Altenew | Fun with Alcohol Inks and Vellum

It seems like spring is here (although probably not the last couple very wet and chilly days ;)). Every day, more early spring flowers start blooming, including one of my favorite things about spring – magnolias! These flowers are so magnificent I almost sometimes cannot believe they’re real. Seeing a magnolia tree starting to bloom the other day inspired me to create the card I’m sharing today. Although I did a little twist of color scheme, stepping off the traditional pinks towards the blue color combo.

Altenew | Dynamic Duo: Floral Whimsy

I typically start the card-making process by choosing a color combination, possibly because I lack confidence in my color skills, and this step holds particular importance.

I tend to lean toward vibrant hues and unconventional color pairings. In the case of the card I’m sharing today, I opted for a color scheme featuring bold reds and soft blues.
