I felt like brightening a winter day today with the Stunning Cosmos set from Altenew, stamped in pigment inks on kraft card and details added with pencils. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
On a piece of Toned Grey card, I stamped three of the Stunning Cosmos flowers in Simon Says Stamp White pigment ink. I then added the stems with a Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink before using Faber Castell pencils to add details to the petal edges and shading to the stems. I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights to the white petals and to add variation in the flower centres.
For the sentiment, I stamped a greeting from the Faithful Feather set from Altenew in clear embossing ink on black card and white heat embossed before trimming to a banner and foam mounting over the kraft panel.
I added the panel to a white card base and then accented with New Day enamel dots.

Summary of the project which gives all the views of the card in one photo :D I’d love if you pinned and called by on Pinterest :D
This is such a lovely card (as always)! I would have loved to see how you created it on video!
I’m trying on the videos more but it is still a work in progress to fit in the extra time they take. Hopefully I’ll do more videos in 2018 :D
So pretty!!! I would love to see how you did it, as well. I could sit and watch you paint or color for hours :)
Thanks Megan, hopefully 2018 will be the year of videos for me!
Beautiful—the Stunning Cosmos was my favorite set of this release.
Such a beautiful card.
Oh my goodness Debby this is positively STUNNING! A beautiful job.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Thanks Teresa, and Merry Christmas to you too :D
Gorgeous card, Debby! I love your technique, pencils on pigment ink, and can’t wait to try it. Just pinned it.
Thanks for the continued support Dori :D
Very beautiful card. I look forward to any videos your next video. Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.
