Just One More Card Blog Hop | Celebrating Kindness

Hello there, today I have the absolute pleasure in celebrating kindness with Julia Altermann. Julia recently got to 10k subscribers on her You Tube channel and she wanted to thank them, as well as all of her blog, Instagram and Facebook followers. She has invited a whole group of super talented card makers and designers, as well as the amazing sponsors to celebrate the kindness of this community.

 
You should have arrived here from the amazing Laura, but if you get lost along the way, I have a full list of participants below. For my card, I thought it would be fun to CASE one of Julia's cards. I was the very honoured recipient of this card from Julia. I absolutely love it and wanted to re-create it in my own way.
 

I started off with a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolour paper. I then took the Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set and stamped the peonies with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink. I masked the first one and then stamped the second beside, as well as the leaves. The leaves were stamped with Twisted Citron Distress Ink. I then coloured/painted the rest of the image using Distress Inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Spiced Maralade on the flowers, and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the leaves.
 
 
Once dry, I ran the piece through my Cuttlebug using the largest of the SSS Stitched Rectangle dies. The sentiment, from the Altenew Sentiments & Quotes stamp set, was stamped below the image in black ink. The panel was adhered to a black A2 card base with foam sheet. To finish off, I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
