Simon Say Stamps Wednesday Challenge/ Use a Stencil/ Altenew

I am so excited to be a part as GD, called Designer Spotlight for this moth. 

Today I share you my second post.

Another great challenge start today... and I can use my Altenew stuff I have at home... 
I meet Tasnim and her husband on the first Show in Los Angeles on the CHA. It was the first year of Altenew and I can look how fast they grow. She made this with a lot of love and I like it.

Use a Stencil, Altenew

play and win

I combine Altenew with flower, a lot of flowers. I wasn't sure, if I have a stencil. I found two in my stuff, but only one will work for my idea. So I used them. It made so fun, so I made two cards for this challenge. On both cards the stencil is the background.

How I made this card?

At first I made my own A2 (US format) card. I use the stencil from Altenew, called "Grid" Stencil and lay it over the A2 card base. I add Altenew Ink Linestone... to the back, but not on the whole card. So it should be a little white around the edges.  I use my Altenew Metallic Watercolor to sprinkle a little gold to the background (it is hard to see on the picture).
Next I stamped the image on a watercolor friendly paper and color the flowers. I use also my Poychromos from Farber Castel to bring in a few details. After coloring I cut out the plants with the die's and arrange it on the card. If I was satisfied i glue down the image. I use foam tape for the big flower to lift it a little but. I add a sentiment from an other set, called "Classic Beauty" and add a few Altenew Enamels. 

How I made this card?

This time I stamped the flower first and mask this, before I made the stencil background. After I made the background I colored the stem and the bud. I color all with my Watercolor from Altenew. and let it try. after than I use also my pencils to made a little details in the flowers. I add a golden accent to the flower and sprinkle color to the card (red, green and golden). I use my white Gelly Pen to made a few dots in the middle to the flower, after than I use a findliner in black and draw the flower (outline and a few details). I think it looks great, so I decided me top add a sentiment. 
Now it comes another fun part, I cut the picture in a smaller rectangle and add it to a golden glitter paper from my stuff. I add both to a black paper and all together to my A2 card (red).
