FINALLY!!

I have been lusting over these Altenew Painted Flowers since they first debuted way back in the spring.  Anytime they'd be in stock I'd always miss them and they'd sell out again, but I finally nabbed them last week!  They are just lovely, and of course I had to ink them up in my favorite color for their first stamping.


supplies: blue and white cardstock, Altenew Painted Flowers, ColorBox Sky Blue, Brilliance Sky Blue, Hero Arts Cornflower, Stone Wash, Green Hills, and Grass inks, sentiment from Hero Arts Live Life, blue iridescent flower sequins from Paper Sweeties

There's a little bit of a learning curve to get all the steps stamped, and I'm not there yet,  but it is so worth it, in my opinion, to get results like this!  I know you'll be seeing lots more of this set.

Thanks for visiting!

I find the beauty of this set to be the "not Perfect" matching up of the layers...It makes it look more like a fabric print from days gone by!

WELL done:)
