Altenew - first makes.

I have wanted to have a play with my Altenew stamps, inks and dies for a while now but you know how it is life gets in the way, but today I found a couple of hours today to have a little play.

Here's what I was able to create

This first card was made using the Vintage Rose stamp set and the following ink cubes from Altenew Summer Afternoon and Green fields.

I added a sentiment from Craftwork cards Label tape sentiment stamps, mounted on to some vellum and a few black sequins.

This card was made using the Vinatgae flower stamp set and the Vintage rose stamp set. I used the followig ink cube; Green fields, shades of  Lavender and four scoops.

I added a spray of ink dots by mixing a little ink and water on an acrylic block and using a very fine paint brush to flick the ink.

 This card also used the Vintage flowers stamp set but this time I used Red Cosmos ink cubes, four scoops and Green fields.

The sentiments are from Paperbabe stamps Birthday wishes stamp set. This card also uses the technique mentioned above.

This card combines both the Vintage flowers and Vintage rose stamp sets. I used the Cool Summer Nights, Four Scoops and Green Fields ink cubes.

I die cut an oval apperture and place a die cut bird inside, the flowers were stamped and then die cut using the coordinating vintage Rose die set, the sentiment is from the Vinatge Rose set.

This was the first time I've actually used the stamps to create cards, I have tested my layering skills and tried ink combinations, I'm fairly happy with my stamping and with a bit of practice I think I will improve.

I'll be back soon with more crafty makes T x
