VIDEO | Altenew Story Book Fantasy Collection Video Hop

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Altenew today for a fun video hop to celebrate the Storybook Fantasy Collection. If you haven't already seen my projects that I shared with the collection, you can see them HERE. Today, I am using the Fairy Tale Florals set again as I just fell in love with it. This time I am doing some detailed ink blending with it. 

I started off my card by stamping the large image from the Altenew Fairy Tale Florals Stamp Set onto a panel of white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I then applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. Using the Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool, I applied a soft layer of Caribbean Sky from the Altenew Glacier Caves Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set

I then took the new Altenew Detailed Blending Brushes and applied colour to the petals on the images using Persian Blue and Sapphire Inks (from the same Glacier Caves Set), as well as Lavender Fields Ink from the Altenew Shades of Purple Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set. I used Aqualicious from the Altenew Sweet Dreams Crisp Dye Ink Mini Cube Set for the leaves. 

I then placed the panel in my splat box and sprayed on a mist of Altenew Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray followed by splatters of that for bigger drops. I set the panel aside to dry while I stamped the sentiment. I took the sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with more Versamark Ink. I applied the same embossing powder, heat set and cut it in to two strips. 

The panel was added to an A2 white card base with tape runner and then the sentiment strips added with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few sequins that are sadly now discontinued (but I love them so wanted to use them up, sorry!).
