Altenew April Challenge ...

Happy Friday ! 
So happy to be back with you today sharing another 
water colored card <3 .....Yes I am HOOKED on 
this beautiful stamp set Magnolias For Her 
and my Zig Clean Color Brush markers .

I am pretty sure I will be using my Zigs 
on upcoming projects <3 . For today I created my card 
inspired by the beautiful inspiration photo 
from Altenew for the April Challenge . 
It is amazing !!  I knew from the moment I saw 
it that I would want to create something with 
these colors. 

I had an idea in mind ....but, the cards I created ended up 
looking completely different from what I had envisioned , lol ! 
 This was actually the second card I created , 
I will be sharing the first one tomorrow
 (lol, the order I took my photos in determined which one I ended up sharing today ) . 
 I die cut my base and scalloped layer using Craftin Desert Divas Fancy Frames Dies
I decided to use Canon WaterColor Cold Press paper for these cards. 

I stamped my images using Memento Ink in Desert Sand. 
I then colored the images in using my Zigs.
 I will list the colors below <3. 

I hope you enjoy this card and feel inspired to create ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!
