Coral Sunset

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is fun, relaxing and crafty!  Today's make and share features a gorgeous floral stamp, lovely sentiment, heat embossing and coloring.

My A2 sized card started with stamping the florals from the Altenew Paint-A-Flower April monthly subscription set and heat embossing with gold embossing powder.  I stamped the same image on the top and the bottom; just rotating the card in the Misti.  I colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils, stamped the sentiment. which is from the Altenew "Beautiful Quotes" stamp set and added a snippet of designer paper along the left side.  For the final bells and whistles, clear sequins were added.

Coloring the image took a bit of time but I had my cuppa tea so I settled in and enjoyed the process.  I love the look of the completed design.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
