Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Have you checked out the current January 2020 Inspiration Challenge? The color combo is really out of my norm as I don’t use purple enough. Altenew Inks are the best when it comes to adding depths to your stamped design. Today’s card is loosely based on the current January Inspiration Challenge colors.
I love using our Build-A-Flower sets with various color combinations. This latest Triumph Tulip set is perfect for this challenge. I used more red in this project, however, you can use orange as the challenge logo suggested.
For the Triumph Tulip, I used Crimson as my darkest shade and gradually added the depth with each color-layering.
To build up the layers of colors, start with the background (add a tint of color), stamp image with various shades. Masking is also is a great way to create depth. To add dimensions, pop up a few pieces on top of the stamped images. You now have many layers of colors without adding lots of bulk!
I love the small leaves and branches that come with the Triumph Tulip set. To add the dimensions, I popped up the small floral branch (stamped in Grape Agate).
I hope that you love this deep and rich color combo. The wonders of nature never cease to amaze me. I hope that you will take on this challenge and create something rich and colorful. Thank you for stopping by!
