Die-Cut Florals, Altenew Challenge #2 & a Sketch

 I haven't played with this stamp/die set from Concord & 9th nearly enough, so I made a few cards today. This is one of them...

I stamped the background with Memento Desert Sand and blended with an aquabrush. 
The flowers and foliage die-cuts were coloured with Zig Markers and aquabrush. 
Stamps: Concord & 9th 'Just Because'; HerobArts (sentiment)
Dies: Concord & 9th 'Just Because'; Stamplorations 'Stitched Rectangle'

I'm sharing at the following:-

My next card is my second for the current Altenew Inspiration Challenge.

I stamped the background with Altenew 'Halftone Circles and Altenew Inks.  I stamped and fussy cut the flower from 'Pen Sketched Flowers' and the sentiment from 'Thinking of You'.

This one was inspired by the sketch at CASE This Sketch

I  stamped the images on a smooshed background made with  inks and Cosmic Shimmer Powder and fussy cut the large leaves.  I stamped the image again and adhered the leaves. I splattered some of the ink and stamped the sentiment. 
I'm sharing at the following challenges:-

  9. You've been so busy Jenny!! Are you in lockdown where you are in Victoria?? Hope you and your family are safe from COVID. I can see why you love these dies, they are gorgeous and love the soft colour you gave them too. Really like the beige background you created, the natural colour makes the pink and green pop and goes so well with the kraft cardstock too. Gorgeous card and I'm always so happy to see you at TIME OUT!
