Altenew Thank You


I adore this flower from Altenew's Hennah Elements.  It's such a great outline stamp that looks amazing coloured in, paper pieced or even left black and white.  It's probably the Altenew stamp that I use the most (although these leaves from Doodle Blooms are coming in a close second).  I used the colours from The Challenge and paper pieced the flower and leaves.  I started out by following the sketch then got a little creative with it but it's close.  Okay, time to head off to work.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower from Hennah Elements, Leaves from Doodle Blooms, Sentiment from Magnolias for Her) Altenew
Ink: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Double-Ended Banners) Papertrey Ink

Bold and beautiful! I have yet to add Altenew to my collection and with a wish list yards long, I'm not sure how much longer I can resist! Seeing your lovely bloom here is nudging me closer...

This is gorgeous, and I love the paper pieced flower. It reminds me that I bought this set and then filed it away somewhere without ever using it. Need to fix that.
