Negative colouring with Altenew

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven’t posted for quite a while. I’ve been spending too much time surfing the web and not actually finishing a project let alone blogging about it.

https://sevenhillscrafts.co.uk has a new monthly challenge -Geometry. Now I haven’t got any supplies from SHC that lend itself to this theme, so I had to think outside the box.

I have been wanting to try the technique of negative colouring so I decided to use some altenew stamps on a piece of patterned paper I had printed off a free Crafter’s Companion CD ROM. I came up with this card –

I stamped the images with versafine onyx black and then coloured the negative space with a black sharpie pen. You could use whatever alcohol marker you have.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
