Project 1 – Meadow Bush Coloring Stencil

Altenew Meadow Bush Coloring Stencil | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I am so happy that Altenew released these new Detailed Blending Brushes. They are a dream to work with especially for someone like me who is always itching to add detail and shading to images.

My card features the Meadow Bush Layering Stencil. I used the Northern Shore Set of Dye Inks for my leafy bits. And for the flowers, I used the Golden Sunset Set of Dye Inks.

Once I was done with the stenciling, I didn't like the stark white background so I added inking using a couple of blues from the Northern Shore Set of Dye Inks. But I didn't mask off my flowers, in fact, I used the Detailed Blending Brushes to add the background inking! They are of different sizes so it was very helpful for me to reach the nooks and also to go around the flowers. And look at that smooth blend that I achieved with the Detailed Blending Brushes.

Project 2 – Dreamy Cat Stamp/Die/Coloring Stencil

Isnt the Dreamy Cat Stamp Set the cutest?! I used the Dreamy Cat Simple Coloring Stencil to color my image using the Detailed Blending Brushes and several Crisp Dye Inks.

For my background, I used the Watercolor Brush Markers in Desert Night and Ultramarine on A2 Watercolor CardstockI also added a bit of inking on all around the panel to give it a deep look.

I heat embossed the sentiment in Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.

Project 3 – Bouquet of Love Stamp Set

On A2 Watercolor Cardstock stamp the image from Bouquet of Love Stamp in Obsidian Pigment Ink. Pour over Crystal Clear Embossing Powder over the image and heat set it.

I used a bunch of Watercolor Brush Markers to color the image. I applied pigment on the edge and then activated it with water. For the background, I used a mix of colours to make a mauve-y tint which looks really cool.

To finish, I added a few fine splatters and stamped the sentiment.

Project 4 -Meadow Bush Coloring Stencil/Die

On Crest Solar White Cardstock, I applied the Pinkalicious Crisp Dye Ink for the base layer. For the second layer, I used Embossing Ink and then poured over Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder. For the third layer, I used Razzleberry Crisp Dye Ink. The last layer makes the leaves, branches, and flower centers. For this, I used Mocha, Espresso, and Dark Chocolate Dye Inks.

I used the darker brown inks to add shading with the help of the Detailed Blending Brushes. You can watch the video to see how I do this. Its just a bit if extra inking but the look completely changed. By adding shading, it seemed like the image was dimenional.

Next, I used the coordinating die to die cut the image and to this I adhered die-cut flower layers of gold glitter cardstock.

The sentiment panel was colored with the Metallic 14 Pan Set and then I stamped the sentiment from Bouquet of Love Stamp in Obsidian Pigment Ink.. I also adhered a thin strip of gold glitter cardstock to the label.

For the background, I used the Razzleberry, Pinkalicious, Dark Chocolate, and Mocha Dye Ink to watercolor. To finish, I adhered the image to the card front with foam tape. And then adhered the sentiment with foam as well. I also added Antique Gold Sequins.
