Hello!

I’m here today with a new card. I stamped a background and I’m pretty happy with the result. The photos, though, need some improvement. I find this color palette especially tricky to photograph…

 

Celebrate this day

 

I stamped the florals with Altenew inks, VersaMagic and Memento Dew Drop. Die cut three butterflies from the panel and added a shadow behind with three layers of black cardstock, and then adhered the butterflies on top. This allows the shadow to show through, even if the butterflies are flattened to go in the mail.

 

Challenges:

 

Fusion Challenge Australia Day – Fusion is celebrating this day in honour of Australian design team members. In case you missed it, Australia Day was yesterday, 26 January.

NBUS Challenge #9 – Just use a Never Before Used Schtuff… either it is a new goodie or something you’ve been keeping since prehistory without any use. The optional theme is “hidden/camouflaged word” or CASEing. I don’t have a hidden word, but I have hidden butterflies. Mine is a “N(ew)Bus”, the Altenew Floral Shadow stamp set.

Altenew January Challenge – Just be inspired by the beautiful photo and FAB sample by Yoonsun Hur.

    Love that NEWBUS, Cris, which you have colored beautifully! And I think those hidden butterflies (yes, hidden images can be steganography!) work so well with this design!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9 and for joining in the optional theme! And thank you for your kind get well wishes and prayers! I’m doing very well, considering! Hugs, Darnell
