Welcome to the Altenew Build-A-Flower: COLUMBINE Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. You are arriving from Therese's blog - a list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience -
Today, Altenew is celebrating the release of their new Build-a-Flower set: COLUMBINE. I gotta admit that i had seen the flower before, but i had to go to the internet to see if it matched what i remember, and totally felt in love with the wildflower feel of the flower. And as it is with all Altenew products, the BAF set easily can recreate a very realistic match to the original flower.
Every time, i see a new stamp, i think of all the possibilities of the stamp in memory keeping before cardmaking ( it is the journaler in me!). After seeing how they grow in the wild, i decided to stamp my hearts content of them to create a page all about my daughter.
I chose to stay with a single color family for each of the flowers, and wanted very Spring happy colors. For this, i used Spring Bouquet, Shades of Purple, Red Cosmos, Tropical Forest, and Summer Afternoon MIni Ink Cubes to stamp all the flowers and leaves. Having a stamping platform helped to speed up the process, and then just took my time die cutting all the images.
I wanted the flowers to stand out, so i chose a green cardstock for the background, and applied Embossing paste using a stencil brush through the Feeling Dotty stencil.
Once, the paste dried, i started to build the large floral cluster on the right side of the layout. A bit of foam adhesive helps to add movement and dimension to the flowers. I then simply added the picture of my daughter and used the Mega Brush Alpha stamp set to create the title of the page.
I love how the BAF: COLUMBINE flowers frame the picture very softly, and then all the color just makes the images pop from the page. You are going to love this stamp set!
