Altenew – Sketch Challenge #9

Hello, Altenew fans!

It’s Enza and I am excited to be hosting the Sketch Challenge #9.

The sketch I made is based on one of the first layouts I created with Altenew products and you can find it here.

Stencil as a stitching template @Altenew @enzamg #scrapbooking #stencils

I followed the sketch pretty closely. Other than the variation in color, the design is pretty much the same as my previous layout.

I used the Floral Drape Stencil to give some color to the background and create the diagonal design. With the help of a mini dauber, I blended the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks together:

  • for the leaves: Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades,
  • for the flowers: Pink Pearl and Coral Bliss, with just a touch of Mango Smoothie in the center.

I then adhered the Floral Flurries and Monochrome Washi Tapes onto white cardstock and fussy-cut the images to create layers and add dimension to the layout. Once I had everything in place and the photo was ready to be glued down, I used the Brush Alpha Die Set for my title. I blended Peach Perfect, Pinkalicious, and Heart Beat Crisp Dye Inks on a white smooth cardstock and used that to cut the title, which coordinated perfectly with all the other colors on the layout.

I stamped and heat-embossed some sentiments from the Amazing You Stamp Set and placed them on the top and bottom of the photo.

To finish the layout, I arranged a few more embellishments on the page, such as the camera sticker from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection and wood veneer buttons and butterflies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.
