a CAS Card with an Altenew Cover Plate

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share a Clean and Simple card with this cover plate from Altenew.
Shop Altenew here

Thank you

 To achieve the soft gradient colors, I used Bristol paper for easy watercolor/ink blending.
 Each time I inked up the colors, I also sprayed a few spritz of water and let it dry. I used Altenew Artist Markers to color the tiny pieces at the center.


Once it's dry, you get the soft glow and the colors are perfectly blended. The shine you see are from Spectrum Noir Sparklers Pens. I used Shades of Spring for this card.

Thank you #1

I did, however, can not resist using Layered Medallion Cover Plate A. You see, I added the flower at the center by using only the flower in the middle. For the sentiment, I used Layered Cupcake (love the fonts on that set!!). The tiny droplets you see are Nuvo Crystal Drops.
