Altenew-PAF Carnations- StringArt Die

I absolutely love the outlines of the carnation and thought it would look really beautiful with white -embossing.

I anchored the stamps and stamped them strategically on the corners to achieve the maximum blooms.
This set of stamp is rather large and yet it still allows you to move around to get it positioned.

For water-coloring, my go to is almost ways the Altenew 24 Pan Set. I don't use the color red enough. I am glad that I did because the red carnations truly stand out.

I besotted with the blue, watery background; perfect to show case those attractive, vividly colored carnations. You certainly took advantage of the wonderful PAF carnation design and made something memorable! I think the red sealed the deal...

Hi, Virginia -
First, thank you for making it easy to leave a comment. I just had to hunt and search for how to do it for the last crafter (whose work is, like yours, exceptional). I LOVE your card. I think the blue background is striking and oh-so-pretty! My very favorite part of your card, however, is the way you colored the flowers' green portions. They are just gorgeous... almost like stained glass or something. So stupendously beautiful. I like the petal parts a lot as well, but the green parts are perfection.
Blessings on you now and always......
