Alota Cards

Here are two cards I made for the Alota sketch challenge on the Paper Craft Planet forum. Helene sent me some new stamps as I'm on the Alota DT, so I thought I'd use them straight away.

The first one has been made with 3 stamps plus a sentiment stamp all from Alota. You can find them all here on the new stamps page. The papers are from a DCWV pad called "Summer stack".

My second card is using a St Patrick stamp and sentiment. I stamped the sentiment into the middle of the mirror with shamrocks and clear embossed it. The mirror has been coloured with promarkers and I used a gold pen for the frame. The papers are from a HOTP monthly kit and the blooms are by Prima.

Helene has loads of new stamps out and you can see them all on the "New Release" page on the Alota website here.
