Altenew has a themed challenge for July, Weddings,
and this color filled inspiration photo
Altenew's florals are so striking, and embossed in gold, as in Yana's
gorgeous card, even more spectacular!
Just perfect for a wedding card!
The problem is, picking one set over another.
Hadn't used their Lotus stamps and dies yet, so
they became my focus for a 'watery' card.
Sponge inked and water splattered bg, in
Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn (Ranger Distress inks).
PTI's Circle Scribbles cut from gold mirror card stock,
sort of resembles water ripples.
Zig watercolor pens: Light Carmine, Pink & Wine red for the lotus blossoms.
Light Green & May Green for the lotus leaves.
A few sequins on my water, and card panel onto a
gold and kraft stripe cardstock.
One of the things I asked my husband for, was a Koi pond,
25 years ago when we moved to the country.
These beautiful blooms open with the sun, and close at night.
Wish I could have included a koi or 2, but they were shy when I
took the photo.
