You make Me Happy with Altenew ....

Happy Monday everyone !! 

I wanted to share this card I created using 
the beautiful Hibiscus Bouquet 
stamp set from Altenew . 

For this card I was inspired by the May 2017 Inspiration Challenge . 
The photo along with the vibrant colors instantly inspired me . 

 I began by stamping my images using Memento Ink in the color Desert Sand , 
it is my favorite for the soft look . 
For my card base and layers I used Strathmore Bristol 100lb paper.
 I then began by adding a soft layer to each of the larger flowers using Winsor & Newton water color marker in the color Pale Rose , for the smaller flowers I used my Zig Clean Color Brush Marker in the color Pink Flamingo . 
 I let them dry and then added my deeper tones . 
I used Winsor & Newton water color marker in the color Magenta , 
then added a bit of Pink and Peach Pink (Zig ) . 
 For the leaves I actually used Copic markers . 
I mixed my YG17 , along with the G99 for the depth .  
I then added a bit of G94 and YG13 . 

 For the scalloped base I used the large scalloped die from the Scalloped Nice & Neat dies from Neat & Tangled  ( they are back in stock ) . 
I added Picked Raspberry Distress Ink all around the edges .

I hope you enjoy the card I created to share with you today ! 
Wishing you all a wonderful and Blessed day !
