Today I am working on the Layering classes from Altenew. Here is my first homework assignment:
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.
Are you feeling a little zany staying home yet? Me not so much. But I have some Zany Zebras from Stampin’ Up!. These zebras are super cute. I added a little color to their stripes with my Schpirerr Farben color pencils. They are colored very lightly its hard to tell in this picture.
The Peek a Boo windows is a die from Whimsy Stamps. The Water colored paper I think is from Catherine Pooler, but I could be wrong? It was mixed in with some of her other paper I have.
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.
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.
Today’s challenge is from Always Anything Goes. The challenge is to showcase FRUIT. This was a challenge in it’s self, as I didn’t know if I even had a stamp with fruit. After going thru all my stamps I found Sweet Summertime by MFT.
I colored her with my color pencils. The background stamp is called Crosshatch Polka Dot, it’s also from MFT. The papers and ribbons are from Stampin’ Up!. The Polaroid die I used I think is from Stampin’ Up!.
