Another Altenew card

So after trying the watercolor method with these stamps I opted for the more traditional stamping method. These are layering stamps so you can add as much or little detail as you like. I used all four below but with the water coloring I just choose one.

I actually stamped these first using inks I had on hand but was solely disappointed that I just wasn't' getting the vibrancy from them I wanted. I then went and purchased some of the crisp inks from Altenew and found them to be much better in handling the details of the stamps but still not overjoyed with the color scheme, although I do like how they give off a romantic vintage feel.

And I struggled with a sentiment on this card, seemed no matter which color I tried it just didn't work so I finally decided it's fine just the way it is.

  2. So pretty, Leslie, love the touch with with scalloped frame on top! I've been eyeing these stamp sets, but I'd definitely need to buy more inks in order to achieve the layers.
