Altenew 'Build-A-Flower: Rose' by Jen Kray

Altenew Build-A-Flower Card distress ink Distress Oxides Jen Kray Rose

Well hello there! This week I'm sharing a project using the beautiful
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose, stamp and die set you can get here.
I am in love with this set and it was relatively easy to work out due to the
helpful how to on the pack of the stamp packaging. 
It took me awhile to work out what colours to use but I went with the
Distress Ink- Squeezed Lemonade
Memento - Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Tangelo, Morocco, Rhubarb Stark
Nuvo - Lime Burst
Altenew - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Memento - Olive Grove
Distress Oxide - Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn
Nuvo - Black Shadow Hybrid 
I started off stamping out the rose and this did take about 3 times
before I knew where the lines were. If you're not familiar with layering
stamps you really have to stick with it - once you get a feel of the
stamps it's quick and easy. 

I then repeated the layering process on the leaves using Nuvo - Lime Burst, Altenew - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Memento - Olive Grove. 
Die cut your flowers and leaves, set aside. 
Cut a panel of watercolour card 5.25 inches x 4 inches and knock
some Distress Oxides on your craft mat, spray lightly with water and
smoosh your card into the ink. 

Cut a piece of white cardstock 1 inch by 5.25 inches and using your
black ink, stamp your sentiment centrally on your small panel
Cut a sliver of handmade paper by Tonic Studios (or any paper) x 5.25
inches long. Adhere the sentiment to the bottom of your smooshed
watercolour panel and then add the additional sliver of paper to balance
your card. 
Assemble your leaves and roses to the front panel and then adhere to
an A2 card base. 

Isn't this just a gorgeous stamp! I don't use yellow very often but I wanted
to celebrate friendship this week and think it turned out really well. This is 
a big thank you to all my friends, old and new - who are awesome! I love 
ya ladies! 

Lots of Love and hugs
Jen xx
