New Year Blooms


Always fun to try new color combos when crafting, and the January 2017 Altenew Inspiration Challenge fit the bill with the mustard, brown and vanilla tones.

 


I stamped a series of blooms from Beautiful Day, along with some foliage in brown ink onto kraft cardstock. They were colored with Prismacolors and then I splattered white paint across the panel. I finished with a greeting from the Tulip Stamp Set.

  3. I gasped when I saw this, Karen! This is absolutely stunning, and the most beautiful use of the images and those colors.... I would say that I need to CASE it, but I know my coloring skills would fall far too short to do it justice! xoxo

  9. You rocked these difficult colours! Is it a new stamp set? You should enter this in the NBUS challenge as it's colouring on kraft.
