Altenew for Paper Funday

Hello my friends and welcome to March 2024 Paper Funday Challenge where anything goes! I choose Altenew as one of our sponsors this month. I had so much fun with a set I have had in my stash and has not received enough use...Golden Garden Stamp Set and Coordinating Die.
I made several cards, as usual, for once I have everything out I like to try different ideas. I used Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress White Heavystock Paper for all the cards. It is a 130lb. smooth surface and takes mixed media well. In this case I watercolored on it and it worked perfectly! I used Altenew's Watercolor 36 Pan Set to drop in a little bit of sketchy color.
I also used sentiments from Altenew's Inky Bouquet stamp set. I like the unusual font in this set.
The card below uses Altenew's Dotted Tile Debossing Cover Die in the background with an Erin Lee Creatives Rattan Arch 4 Die. One simple flower die cut from the Golden Garden set and a sentiment from Inky Bouquet finishes the card perfectly for my taste.

Love this set!
For the background of this next card I used MFT Stamps Colorful Confetti Background Red Rubber Background Stamp with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat set with Ranger's Princess Gold Embossing Powder. I like the subtle textured background.
The hexagon shape is a die from Spellbinders called Essential Hexi-Gems Dies. I cut the floral image from the Golden Garden Set with the Coordinating Die and also cut it from black cardstock. This way I created a shadow for the focal image. The cute little sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps Inside Snarky Birthday set and the Honey Cut Coordinating Die Set. I am such a fan of sentiments with coordinating dies.
Thank you for sticking to the end. Come play along with us at The Paper Funday Challenge this month and check out our fabulous sponsors.
