Hello, Altenew fans! Enza here to share a new layout highlighting the gorgeous Prettiest Pomander Stamp Set.
The cluster of flowers and leaves in this set is perfect and allows for a variety of color combinations, which is always fun.
Let's see how the layout came together!
I started by stamping each pomander with different shades of the same color, using the new Altenew Crisp Dye Inks:
- Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Magenta
- Iceberg, Eastern Sky, Ultramarine, Azurite
- Sunray, Chamomile, Marigold, Snapdragon
- Fresh Leaf.
I love how intense and vibrant these colors are! I stamped three of each color combo, as I wanted to create bigger clusters with them.
For my background, I sprayed a smooth white cardstock with Altenew's Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray in Soft Lilac, concentrating on one side of the page. I then arranged the groups of pomanders to form a visual triangle. I felt like something was missing, so I used a cut file to back the clusters and create an extra layer, which in my opinion adds to the delicate look of the design.I adhered everything down with foam tape to achieve dimension, making sure to let the outer leaves and flowers curve a bit inward for a natural look.
Once the background was ready, I matted the photo with white cardstock and a patterned paper from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. The sentiments in the Reason to Smile Stamp Set were perfect for this photo; I stamped a few, trimmed them to size and layered them on the left side of my picture, using foam tape only for a few of them so to create more movement.
Also from the Live Your Dream Collection are the blue and orange branches that I tucked under the cut files. A small tag at the top of the photo and a few more Soft Lilac splatters finished the layout.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you to use the Prettiest Pomander Stamp Set for your next scrapbook layout.
