Botanical Garden

Hello,

I'm at the Altenew blog today to share three cards made with Botanical Garden set. 





On my first I used the technique which is the easiest for me - no line colouring. Love how the sentiment fits so well for flowers.

Copic markers used: Y21 – YR21 -YR23, YG03 – G24 – YG67.



On my second card I used zig clean color markers to stamp and colour the flowers. 

Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers used: Pale Pink – Brick Beige




This third one is my favourite of these these - maybe because it is so different what I normally make. I made this into video tutorial, hopefully you'll find it helpful. 




Supplies:
Stamps: Botanical Garden, Many Thanks, Halftone Hello, Beautiful Lady by Altenew.
Inks: Deep Iris, Lavender Fields, Soft Lilac Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Buttercream Crisp Inks from Altenew, Versafine Onyx Black and Vintage Sepia
Clear Sparkel Embossing Powder from WOW!
Hammer White Paper Creative Paper

  2. Marika, all three cards are gorgeous, as always, your coloring is outstanding, beautiful, breathtaking!!!
    Can I ask you what ink you used to stamp the images on your first card with the Botanical Garden for the no line stamping?
    Thank you so much for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.

  3. You truly have the most incredible eye for design...this is my favorite set from the new release, so was interested to see how you used it. Though I'll never color as well as you, I now have lots of ideas for when I receive it.

    1. I love that your 'stretching' is doing a technique that is simple, but still challenges ME: blending! What a beautiful card, Marika!
