Altenew June Inspiration

I just LOVE my Altenew stamps... slowly building up my stash.  The Altenew Blog is awesome as well... lots of inspiration and once a month... they have a little challenge... based on a photo inspiration.  This month's photo is stunning

Isn't this just stunning.  

Here's my card inspired by the above


I took my inspiration from the flower colour and the lace on the dress.  I used the new Spring Daisies stamp and white embossed onto some kraft paper ( some very heavy packing paper) I used some Faber-Castel pencils and mineral spirits to colour the flower.  Used some Tea Dye distress ink and a Tim Holtz lacy stencil to make the background.  The sentiment is from Altenew Beautiful Day set.   I'm hopeless at the placement of  gems or sequins so just scattered a few on this card.

Had fun making this one.  This stamp set is so versatile.  You can stamp the layers or you can colour like I did here. One of the reasons I so love Altenew stamps.

Entering this into the Monday Simon Says Stamp  challenge Summer Garden

What a fabulous card Dawn, and I love your gem placement!! I also like your 'kraft' background - I have been tempted to try using heavy wrapping paper too, but have never remembered when it came to the crunch.

Your lacey background is so pretty, and I love how you colored the daisy and leaves! Very clever to use heavy Kraft packing paper, too...Gorgeous take on the inspiration photo, Dawn!
