Here is my project-

I just adore Altenews layered flowers, they are so beautiful. I was having trouble with the layering until I watched this video from Jennifer McGuire, and now I breeze through making layered images! Here is the material list for this card-
  1. Stamps & Dies: Vintage Roses, Build a Flower Rose, Painted Greetings (Altenew).
  2. Ink: roses ( Rose Red, Orchid, Opera Pink-VersaColor, Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide), leaves (Sage, Bamboo-Versacolor, Peeled Paint Distress Oxide). Sentiment ink is Rose Red Versacolor.
  3. Other: Cricut quatrefoil with Brusho's, pink paper from scrap stash.
Have a great day.
