rachel!love that beautiful frame and your delicate flower. The pink in the background looks great with the white frame too. Just beautiful 😉 hugs Viv xx

    Oh Rachel, I have this stamp set and I don’t use it as much as I should, but you just inspired me to get it out again and create something with it.
    I love the beautiful rose color you used on your flower, the sponged background is simply spectacular, beautifully done.
    Love the layers on the leafy frame, what a great idea to make it a bit thicker.

    I never think to use Victorian Velvet but it such a beautiful color on your card, Rachel. The flower is lovely embossed gold and colored with the markers.
