Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge With Altenew!

By | 05/23/2018

I recently received a personalized stamp set from Altenew.  They sent their customers a stamp set as a gift to celebrate their 4th Anniversary.

I couldn’t resist playing with it and using it for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge!

I love that they made a stamp just for me with my name on it!!!  I feel special!  (That is all it takes!)

In the picture above, I played around with an emboss resist technique using clear embossing powder and a light wash of some of my favorite Altenew ink colors.  I will mount that on a card tomorrow.

For the card that I’m sharing today, I attempted a no line marker technique.  I’m embracing the imperfections on this one!  I keep practicing this technique and one of these days, I will master it.

Today is not quite that day!

I got a little heavy handed with the Altenew Ink Spray.  (In all honesty, I was trying to get the card finished and my daughter called.  I spritzed while trying to balance the phone on one shoulder.  When will I learn to use speaker phone?)

I love these ink sprays.  They shimmer.  You can never have enough shimmer and sparkle.

The strip of paper is from My Favorite Things.  I love their 6 x 6″ paper collections.  They are fabulous.

I used my Altenew Alcohol Artist Markers which I noticed they are selling in sets of 4 now.  I love these alcohol markers.  I love that they come in coordinating sets and I don’t have to think about what colors to use.  The yellows and greens are my absolute favorites.

The sentiment is from Altenew’s Dream Big stamp set which has a layered butterfly and coordinating die.  I can’t wait to sit down and have time to play with that.  It’s so pretty.  It’s a tiny set that is really inexpensive but so versatile.  Another reason to love Altenew!!

The spray that I used is the Antique Silver.  Had I sprayed it from a higher distance, I would have gotten smaller droplets.

Here is the sketch that I started with:
