First thing, in December 2020 Altenew released the Quiet Reflections Ink Bundle featuring the following NEW ink families: Northern Shore, Martian Terrain, and Nature’s Wonders. These three ink families now have the coordinating Mini Ink Decals for all your “Complete Set Syndrome” needs.

To transition from the previously mentioned inks, I used Martian Terrain and Nature’s Wonders to make this bouquet. I love the interesting and spotty airbrushed layers in this floral layering set. It reminds me of the variegated flowers and foliage. I paired this ‘unreal’ foliage with Spheres and Spirals Stamp Set for some geometric interest.

For these next few cards I was having a rainbow moment. I made a quick ink blended panel with primary colors for a pastel rainbow. Then I white heat embossed the main image from All Things A and used it as my focal point for the encouraging sentiment.

I used the same rainbow inks as the previous card and made a quick mask using the Altenew Masking Paper and a fussy cut heart. I paired the heart with the A Little Bit of Love Stamp and Die Bundle for this modern rainbow card. I decided to make my own sentiment with Fine Alphabet Die Set.

Finally, I used the Grid Cover Die to make this woven rainbow panel. The die cut itself creates this square grid. I cut many narrow strips of nearly all the colors in the Altenew Gradient Cardstocks and weaved the strips in ROYGBV order. This one is perfect for all of you who require sensory activities. I placed the Handwritten Hello Die Set on top for as simple rainbow card.
