A beautiful day card

I have made my first card using the new stamp I have just got called Beautiful Day by Altenew.  It is such a gorgeous stamp.

I did the stamping of the main flower in the set and the leaves using the pink and green sets of Crisp ink cubes from Altenew, but I coloured the smaller and longer flower stamps with copics and other alcohol markers I have.  I then did a partial cut of the circle die, so that I only cut an aperture up to the flowers, and then fussy cut around the bouquet .

I have made a panel to go behind the aperture using a stencil and some gel medium mixed with some sparkle glitter.  This is great, because when it dries, you only really see the glitter and not the medium.  

The sentiment was done with the Altenew Calligraphy Alpha stamp set and then fussy cut out.  

I am really please with how the card came out, I wanted a soft look with the flowers.  I am sure I will be using this stamp set a lot!

Here is a video on the process of making the card.

Thank you for the video Helen. Those Altenew stamps look very interesting and you have convinced me that I do need a Misti.
