February 2017 Inspiration Challenge

by Aga

Feb2017 AltenewChallenge Aga
Hello Everyone! It's Aga here and I’m happy to host this month’s challenge!

It’s dark and grey outside so I chose a bright and colourful picture to brighten up these February days. I took this photo on my vacation in Majorca, Spain and it shows a beautiful plant called Bougainvillea. It can come in many different shades and I simply love it!

Here's what I came up with inspired by my picture:

thank you 1

I created a very CAS card using lovely floral images from the Amazing You Stamp Set. I stamped them in black and used markers to do the colouring. I also used a pink pen to add some strokes on the petals. To finish my card I added black splatters and a sentiment stamped in black.

thank you 2

I love your card. It’s so pretty! I’m always up for a good challenge. I have to see what Altenew stamps I have that would fit this challenge. I know I have plenty of other things that would work but I’m not sure about Altenew. Can’t wait to start creating!
