Beautiful day !

Hi there!

Have you seen the beautiful inspiration photo for November on the Altenew blog?

A lovely bright red-orange and yellow flower with blue-green leaves, so pretty!

I used the Beautiful Day set to create this card inspired by the mentioned picture :



Altenew beautiful day

A closer look:

Altenew beautiful day


I used the colors in the picture, as well as the fact that the focus is only on one of the flowers .

I stamped the background with the outline of the large flower, and added one flower stamped with the 3 layering options.

I added 2 leaves and one of the sentiments to finish off the card.

For the flower I used :

  • Mustard seed            (Tim Holtz)
  • Spiced marmalade    (Tim Holtz)
  • Pale tomato              (Hero arts shadow ink)

For the leaves I used:

  • Peacock feathers     (Tim Holtz)  
  • Soft olive                (Hero arts shadow ink)

I also want to add my link to The flower challenge ~ Occasion.



                              


Thank you so much for looking!

Hugs
Hannelie
