Good evening. After a couple of months off to re-group we are back at HLS with our challenges. Today we launch the March Anything Goes Birthday challenge. So here is my contribution, featuring Altenew's Fashion Monger Dahlia stamp set.
This was made for a good friend of mine who loves red flowers! An elegant card for an elegant lady! The set is a layered stamping one but for this I went with just the outlines stamped and heat embossed onto watercolour paper. The three blooms were coloured with some Candied Apple DI smooshed onto a craft mat, the shadows added with a Zig Watercolour marker, as were the inner cream petals. The leaves were coloured with a wash of Zig markers in two shades of green and then when dry, fussy cut along with the blooms.
I printed off some black and white, diagonal striped DP, adding it to one side of a panel of white card, together with a strip of black card. The fussy cut leaves and blooms were arranged over the strip, sentiment(Uniko) stamped and a few old HLS gems added. The completed panel was then added to a 5 x 7 white base card.
Why not join in our new challenge, check out the rest of the DT for more fab inspiration.
