Altenew - Beautiful Day

There's something quite special about Altenew's 'Beautiful Day' stamp set.
It's beyond beautiful.

I started by stamping the outline flower and leaf several times onto vellum with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with a glittery / white powder from Honeydoo Crafts (White Opal).

Lots of fussy-cutting later, I was ready to add a subtle pink watercolour wash, with a Zig Brush pen, to the flowers.

I literally drew a line of colour on each petal and then, with a fine wet brush, added a drop of water and let the colour wash. Easy and very satisfying.

Then it was a case of several hours pontificating over the layout, adding a couple of inked flowers (from the same set) directly on the card, and sticking it all down.

A few obligatory sequins strategically placed here n' there... et voila!
All done. Easy peasy lemon squeezy (except the sequin
