Another Altenew Inspired card and Hero Arts Scramble...

I have seen my bloggy friend Virginia use Alcohol inks with her stamps and I decided that I would use some Altenew stamps with the inks to make another card for the Inspiration challenge for Februray



I used Beautiful Day stamp set and black embossed the glossy card and the used Alcohol inks on the images.  I then die cut the flowers and leaves.  My patterned paper is from Kaisercraft.    This was such a fun card to make and so quick to make.  

 This morning I also hit the craft room to join the Hero Arts 90 min scramble.  It was a 24hr one, so you just crafted at any time within the 24 hrs and make and photo your card within 90 mins.  I took 1 hour 20mins to make this one.  Our theme was to make a background.


A very busy background.  I used a HA stamp called Flower Medley.  It reminded me of the colouring book pages that are popular at the moment.  I used Zig Markers and water to colour them flowers.  As it was sooo busy, I chose to use vellum to add a sentiment.     I had fun doing this one too. 

It has been a very hot day, so my stints in the craft room cooled me down as my room is on the cooler side of the house.
