Altenew September 2017 Inspiration Challenge

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone and welcome to the September 2017 Inspiration Challenge post.

Today is the first day of Autumn but instead I will surprise you with a spring inspirational photo! I'd love to know your favorite season of the year?

I took this photo in my kitchen. I really love the pastel colors in this photo with just a touch of a bright purple!

Sept Inspiration Challenge

Here is my take on the September Inspiration Challenge:

SvetaFotinia 2812

I used Altenew's newest Doodled Lace Cover Plate Die and toned it using a blending tool and Crisp Dye Inks- Frayed Leaf, Ocean Waves and Pinkalicious.

For the card base I chose coordinating to our color combo Woodgrain Powder Cardstock.

I adhered only the frame of the cover plate die-cut to left dimension of the lace look and added some glitter accents on the flowers.

For the sentiment I chose a little one from the newest Sweet Friend stamp set that I heat embossed with the Pure White Crisp embossing powder on a piece of cardstock blended with Pinkalicious Crisp Ink.

Hope you liked both: the inspiration photo and the card I prepared for you today!

Sveta, this is beautiful. I love this cover die and you have certainly done it justice! I have 2 fave seasons that I love equally…spring and fall. Spring because everything is coming to life and fall because its harvest season!

Sveta your gorgeous Spring-time card and inspiration photo in your kitchen are gorgeous! I have to say Teresa said it perfectly… for all the right reasons!
Pale shades of Fall colors, perhaps would fit the challenge?

Love the inspiration photo and your card is stunning! The delicate look of the soft colors is truly breathtaking!
Seeing this makes me so glad that I ordered the Doodled Lace Cover Plate Die and that my order arrived today so I can play with it right away! I am going to use different color mediums to try to get this soft look! Thanks for sharing and inspiring me!
