Altenew August Inspiration Challenge

Erum is a fantastic artist whose card is the inspiration for this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge...I took a lot of inspiration from both her cards to create mine..I did a whole lot of heat embossing on Vellum and wasn't sure if I would be able to put it all together...but I did...and here is my card..

This is Erum's card and the colours for this challenge...


I started by creating the background on the white front panel using Altenew sketched lines stencil and vintage photo Distress Oxide ink...I then splattered some gold paint on it...I adhered this panel to a white card base once it was dry...

I stamped all the flower and leaf images on Vellum using watermark ink and heat embossed all of them using some gold embossing powder...I then used various Distress Inks and a bit of water to colour in all these images...I have used peacock feather,mermaid lagoon,forest moss and ground espresso shades here...I also coloured in a couple of images using gold watercolour..

I splattered these images with gold paint as well and once dry,I cut them all out and adhered them to the card front using some multi medium adhesive...

I stamped the sentiment on a white piece of cardstock using Altenew dark chocolate dye ink and layered it with gold glitter cardstock before adhering it to the card with some foam squares...I have used a few tiny gold sequins to embellish my card...
