Rustic Ink Blended Card | Altenew Marvelous Monthly Series Release

Hey Crafty People!

Today I’m joining a Video Hop to celebrate the September Marvelous Monthly Series Release from Altenew! ?

Im also sharing two cards that I made with the awesome Spark Joy subscription too, so be sure to check those out, after joining the hop over on YouTube!

Dynamic Duo: Wildflower Bouquet

  1. Ink blend the several layers of stencilled images, concentrating the colour to the bottom/base of each section before blending up & out. For added dimension, add a small amount of a darker shade to the very bottom/base.
  2. TIP! Start with the stems, and the stencils have etched lines which help you to line up each extra layer you add, against the last.
  3. Stamp the detail layers for the Lavender, large flower and flower centres.
  4. Using a Jet Black Watercolour Brush Marker, splatter the panel. Set aside to dry.
  5. Cut a piece of Gold thread 7xwidth of the panel and fold in half. Repeat this, folding the threads in half twice more, then adhere the ends to the back of the panel with double sided adhesive.
  6. Stamp sentiment from the coordinating stamp set, in Obsidian and die cut with the optional add-on die set. Pop up on foam adhesive on the card panel, over the thread.

Spark Joy: Folk Mandala

Foil & Ink Blending

  1. Foil the Folk Mandala plate in Matte Silver Glimmer Foil, onto Neenah 80lb A2 panel.
  2. Using the coordinating stencils, quickly colour the Mandala using inks from Cherry Blossom & Sea Shore ink families.
  3. Trim the panel down by 1/8th inch off each side, centering the Mandala on the panel.
  4. Tear a piece of Delicate Lines Washi Tape and adhere to the lower right hand side, folding the edge over to secure on the back.
  5. Over this Washi Tape, layer a small piece of torn vellum, and a simple die cut sentiment. (TIP! Stack 2x scrap cardstock with 1x Silver Brushed metallic for added dimension.)
  6. Adhere onto an a2 panel of pink cardstock. (TIP! Start with a coloured cardstock and darken by ink blending your chosen shade; this is so much quicker than starting with white cardstock!)

Foil on Mirror Cardstock

  1. Foil the Folk Mandala in black Glimmer foil on Gold mirror cardstock, then fussy cut around the whole thing.
  2. Dry emboss an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb with the Faceted Frame 3d embossing folder and adhere your foiled Mandala on foam adhesive.
  3. Ink blend ‘dream’ from the Falling Stars stencil with Rhodolite Crisp Dye ink on up from the bottom and add some Tanzanite coming down from the top to change the tone a little. Die cut with the coordinating die and stack another 2x die cuts behind for dimension.
  4. Die cut the second half of your sentiment from 3x white cardstock and then an offset layer of Rhodolite glitter cardstock from the Pink Brilliance Gradient set.
  5. Adhere both parts of your sentiment beneath your Mandala.
  6. Embellish with black acrylic dots.

Please be aware:

As part of my Design Team and Guest Design work I do often receive free products to use, but I only ever recommend products that I genuinely love.

Also, I know how incredibly lucky I am to have these opportunities, but you don’t always NEED the newest products or the ‘full set’.
So please don’t feel that you need everything.
I like to show a variety of brands and products; this way there will be something for everybody to enjoy.
