Freshly Made Altenew Blooms


It's been a long time between cards but a visit to the local paper craft fair emptied my wallet and kick-started my mojo:

Surprisingly I found a stand selling Altenew Stamps so I treated myself to a couple of different sets - the blooms here are from Floral Motifs but the sentiment's from Hennah Elements.  I gold embossed the blooms, then coloured them with Copics and created a stencilled background using Gesso. I'm popping this one over to Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp where the theme is 'anything goes.' Time Out has an 'inspired by words' challenge this week so I'm linking up over there too - the theme is 'Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart'.

Enjoy your Monday!
