Botanical YOU (2nd Take!) and Winner Announcement

Hello friends!

It's time to announce the winners of my monthly Altenew $15 GC giveaway and Mystery Happy Mail! Please check it out at the end of the post to see if you are the lucky winner!

But first, it's about a card....
This set is super trendy and easy to work with.
As far as I can see, there is no other set quite like this one!

I came up with an unusual color combo.
I knew that I wanted to use grey and then I decided to add purple and teal.

you will do great things (2)

Once I followed the guide and stamped and die cut the YOU. I then worked on the background with Grey ink. Starting with some ink-blending in the center, I used Warp Speed Stencil to accentuate the focus and color.

To go with the warp speed theme, I added splatter with Antique Silver Ink Spray Mist and Pure White Ink Spray . I love how this turned out.


"YOU will do great things" is such an empowering sentiment.
I think the added Warp Speed Stencil truly enhances the design. 

Now onto the good monthly Altenew giveaway goes to

So beautiful Virginia and the Washi on the Hi sentiment looks great. I really like the Rustic Linen stamp as I think it would be great for masculine cards (or any type but I struggle with cards for men). The Garden Silhouette set is one of my faves, I'd LOVE to see a wreath made with that!
Side note: IF I 'were' to win your mystery pack, would you mind "rubbing it with a little crafty talent" before you mail it? Thanks! HAHA

Congrats to Glennis and Teresa!

Teresa Doyle said...

Thank you so much Virginia, I am THRILLED beyond words! Congratulations to Glennis as well!

Your "unusual colour combo" is gorgeous, (I guess I should try using them more often! LOL) This is such a beautiful set, it would be awesome if Altenew had the whole alphabet in these letters.

Thanks again Virginia, I will email you now.

A truly wonderful card, the warp speed as background is genius. The sentiment is excellent for a graduate. But, I think, it's the colors that are soothing yet colorful enough to please anyone. Congratulations to the two winners. I smiled and laughed at Theresa's comment. I think we could all use some of your talent!
