Today I have something really special to share. A few weeks ago I received an email from Tasnim from Altenew and she asked me if I were interested to guest design for them. Are you kidding me, of course I am! That was the easiest part of it - to say yes. I really wanted to make something very special for them, since Altenew is one of my favourite stamp companies. I just love their stamps, especially floral ones - they are so beautiful and perfect for watercoloring. This set of three cards are what I created with Altenew stamps - hopefully you like them and they give you some inspiration.

For all the three cards I stamped the outline images with light water soluble ink and watercolored them with Distress Inks and Kuretake Gansai Tambi- watercolours (My newest love affair). I created a border stripes with Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Chipped Sapphire. I trimmed one edge of the watercolour panel to overlap the border edge. The watercolour panels are raised up with foam tape and for the finishing touch I added a few sequins. Sentiments are stamped either black ink or Versamark and then heat embossed with either Clear Embossing powder or Silver Embossing powder.
Thank you Tasnim for inviting me as a Guest Designer. It has been a true pleasure.
Thank you for stopping by today and sharing this with me. I hope you liked my cards and got some inspiration for your own work. Have a wonderful day and I wish for all of you all the best for the year 2015!
