Spring Daisy Altenew Layering Class

Today I am working on the Layering classes from Altenew. Here is my first homework assignment:

Spring Daisy

The first class was using a signal layer stamp.  I used the Spring Daisy, it is stamped in Altenew Plum, Dark Night, and Yellow Ochre Crisp Dye Ink.  The leaves I used the Altenew Artist Marker G554 & G935.t  I colored on the stamps with the markers, as I didn’t have any Altenew green inks.  I think the leaves turned out fine. The paper is from Stampin’ Up!, Blackberry Bliss & Crushed Curry.  The fussy cut the flower and leaves out and the die used in the background is from Tim Holtz.  I hope you will follow along in my journey to get Altenew Certified.

Chillin’ Gnomes HSSS Challenge #344

Today’s challenge is coming to you from Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge.  They have a fun sketch for you.

HSS 344

This is my take on the sketch:

Chillin' Gnomes

Yes I am using gnomes again!!  I think they are so cute and fun to color.  I did a fun technique not sure the name of it, but I punched out some daisies and glued them to the blue square, then I put the blue square inside an embossing folder and ran it thru my big shot a couple of times.

wChillin' Gnomes 2 

I colored the gnome with my Schpirerr Farben color pencils, she is from the Chillin’ Gnomes set at Simon Says Stamps!.   Cardstock I used is from MFT Limelight, Coral Crush, Cornflower, and Pineapple.  I used the Medium Daisy punch and Dainty Diamonds embossing folder from Stamping’ Up!.  I am having a lot of fun doing these challenges, it is getting me to use things in a new way.
