Altenew Day 5 ~ second card with using a solid image

Same Painted Butterflies but each one was stamped with two different distress inks.
My sentiment is from PTI:  Keep it Simple: Praying for you.  I stamped the sentiment but I didn't like how it covered up so much of the image if I left it as a banner or a rectangle piece.  So I fussy cut around the letters and really like how it looks.
That's it...the class is done...I m sad to see it end, but since I had such good luck with this class, I will certainly be back at Altenew to try other classes...and the price is certainly right!!

Have a good weekend coming up!
Heart Hugs!


  1. Your water color cards are ALL beautiful Colleen! You are way ahead of me on this class, but I am loving all the inspiration from you and Lin! I only have 2 Altenew stamp sets, so sometimes I think the hardest part for me is choosing a stamp set to use. I'm on day 4 and just stamped a WPlus9 set, but don't like it, so back to the drawing board! Oh well, I'm in no hurry to finish as I am just really enjoying this class and loving all the new things I'm learning! :0)

  2. Your card is beautiful Colleen, I love this technique with these stamps it looks amazing! I'm so so happy that you have enjoyed the class so much :)

  3. Wow Colleen, this is stunning!!! Your colors are fabulous and now I'm really wanting that stamp set so I can CASE this card, exactly!! Thanks for enabling... ;0)
