Altenew's Boho Decor Ensemble embraces an eclectic mix of relaxed, bold, and unconventional patterns and textures. It showcases a stunning arrow with whimsical feathers, some bohemian-inspired decorative vases, and a gorgeous yet intricately designed 3D Masonry Wall!
This ensemble includes:
I started by stamping the Boho Arrow onto a piece of 110lb Classic Solar Crest Cardstock using Permanent Crisp Black Ink. I then used Altenew Artist Markers to color the image. I chose to use Purple Wine, Aqualicious, and Chamomile. I then cut the image using the coordinating die.
Next, I set about creating the card base, I knew that I wanted to have a partial die-cut effect with an embossed panel behind. I added the Boho Arrow Die to my open card base and secured it with low tack tape. I then added my die-cutting top plate over the lower section of the arrow making sure that I did not cover the whole image. I used the straight line of the arrow to align the plate, when I run it through my die-cutting machine it only cuts where the top plate covers, cutting away the lower part of the image leaving me with a decorative edge. I used scissors to cut any little piece that needed tidying up before adhering the colored image over the top.
Next, I took a sheet of 110lb Classic Solar Crest Cardstock and ink blended it using Purple Wine Crisp Dye Ink, I then run it through my die-cutting machine with the Masonry Wall 3D Embossing Folder. I trimmed the embossed panel to measure 5.5″ by 4.25″ and adhered it to the card base behind the die-cut section, the bright color act as a bold contrast and gives a modern feel.
Stamp the arrow with Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink or any other ink of your choice. Stamp any of the large sentiments on top of the arrow. Color in the arrow and feathers with Artist Alcohol Markers, and voila!
