 Here is the layering guide to get a gorgeous layered flower and leaves.

You should have come here from
Maryam Perez's blog. If not start from the beginning at Altenew Card Blog.  
Today, I've got 2 cards for you.
For my first card, I started by sponging some blue ink to the mat layer. I then applied Embossing Paste through the Broken Chevrons Stencil. I then stamped the flowers and leaves usinmg the GORGEOUS layering stamps. I used the Warm Gray, Warm and Cozy, Tea Party ink sets. I then stamped the sentiment from the Label Love stamp set using black ink.

To finish I adhered some Sparkling Crystals from Studio Katia.
For my next card, I went for no-line watercolor look using all the layers. I stamped the base layer using antique linen distress ink onto watercolor paper and then went over it using daniel Smith watercolors. I then stamped each layer and went over it with my watercolors.


To finish, I stamped the sentiment using black ink.
