The carousel has always been my favourite funfair ride, so the Altenew Carousel stamp set caught my eye. It's a really sweet mini set, perfect for scrapbooking but also looks great on a card, and is sure to make someone smile.
I started by stamping the carousel image on to white card in black versafine ink. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. You could use versamark ink and a black embossing powder to achieve the same effect.
I also added an embossed sentiment from the Altenew Celebrate stamp set, which is a mini sentiment set. It has some lovely greetings.
I used colouring pencils to add a sunset sky behind the carousel. I like the soft effect of the pencils. Try Zig Clean Colour pens or ink blending for a different look.
To make this into a card, I cut it down with a stitched rectangle die, layered onto a black rectangle, then adhered to a white card base. The black border really helps the image pop on the card.
Have a lovely day,
