Did you see the colouring video I made back at the end of February? You can view it on YouTube here and the blog post can be found here. I used Prismacolor pencils for colouring up the Altenew Statement Flowers and now I’ve finally completed the card as well. I cut it out by hand and added some foam tape to the back of it, sprayed some black ink on a kraft card base, doodled a little in the corners and used their Hello die and enamel dots to finish off the card.
I’ve finally sat down to colour up the Statement Flowers by ALTENEW using my Prismacolor pencils. I love how they turned out, and I have to admit I don’t know if I prefer the pencil or copic colouring more for these. There’ll be more pencil versions, though, that’s for sure! I used Gina K’s amalgam ink for stamping up the flower and for the sentiment.
After I had coloured it all up and used one of my stitched rectangle dies for the panel I decided to possibly ruin the whole thing. Not a good idea, I know, but with limited time testing doesn’t tend to get priority, hahaha. I’ve bought some Dylusion Ink Sprays the past week and opted to give the black one (yup, that darkest possible option) a go over my coloured panel! Thankfully it turned out alright. The sentiment is from the Dearest Friend stamp set and I’ve also used Altenew enamel dots from the New Day set as a finishing touch.
I have made my very first slimline card! You might be getting tired of them by now, but I have coloured up the Statement Flowers by ALTENEW yet again. I can’t help it, I love that stamp! This time I cut out the two flowers after I’d coloured them up. Then I used Pinkfresh slimline die to make a card base onto which I stamped a few of the leaves from the Leaf Clusters stamp set using one of the greens from the Zesty Limes ink cubes set. I used the same green to stamp the “my friend” which is also from the Leaf Clusters stamp set. The beautiful happy birthday die is also from Pinkfresh and I added some enamel dots around the text.
As it is the first time making a slimline card it’s also my first time trying to take a photo of one. It seemed a bit empty without props, so I figured I’d give that a go for a change. I think it worked well enough for a first try!

I absolutely love the Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. It’s not that often I take time to colour up in no-lines, but so far I’ve only done just that with this stamp. I use the fade-out ink by InkOn3 because it’s awesome. This time I opted for a lot bolder colours by using red. I’ve hand cut the flower after colouring it up.
The card itself is made by die cutting the Trellis die in white and gluing it back onto white cardstock. The hello die is also by Altenew and so are the green enamel dots which are part of the Green Fields set. Lastly I embossed, in gold, a sentiment from Mathia Design.
Let’s have a proper close-up as well for a change.

I love this stamp (and it’s actually in stock as I type up this blog post as well, for a change!). I know I recently coloured it up in pale pink (see here), but I couldn’t help myself and had to colour it up in yellow as well. Yellow is really not my colour, but it is a very pretty colour when it comes to flowers so I figured it would be perfect for this stamp! The stamp, Statement Flowers, is by ALTENEW. This time I turned the stamp set around a bit more to make a low card instead of a tall one. It’s great that you can use the stamp in either direction!
I used Inkon3’s Fadeout Ink to get the no-lines effect. I love that ink pad! It’s by far my favourite of the ink pads I have tried for no-lines colouring! I stamped the sentiment (from the Paint-a-Flower: Poppy set) using Evergreen from the Zesty Limes mini cubes set, the smaller sentiment stamp is from the Statement Flower stamp set, but it’s in quite a faint shade of yellow, so not easy to photograph. The enamel dots are from Altenew as well, but unfortunately they didn’t photograph very well either this time as they are such a pale green colour.
Here is another photo of the card.
