Forever And Always

Happy Wednesday, BRI friends!

It's Dana with my final blog post as a part of the Butterfly Reflections Ink design team. I don't believe how quickly the 4 months have flown by. Especially for today, I'm sharing two cards featuring many Altenew products. Let's get started!

I began by die cutting both backgrounds from white card stock using Altenew Dotted Debossing Cover Die. I then stamping layering images from Altenew Garden Treasure Stamp Set.

For my first card, I used Altenew Tea Party, Summer Afternoon and Green Fields Mini Cube Set. I stamped from solid image of bottom layer to top. I then finished off each stampings by inking outlines using the lightest color which I used for the bottom layer.

For small flowers, I stamped them with Memento Desert Sand and colored with Altenew Artist Markers Set B. I then fussy cut all images using scissors and added details to flowers and leaves with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Signo White.

I splattered dark purple watercolor paints from Gansai Tambi Watercolor with water using paint brush to background and let them dried. Then, I stamped sentiment from Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set onto a piece of grey paper and foam mounted it as shown.

I popped up flowers and leaves as well and I used different thickness of foam adhesives for dimension.

For my second card, I used Altenew Sweet Dreams, Cool Summer, Coffee Break Mini Cube Set and Lawn Fawn Hippo Dye Ink. I created flowers and leaves using same process with previous one. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Altenew Forever and Always Stamp Set onto dark grey paper and foam mounted it as shown.

To finish, I embellished Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst Jewels and Sea Glass Jewels to each cards and adhered each panels to A2 sized top folding card base.

Here are more pics.

I hope you enjoyed these cards. Thank you SO much for reading my posts and supporting me for last 4 months.
