Altenew Beautiful Details More Day 1

Hi.  It's me again with another homework project from the 
Beautiful Details Class at Altenew.

The lovely and very talented Marika is teaching this class.

Here's another project I did using stamps, markers and doodling.



I was more comfortable with the stamping technique on this one, but not with the doodling.

Overall, it was worthy of putting on a card, I think.

And this wasn't my first try with these colors.

I'm hoping to try out the lesson from day 2 this afternoon.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Peony Bouquet, Thinking of You (both Altenew)

Paper:  Heavy Weight Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry (SU)

I think you're being too hard on yourself. Your card looks lovely, including the doodling. We are usually our own worst critics. You see every line you drew, I'm just seeing the overall effect...

Lovely card! I think you did a wonderful job with the stamping, doodling and color choice.....very stunning!

I wondered how good this class will be, and it looks like you're enjoying it quite a lot. I LOVE your watercolor work on this one, and I'm guessing the doodling is on the petal outlines? That's looking good too! Definitely this homework is worthy of a card. I bet the other ones you didn't share, were too! Off to look at Day 1. Love this Miz B. TFS & Happy Father's Day to Mr. B. TFS & Hugs

Bonnie, this is beautiful. I love your colour choices and your doodling looks wonderful! As Marianne said above, we truly are our worst critics. Great work! And totally worthy of making into a final project. :)

Both cards look wonderful, Bonnie. I love Marika's work but was too intimidated to take the class. That plus lack of time to do the homework. I do have a number of Altenew stamps and love them. You won't regret getting more.

JoAnn said...

Beautiful. Great job with this technique. Love the pretty flowers and the embossing on the card base.

Vicki Finger said...

This is quite lovely, Bonnie!

Brenda said...

OMGoodness, day 2 is ever bit as beautiful as day 1's card! Loving those colors too and again I love your doodling!! I am not a doodler either, never know what to do, but your doodling looks as though it is part of the stamping. Love it!!! Hugs, Brenda

Lovely!

Susan said...

Definitely worth putting on the front of a card - it's lovely with the scattering of sequins! Love the score lines on the card base.

Mac Mable said...

Love the look of this card, Bonnie!

This and the last post featuring the Altenew stamps are both absolutely beautiful Bonnie and I adore the colours you have used and the embossing incorporated in both works so well and is really pretty. I have been away and am catching up on all the gorgeous creations I have missed. x

This is so beautiful Bonnie. I just started taking this class at Altenew and I'm struggling with the first class already, but your card is an inspiration as I have the same stamps, so I'll try again.
