Hello, Altenew fans!
It’s Enza and I am excited to be hosting Altenew’s Sketch Challenge #13, the first of the new year!
The sketch I made is based on one of my favorite layouts, which features the Frosted Garden Stamp Set; you can find it here.
I followed the sketch pretty closely. Other than the variation in color, the design is pretty much the same as my previous layout.
The Build-A-Flower: Cattleya Stamp Set was perfect to create my background and wreath elements. The colors are brighter and more intense here, and the rainbow effect is given by the combination of different shades found in the beautiful layers. Here are the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks I used:
- coral: Peach Perfect, Coral Bliss, Heart Beat
- pink: Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Cosmic Berry
- purple: Wisteria, Hydrangea, Andromeda
- teal: Dew Drops, Aqualicious, Teal Cave
- green: Firefly, Grass Field, Shadow Creek, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades.
As in the original layout, I created a circular opening in the middle by tracing a round shape onto my paper as a guide for the stamping. With the help of a stamping block, I stamped the outline of the cattleya all around the circle, making sure to vary the direction of the images for a more natural look. Once that was ready, I adhered the flowers down with foam dots.
I layered patterned paper from the Pastel Dreams Paper Pack behind the photo and used the green cattleyas to create an extra layer and bring in more color. The beautiful butterflies from the Butterfly Acetate Die Cuts pack give a romantic touch to the page, while the “sweet” wood veneer sentiment worked perfectly as my title – I colored it with Pinkalicious Crisp Dye Ink.
Enamel dots in coordinating colors finished the page.
Hope you have fun playing along!
