It's cold and wet outside which means perfect crafting weather! This week I have been inspired by the current Altenew card challenge which is a picture inspo challenge:
The DT asked us to be inspired by the arrangement, colours, texture or other element of the photograph, and the name of the challenge is 'white on white focal point'. The white on white part had me stumped for a bit. I played with embossing, illuminate ink, and various off-white inks and cards before settling on soft champagne-coloured roses achieved using Antique Linen distress ink. The flowers and leaves are stamped from Amazing You from Altenew. The soft colouring was achieved using sponging with the same ink as the outline.
The finished card is below:
I am completely in love with this stamp set and have so many ideas to use it!
