Hello and welcome back! So happy to see you again! Have you played with the Altenew March Inspiration Challenge yet? The inspiration color scheme and picture are really stunning! Take a look!

And here’s my card


The Altenew Wonderland stamp set just knocked my door and I am completely in love with it. So, inspired by the challenge and the Impressive Heat Embossing course by instructor Svetlana Marchenko, I decided to gold heat emboss the beautiful flower images from the set and watercolor it.

I started by stamping the images with Versamark ink onto a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper and heat embossing it with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder. Then pulled out my small Daniel Smith watercolor palette and started coloring. I mainly used Pyrrol Red, Quinacridone Gold and Undersea Green. Then I used the matching dies to cut my images.

For the background I did a bit of ink smooshing with Bandled Sage Distress Ink. I added some green and white splattering and arranged my flowers before adhering it with foam tape.

To embellish my card a bit more I added a couple of the Altenew Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts.

The sentiment also comes from the Wonderland stamp set and it was white heat embossed on a strip of Dark Gray cardstock.

Finally everything was mounted on a standard card base with double sided tape for more stability.

You will see me using this fabulous stamp set again. Until then, take care and keep crafting!
