Elegance with simple colours - Altenew Cartoon Tulips

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team.

White flowers with white card - create dimension!

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. At times it can be hard to colour a realistic white looking flower - well for me it is and I don't have the patient to sit there colouring them in. However, you can easily use layers of white cardstock instead. So my tip for white flowers with white card - just add dimension!  Popping the layers up on foam, allows the layers to create showers, and these shadows give the flower depth and dimension. This is such a quick way to make a realistic white flower in...
