New brand in town...

Hi! Priya Sivaraj and the The Craft Shop recently hosted the Crafty Premier League which had contests for teams of crafters. I had a blast participating and was very happy when my team won. Part of my prize was a beautiful stencil by Craftreat which is the home brand of The Craft Shop. I have been a long time customer of The Craft Shop and I love stencils! So I had to pull it out immediately. Here is the card I made.

I started with a piece of white cardstock. I lightly brushed distress ink over the paper with a stencil brush and then applied more distress ink through the Craftreat Shepherds Check stencil to create my background. I then stamped the images from the Altenew Striped Florals stamp with different colors of Memento dew drops ink and die cut them using the matching dies.

I arranged the pieces till I was happy and then adhered the pieces with glue. Couple of then I popped up with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Painted Greetings by Altenew. I stamped it on a scrap of white paper with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP. I used a teal ink to color the scrap and then trimmed it to size.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Altenew June Inspiration Challenge:
I was inspired by the bouquet and the pink and purple hues of the flowers. I also liked the subtle background.
