Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

Altenew-June2019-Inspiration


The June 2019 Inspiration Challenge at Altenew is a beauty - well. aren't they always?  My friend [and yours] Virginia Lu is hosting the challenge this month!  Hope you've seen her gorgeous card! 

Today I've used a new-to-me set called Focus on You stamp and die bundle that I bought to coordinate with the Celebrations set I've used [to death].  Take a peek … my frame is a stand-in for that urn, and it's fanciful shape mimics the goose's feathers!  Tell me if you agree...


Copics: R37, Y35 and 38, and YG93 for the greens
Splattered with Altenew water color pan set
 
Hope you have something fun to look forward to this weekend!  Thanks for spending your hard earned time with me, and for leaving such kind words!  Much appreciated, my friends!

My goodness Michele, this is stunning. What a beautiful way to use the lovely ornate frame (that does mimic the feathers) and pretty flowers. Such a wonderfully encouraging card. Thank you for sharing.

I know, I know, they really need to make this die a stand alone, I know!

I could not agree (about the stand-alone die) and love this card more, Michelle! Love the white space and use of colors! So glad that you join the fun over Altenew June Inspiration Challenge! WONDERFUL!

What a beauty, Michele! The gorgeous frame looks just perfect to hold the small flowers, and yes, could be goose's feathers... creativity is the limit!
