I just received my first Altenew order yesterday, thanks to a $15 gift card win on Virginia's blog. When I ordered, Altenew offered a free Apple Tree layered stamp set - cute as can be, isn't it? I couldn't resist giving it a play after I cut and colored a Floral Sprig (you'll see that in an upcoming post).
After I did the stamp layering, I did some shading and detailing with markers and then blended a bit with a water pen. I thought it was a great idea to use the little bubble stamps from the Floral Frame set as "apples" on my tree. I stamped in Festive Berries and then colored them in with a Candied Apple marker. So fun! The Tim Holtz kraft stack has Distress ink colors with a kraft core, revealed when sanded after embossing - love this paper!! It's Day 11 of Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge and I'll be coloring some more Altenew flowers and sprigs later today.
Have a crafty day and thanks for stopping by!!
