Diva Inspiration with Altenew

Hello Diva friends - I'm part of the last of the month inspiration at Die Cut Divas. Our August challenge with Altenew and watercoloring ends today at 9pm Pacific time. There's still time to play along!!

Here's my inspiration card:

Supplies: Paper - DCWV Ms Sparkle A2 card;
Strathmore 140lb Watercolor Paper
Stamps - Altenew Book Club;
Dies - Altenew Book Club;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Distress Reinkers - Festive Berries, Tumbled Glass, Lucky Clover, 
Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick
Parklane (JoAnn's brand) gems

Thanks to Arlene for sending me a stamped/die cut bookplate - love this image and it was so fun to watercolor!! I popped it atop another piece of the print I had made for my August 21st card. I had watercolored one of the rose layers, as well as leafy ones, on this piece. It also got a spritz from my bottle of green reinker/water/perfect pearl mist I had made years ago (still good!!).

The Happy sentiment strip came from a Christmas packet that includes words Merry and Happy to go along with Christmas, depending on what side of the pond you live. I simply put all the Happys with the birthday sentiment strips! I stamped the birthday from a cute Sunny Studio set - love the font on that one! Added some gems - done!

Please check at Die Cut Divas tomorrow for another challenge and then on September 3rd for the winner of our August challenge ($20 gift card courtesy of Altenew).

Thanks for stopping!

this stamp and die is a big favourite of mine - need to give it some more love. Just adore you card Linda. It's wonderful.

Arlene said...

I love the colors and coloring. Looks great on your background.

This stamp is lovely and your coloring is beautiful. I like how you also colored a bit inside the circle with the sentiment, instead of leaving it all white. Classy and timeless design.

Linda, that is one of my favorite Altenew stamps. Your water coloring is fabulous and makes for a lovely card.

I’ve seen this stamp, but for some reason I thought it was by different company. You’ve watercolored it beautifully. It looks great against the green background.

Rosemary said...

WOW! Your card is just gorgeous, Linda! The coloring is amazing!

Jean said...

The many ways in which you've incorporated the watercoloring have created stunning results.
