So I cut all the layers of the CAF: Anemone blooms and leaves from several failed Artist Marker refill 'alcohol art' panels. Then adhered them together according to the layering guide on the packaging. Next I paired them with the Burlap Texture Dye, which I just love for adding an Autumn feel to this card. And finished by embellishing with Sea Shore enameled dots.

*******
Recently, I've fallen in love with Altenew's Simple Coloring Stencils which coordinate with some of their floral stamp sets. I wanted to see if I could create my own stencil to build up a Simply inked flower with CAF: Anemone dies. It worked beautifully.
Feeling like MacGyver.... 'I love it when a plan comes together!'

https://shrsl.com/2gr6l
I cut each die form cardstock to create a STENCIL...then inked through it for a SIMPLY COLORED Anemone as the focus of this card. The leaves are inked in the same way.
Stetching my supplies for a diffent look. This was almost a one layer card with the ink blended Anemone. and leaves, but I fussy cut around the edge of the right side for a bit more interest.

EDITED to answer questions from the comment section:
Hello Lovely readers! I have had a couple of questions about the "failed" alcohole ink panels I used to cut the layers for the first card...They are my attemps at using the Artist Marker Refills to create Alcohol Ink art as seen in this video with Lydia. I have tried this technique on Acetate as well as YUPPO paper, which is ment for alcohol inks. This paper also gives that nice shine to the project :)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hoping my cards inspire your next masterpiece!!

I'm amazed at your coloring of the first card! I can't wait to attempt that on one of my own

Whiteibis said...

Love both card layouts and the burlap die is a go-with-everything die. On my wait list to get. Really nice set of floral beauty. Lovely. Off to happy hopping.

Elin Larsson said...

Wow what beautiful Cards and what wonderful idea with the stencil!

Becca Yahrling said...

Love the composition of the first card using the burlap texture die; I love that look. Both cards are beautiful.

anni said...

Beautiful cards! Brilliant idea with the stencils! Another technique I need to try! Thank you for the inspiration!

gail said...

I am going to try this technique/stencil cutting my own. It looks so dimensional

Alice Zimmer said...

Beautiful cards. Using the stencils opens up the possibilities for this set.

Carolyn said...

My favorite is the 'hello' card but both are beautiful. I like the burlap background.

Audrey L. said...

I love your cards! I will have to try the stencil technique and I love the burlap die.

Jade said...

Gorgeous! I like the red color! Your cards are amazing. Thank you for the stencil idea.

Liz O. said...

Gorgeous CAF set! These big anemones can be used in so much more than cards! Love all your cards, you did an outstanding job showcasing this set of dies Laura Jane! Thanks for the inspiration!

Mendy said...

Love both of your cards. I think the first one is my favorite.

KindredEsprit said...

I love how you "upcycled" and creatively used your alcohol panels in the first card. It looks perfect! And the second card looks fabulous; the black sentiment really pops! Love the colour palette of both cards. So insiring!

RobiW said...

These are all so gorgeous! Great coloring.

Nurse Ratchet said...

Beautiful colour choice. Cannot wait for my set to arrive!!!

Kathy said...

Oh, I just ordered this die set, and seeing your card makes me chomping at the bit to get it! Love your colorings, but one question: what does ' several failed Artist Marker refill 'alcohol art' panels ' mean? When you refill your markers you hold them over cardstock? Sounds like a great idea...when I refill my markers it's a mess!
Anyway, I totally love the first card, with the burlap die. And I am going to try your stencil technique too. Thanks for sharing some beautiful ideas!

Nandini said...

The cards are beautiful. I love the new set. It is amazing.

Linda BL said...

Both cards are very, very pretty. I am partial to the first card with the burlap panel. It looks very fall-like. I also have a question--How did you get the colors to look so glossy? Very pretty look! Also, like your idea of making your own stencils from card stock to color the different flower layers.

Unknown said...

Laura Jane you absolutely amaze me in that you created your own stencil. Not sure I understood the process as I'm a visual learner, but still & all, I'm amazed. I absolutely love your first card from your "failed" alcohol ink pieces. It turned out to be gorgeous using them. I really like the burlap die as well. Thanks.
