Altenew Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Release Blog Hop...


Welcome!  I am so glad you stopped in today!  I am getting together with my friends at Altenew, hopping with a brand new Build-A-Flower.  If you are new to Altenew, a Build-a-flower is a gorgeous stamp set, each with a different flower.  The stamps usually come with an outline image, and then several images to stamp in different colors to create a gorgeous shaded, dimensional bloom. They make the stamping so easy because each set comes with a stamping guide to show you just how to create your own blooms.  You can also get your own subscription!  Each month when a new build-a-flower is released, it comes to you at a discounted price!  And if they sell out, your stamp set is guaranteed to come to you each month!

Here is a quick shot of the Japanese Mum and its coordinating dies...


There will be lots of beautiful flowers on today's blog hop. This new flower image is so pretty.  It's each to stamp with different colors and its even more fun to color.  So many bits of shading and highlights and I had to give a it shot!

Here is my card for today's hop...

Altenew Japanese Mum

To create this card I first added I some light gray ink on a white card base using Altenew's Halftone Stencil.  I lined the bottom of the card with a strip of black card stock and then added in the mum with foam tape.  I colored each petal with Copics and added in shading and highlights all around.  I tucked in the green leaves behind the main flower.  Last, I stamped the sentiment so it was tucked right into the petals on the flower.  Even though there is detail in the background, I love how clean and simple this card is.
