Stamping Solid Images with Altenew

Happy Saturday to you, friends!

I hope you checked out yesterday's Altenew January 2017 new release blog hop. If you have not hopped yet, it is not too late to comment for a chance to win $30-50 Gift card to Altenew online store

I had SO much fun with these new stamps and of course,  I simply can't stop at just making one...


You can purchase this set:
Altenew here  
Simon Says Stamp here.
I am especially partial to these solid images. Due to its size and design, there are so many fun techniques that you can do with them! For me, artichokes should have a tint of pinkish/purple on the inner layer.

Don't these artichoke photo have a choke-full of glorious colors!? 
 When I stamped this image, I didn't have Shades of Purple or Rose Petal.
I used the pink pad from Four Scoops . I think it kind of worked!

Yes to a video. Your artichoke looks natural. The sentiment you used is perfect. I think these veggie stamps will get many uses.

Your inking is dead on...that artichoke looks good enough to eat and I love how you added your own special touches to the embellishing. That is one fantastic's wonderful that you chose to ink it in two different colors.
