This set is so beautiful (as you can tell about all Altenew flower sets) and versatile. I like that it has outline images, so only outlines can be stamped. You can create beautiful shading with color layering stamps and you can mix and match.
For the first card I wanted to make a row of tulips of different colors and types. It required a lot of masking, a lot! I ruined several pieces before finally got the one that I was happy with and that didn’t have so many flaws (like uneven or not precise stamping).
I used almost every Altenew ink I have, as I wanted to have a tulip rainbow. I finished off this card by adding a simple sentiment from the same set using Jet Black ink and adhering several clear droplets.
The idea for the second card was in my mind for a while. I wanted to make a design reminding those herbarium pictures ones that are so popular now. When flowers are laid down in different directions. I decided to go monochromatic with this card, and the color choice here is my favorite – deep blue one. For some tulips I only stamped the outline image and the tip layer, skipping the bottom one. That way they look like white tulips with blue veins (or whatever this thing is called).
I stamped all flowers on a white panel, added a sentiment, several sequins and gems.
And the third card is the simplest one. First I stamped several flowers on Kraft card base with Dark Chocolate ink using only outline images. Then I took those spoiled pieces I had left from the first card (I mentioned it above), cut them out with my scissors and adhered them to the card. Some I adhered flat using liquid adhesive, for some I used thick clear drops. And a simple sentiment finished off the card.
Here are three ways you can use this set. But there are much more possibilities with this set, it’s to die for!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
