I was pretty excited when Vanessa asked me to represent Butterfly Reflections Ink on this fun blog hop celebrating Crafty Friends and the stamping community! Altenew is a personal favorite stamp company of mine and so I'm especially honored to be able to share something with you all. In fact, I had taken a hiatus from stamping a number of years ago, and it was Altenew that lured me back with all their fabulous designs! I am so lucky to have a number of long time friends in the stamping and crafting community including my Mom and sister!
My card today features a beautiful and elegant new stamp set from Altenew's latest release. It's called Peace on Earth, and it's centerpiece is a gorgeous holiday ornament with the entire world on it. The sentiments are also special, as they are a collection of holiday greetings in many different languages!
For this card, I white heat embossed the ornament and branches in Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing powder and then used watercolor brush markers to color the area. I added in some color, and then blended it out with a watercolor brush. I dried the piece several times and added more color to build up the brightness and intensity of the colors. To achieve the torn edge, I scored a line and then wet it and gently tore the edge. I stamped the Peace On Earth greeting using Altenew Crisp Black Ink. I mounted it on some coordinating layers and finished it off with a few sequins. It's a lovely and elegant holiday card.
