Just Know I’m Here!

Hello everyone!

After all the birthday and Christmas cards,I thought to create a more sentimental one. When I saw the Muse challenge theme I realised I haven’t used flowers for quite a while! So I chose to go for a flower themed design combining two gorgeous stamp sets – “Bamboo Rose” from Altenew and “Deepest Sympathy” from MFT! I wanted to create something nice but simple. My color palette was inspired by the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge. And after a long time I decided to go back to watercoloring and I admit I REALLY enjoyed it!Here is my little card!

Supplies used:

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white
  • Prima Marketing Confections Watercolors – Tropicals
  • Altenew – Bamboo Rose
  • MFT – Deepest Sympathy
  • Versamark Ink
  • Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Regular embossing powder
  • Heat tool
  • Tonic Studio – Tim Holtz Stamp platform
  • Double sided tape
  • Waterbrush

With this card I took part in the following challenges. Why don’t you have a look at these fantastic blogs and join the fun too? πŸ™‚
