Altenew Build-A-Flower: Columbine Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Altenew is releasing a new Build-A-Flower today.  The Columbine!  This flower is the state flower of my native state of Colorado.  I always loved seeing these growing wild in the mountains.   So now, I am totally loving this gorgeous stamp set!

Check it out....

Here is today's card....


Altenew


I inked up an acrylic block and added a little water and then stamped it down to create the background.  I used some of that same water with a little more of that lavender fields ink to add in the splatter.


Altenew


Using Bamboo ink, I stamped in the stems directly on the card base and also added in the sentiment in Obsidian Black Ink.  To finish off the card, I inked up the Columbines and leaves and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.  I added the blooms to the card front with foam tape.
