I combined two challenges for this softer, non-traditional take on images from Altenew's Poinsettia and Pine stamp set - a favorite of mine for this season!
I flipped the layout for the current Match the Sketch Challenge #154 and was inspired by the colors and soft florals in shades of yellow and
green in the A Year in Review Inspiration Challenge on the Altenew blog. I chose the inspiration photo for June 2016.
I die cut three different sizes of stitched squares using Ranger watercolor CS and dies by Lil' Inker Designs. I added a light watercolor wash with Squeezed Lemonade distress ink then splattered some Twisted Citron distress ink. I white embossed the florals on a heavy weight vellum then die cut each one after coloring on the back side with Copic markers. I also die cut each image from white cardstock then used spray adhesive to layer the vellum over the white CS. I guess I could have skipped the vellum, but I do like the more subtle coloring and the different texture it gives to the card. This sentiment is one of many from Altenew's Holiday Wishes - a must have for many unique holiday messages!
