Hello! And welcome to the final stop in Day 2 of the Altenew 3rd Annivesary Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Evelyn’s blog, however, if you need some guidance, a full list of the blog hop is listed below.
I am always thrilled to join Altenew in their adventures. Their incredibly beautiful stamps, dies, and kits are truly one of a kind and I admire their products and innovation every release! To think, they are only on 3! WOW! Happy Birthday Altenew!
Today I am sharing a card with their new Tea Time stamp set and dies. There’s just something about loose illustrations that I’m just attracted to and I absolutely LOVE this set! Also, I am a big tea lover.
I love to watercolor these types of images. I stamped them in black hybrid ink and then started layering watercolors on them. I wanted slightly harsh lines in the shadows to match the illustrations. Once I was done painting, I die cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I wanted a simple background, but in a style that matched my images. That’s when I thought to reach for the painted stripes stamp from the Handmade Tags Stamp Set. I added a blend of Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, and Spiced Marmalade distress ink, spritz some water, and stamped down the image into the bottom right corner of the card. I then added a little bit of splatter.
Finally, I can arrange and layer my images. I adhered the florals first so that I knew where I will be stamping my sentiment, and then stamped my sentiment in black hybrid ink. I used my mini MISTI to make sure I get a nice crisp font since I was stamping onto watercolor paper. Then I was able to finish putting everything together with some foam squares.
With this stamp set, you can make so many arrangements of different images since there are so many choices! I can’t wait to send this out for my next afternoon tea with friends.
