Fantastic Forals - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
It will be a short post from me today as I will be half way through my thirteen hour shift by the time this publishes and I am beyond tired tonight & so looking forward to a much needed day off on Friday.

Altenew logo


 goodies on our creations this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we'd love to see them.


My card for this weeks challenge features the Altenew pretty Lacy Scrolls & Painted Butterflies stamp sets. These are both so pretty that I wanted to use both stamp sets on this card as they go so well together.
I have stamped the butterflies in Hero Arts shadow ink & then I layered some of the additional stamps in the set over it by stamping them with various Simon Says Stamp ink pads. & then added a little more shading here & there with my copics.
The pretty flowers were also stamped with pale shadow ink and then coloured up with my copics. After colouring the flowers I used a gel pen to highlight before fussy cutting & adhering onto my card.
The background was created by giving it a light watercolour wash with distress ink & stamping a few of the scrolls from the Lacy Scrolls stamp set & finally "splattering" a variety of distress inks on it.

Can you believe there are absolutely NO embellishments! This was for no other reason than I was incredibly tired & was relieved to have managed to make the card during what little time I have had off work so was happy to settle for it as it is.

The copic colours I've used are -
flowers - B23, B21, B41, B99, leaves - G94, YG63, YG61, YG05, G43, butterflies - B23, B21, B41.
