A quick card for today. I had some time to stamp last week and wanted to play with a new set I got. I was the lucky winner of an Altenew Instagram giveaway and used the gift certificate on this stamp set called Beautiful Day. The images in the set really are gorgeous! Even better, they layer really well so you can put together quick cards that look hard. I can’t wait to spend more time with it but this turned out pretty even with my limited time. I used Distress Inks to layer the colors. Two different blues stamped on watercolor paper that I had dampened with a clean paint brush. The leaves are the same color. The first layer was stamped off and the next layer was full strength on the Mowed Lawn ink. Once the paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment using Basic Gray ink. I sewed around the edges to add a little something extra and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I know you’ll see more with this set in the future!
Back tomorrow with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I’m the hostess this week and I have one that I think you’ll enjoy. Until then, have a, well, beautiful day! Thanks for stopping in!
