Peachy Perfect

Hello everyone,

Today's post is another card using an Altenew set that I played with over the holidays.

The images are Altenew Wild Hibiscus stamped on watercolour paper in VersaMark, heat embossed with Close To My Heart black embossing powder and painted with LuminArte Buttercup, Fuzzy Peach, Natural Linen, Olive Vine, Pink Cloud and Playful Peony Twinkling H2Os.  The background image is Stampin' Up Watercolour Wash stamped in Altenew Sand Dunes on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla, layered on Basic Black, and highlighted with Wink of Stella Clear 999.  The sentiment is Hero Arts Classic Messages stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

Playing is so much fun but it's utterly incredible when the results turn out like this.  I've realized that to craft cards such as these, you need time (You Tube helps as well).  They are not quick and easy.  They are not exceptionally difficult but you need time to craft all the elements before constructing the final card.  Painting too takes time.  I found a great You Tube video showing an pretty easy watercolouring of this Altenew set and not only did it make painting much easier but I'm so thrilled with the results.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
