Altenew Build-a-Flower: Ranunculus Release. Watercolouring using Metallic Ink Sprays. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0
Hello friends.
Like every month on the 15th Altenew releases a new flower+die combo.
This time it is a beautiful Ranunculus.

I heat embossed my flower using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
The leaves were watercoloured using Pumice Stone distress ink.
I diecut all the images and popped them on my card front using foam tape.

I have used Spicy Yogurt cardstock for my card front and to it I have added a light colour wash with Pumic Stone distress ink and a few black splatters.
The sentiment is also heat embossed using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. I added a thin strip of gold glitter tape to it.

See you soon.

Altenew June 2017 Release Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY


Hello!!
Welcome welcome to my humble blog.
I am SO excited today.
Like always this release too is AWESOME!
Altenew has knocked it out of the park with this stencil release.
I love it and I know you will too!

You must be here from the amazing Yoonsun Hur's blog.


Lets start with my first card using the Tree Ring Stencil.

Altenew Tree Ring Stencil. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I used the stencil to emboss the tree ring.
I had to use a metal shim for the lines to really show up properly.
I cut out the embossed area and inked it just like a wood slice would look.
After I was done inking, I popped it over on to my Spicy Yogurt card front using foam tape.
I stamped and diecut a sentiment from Halftone Hearts and popped it over the tree ring cut out.

I added some hearts (from the die in New Day Card Kit) with some glossy accent to add a pop of colour.


Altenew Graffiti Scribble Stencil and Bold Alphas. Card by Erum Tasneem - @pr0digy0

I made two cards out of one panel that I coloured using Crayola Markers.
I first outlined the stencil with a permanent black pen then shifted it a bit to offset it and added more lines to make one side of the drawn line bolder.
I hope you understand what I am saying.
I turned one card into a shaker card and kept the other very CAS,
Here are the cards individually.

I added a bit of shading in the white areas, "the scribble" with a grey colour pencil.
The "hello" is cut out by Bold Alphas dies. 
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set which is popped over Silver Glitter Tape.

Here is the next card.

This one looks SO GOOD in person.
I used the cut outs from the first card on this one by layering them four times.
All letters are straight except for the "E" which is a little tipped to the left.
I have added glossy accents on the letters and it looks great.

The enamel dots are from the New Day Card Kit. You can also purchase them individually.
The sentiment is from Crafty Friends stamp set.

My final set of cards featuring the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil - B.

Again I did the same thing and made two cards out of one panel.
Here I watercoloured the panel using Gansai Tambi watercolours.

I cut out a strip from the panel after watercolouring. Placed the pieces on my base with foam tape.
Placed the diecut "everything" in silver foil from Halftone Everything like it's holding the two pieces together. Added a smaller sentiment on a black cardstock which was embossed using Pure White Crisp embossing powder.

Again, I really like this one. I have noticed I am leaning more towards CAS, less cluttered cards.

I have used the Halftone Everything stamp set again for this card.
What makes this different is that I added glossy accent to the watercoloured areas.
It looks like ceramic, vintage crockery with embossed fruits if you can recall?
Take a look.

I am loving the clean look of this card.
