Also used:
Distress Ink: Twisted Citron

To begin I second generation stamped some small butterflies randomly around the edge of my 7x7 card blank, in Smokey Grey versafine ink

Altenew Watercolour Frames stamp set

Good morning everyone
Hope you are all well xx

Today it's my weekly Monday morning blog showcasing products for
Bumbleberry Papercrafts

I'm sharing a sample I made using one of the newly released Altenew stamp set

Watercolour Frames

This is such a versatile stamp set, creating beautiful frames to images and sentiments but can also be used alone as a texture stamp.
Over the next few weeks I hope to show you different looks from these stamps , from pretty to grungy..so watch out for them xx

I also used:
Distress Inks : Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass and Dusty Concord
Stencil
Gold embossing powder
Versmark Ink pad



For this sample I decided to use the Spotlight technique so I cut 3 mats in black card,  in decreasing size, and 3 mats in white card, slightly smaller.

I set the black mats to one side

Using temporary adhesive tape, I stuck the 3 white mats on top of each other, in the design I wished the spotlight to be

Using Versmark ink I stamped the outline decorative circle randomly over the 3 mats but ensuring one was stamped centrally on the smallest mat

I heat embossed them with gold embossing powder 

I then stamped the plain outline circle, in Versmark ink,  randomly over the mats and again heat embossed in gold

I stamped the sentiment in the centre of the smaller mats frame, in Versmark ink and heat embossed in gold

Using my distress inks I blended them all over the 3 mats

I also used them to ink through a stencil, to add more depth to the card

Once dry I carefully disengaged the 3 mats then adhered each of them to a black card mat

The biggest layer was adhered to card blank first then I carefully lined up and adhered the middle sized mat and then the smallest mat, to complete the sample 

I hope you enjoyed looking and please feel free to leave comments. .I love to read them xx

I cut a square of black card and a slightly smaller square of white card. I set the black mat aside

I die cut out the mixed media 

I stamped one of the Cherry Blossoms onto white card, in Versmark ink, and heat embossed in gold embossing powder 

I coloured it in with my kuretake clean colour pens 

I stamped the True Friends sentiment in black versafine ink, near the top corner of the white card

I first cut 2 square black mats then cut 2 white ones slightly smaller than the black. 

I set the black card mats to one side

I put some reusable tape on the back of the smaller white mat and placed it on the larger white mat, in the position I wanted the Spotlight stamp to be

I inked up the stems only, on the outline stamp, in Cracked Pistachio Distress inks and stamped them over both white mats

I then inked up the outline flower head in Dusty Concord DI and stamped them in place

The stems on the solid stamp were also inked in Cracked Pistachio DI, spritzed with water and stamped over the outline image 

The solid flower heads were inked up in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Inks, spritzed with water and stamped over the outline image 

The sentiments were stamped in black onyx versafine ink 

Gently removing the smaller white card mat from the larger one, both were then matted onto the black card mats

The larger card mat was attached to card blank first then the smaller one was adhered in place with foam pads, ensuring the stamped images were carefully lined up. 

Pearls and clear gems finished off the sample
