Blue Lotus Card with Altenew

Hi friends!

Happy New Year’s Eve! How are you all doing today?

It’s been a few weeks since I blogged the last time … December is always so busy with all the preparations going on, meeting friends and sending out Christmas cards, too! I am sure a lot of you can relate. 😀 Now that Christmas is over I am back with a non-holiday card! I mostly send out birthday cards so I “shopped my stash” and made my first card using the beautiful Lotus stamps set from Altenew.


Altenew Lotus Card August Challenge

I used masking paper to stamp my three Lotus blossoms and also to protect them when inkblending over the bottom of my card front with yellow and green-ish traditional Distress Inks. For coloring I used Sapphire blue liquid watercolor. It gives such a great intense blue!


Altenew Lotus Card 2

The colors of this card where inspired by one of my favorite cardmakers when it comes to floral cards: Erum from Vibgyor Krafts. She picked one of her amazing blue flower cards for the Altenew August Inspiration Challenge which I took inspiration from.

To finish my card I splattered gold, black and white watercolors over the Lotus blossoms and added a small birthday sentiment from Altenew’s Sketchy Cities Abroad stamp set embossed in Rich Gold embossing powder on black cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by today! I am wishing you all an amazing & healthy New Year with lots of time for papercrafting or whatever it is that makes your heart happy. ♥
