Hanging Planter & Colour Challenge

 I was inspired to make another card for the Time Out Challenge, because I really like photo inspiration.

I've had these hanging basket dies for quite a while and this is the first card I've completed using the dies.
I stamped and white embossed the pattern on the left and softened the edges of the kraft panel, by swiping ink and embossing.  The sentiment was also white embossed.
I coloured the die-cuts with Zig Markers and Cosmic Shimmer Powder. 
Stamps: Kaisercraft diamond pattern; CASual Friday sentiment
Dies: The Greetery Macra-Made For You, Macra-Made Fillers

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-

My next card was inspired by the colours at Color Throwdown.

I thought it was time to have fun with the Altenew Metallic Watercolour Paints. 

They are really beautiful,  creamy and gorgeous colours. I did use a bit of Twinkling H2Os as well. The paper is Canson Acrylic. 
Stamp: Altenew Magnolia's for Her
Die: Poppy Stamps Gentle Leaf
