Aaahhh, Henna Elements, how I have coveted you… I have seriously wanted this beautiful stamp set from Altenew for so long now, in fact, since they launched, nearly 2 years ago. Finally managed to get my hands on it and boy it doesn’t disappoint. Love it!
Isn’t it gorgeous! It is plain to see my inspiration here – I loved the bright colours and thought they would work perfectly with the graphic florals of Henna Elements and the gold embossing adds that extra special touch.
To make my card I first stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (an ink that plays nicely with alcohol pens) and shaded with Spectrum Noir pens. I added a little detail with a gold pen, then reinked the images with Versamark ink and embossed with Wow Rich Gold embossing powder. I popped up a couple of the flowers on foam tape to add a bit of depth and added the sentiment which is from the same stamp set.
I am still playing along with Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day colouring challenge (although I have missed a couple of days due to being poorly) and with the practice I am beginning to find it easier to find blending sets and add in shadows. I am finding some colours easier to blend than others – don’t know if this is just me? Still some work to do but I think I am getting better!
Thank you for taking the time out to read my post. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think, Cx
