Altenew Build-A-Flower: Semi-Double Chrysanthemum Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Here is today's creation....


Altenew


I wanted a clean and graphic look for today's card so that bloom would pop!  I used Altenew's Striped Circle Background in Obisidan Black ink for the base.


Altenew


I stamped the flowers from the set using just the fill in stamps and not the outline.  This almost gives it a realistic look!  To finish it off, I popped the flowers up with foam tape and added a simple sentiment from the Many Thanks Stamp Set.

  13. A cool card with a great layout. Graphic, as you say. The bloom itself has a similar feel to it. I bet it would look striking in grey tones.

  26. Love this card, but it really plays a trick on my eyes. The way the lines go...it feels like when you look down the road/highway in front of you on a hot day & you can SEE the heat coming off. That kind of blurry vision kinda feel yet everything is in perfect focus. I hope I'm making sense. Trying to type it out is a whole lot harder than explaining it orally. Anyway, it's simply amazing.
