One background design two ways - Altenew Bold Bunch

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I've been taking a few of the classes over on Altenew Acadamy, and I decided to create these two cards after taking Beyond the Basic Backgrounds class.

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I'm really loving using coloured cardstock panels, particularily the darker the better.

Rich & Luxurious embossing - Altenew Dotted Blooms

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I love to ink blend, but I love it more when it's over heat embossing.

What's more, you can easily adapt this to any stamp set you wish, or occasion. And for added variation, why not create an ombre effect with your ink blending.  Written and photos Rich & Luxurious embossing:  To start...
