Altenew Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Release + Giveaway


As far as you know Altenew launched new Build-A-Flower release on the 15th of every month. So each month new flower bundle will be released. The stamp set and die set won't be available for purchase individually - it's only available as a set. All of us looove Altenew's flowers stamps so what can be more cool then a new flower stamp?
Today is time for gorgeous spring flower - magnolia! This flower is so elegant, beautiful and unique. This spring I discovered that it can be even yellow (usually I saw pink ones).
Here some of my internet finds for your "magnolia inspiration":

 Look at this outline image! It's so good itself that I made both cards without layered stamping but colored in two different ways.
The first one is an example of how to make great coloring without having color pencils or paints) I used regular black/graphite pencil to color outline image stamped with a Permanent Black ink. I really liked the idea of b&w style. But in order to highlight it's beauty I needed different background. So I found Parchment Cardstock would be a perfect one.

Using white pigment ink and Tiny Bubbles Stencil I made bokeh-effect on that background. Taking into account our this year's spring with snow it also can be considered as a snowfall imitation.
I wanted to highlight magnolia's brunch even more so I used solid stamp layers to make a shadow.  First I found the place for my die cut image and then stamped with Evening Gray Crisp Dye Ink with a displacement.
I'm so in love with how it turned out so think that this card will became on of my favorites!
The second card is more usual I'd say. This time I made no-line coloring with Altenew Markers and added some details with watercolor pencils.
I placed my magnolia in a tea cup from Vintage Teacup stamp set that I colored with watercolor pencils only.
For the card base I used Forest Glades and Woodgrain Powder cardstock.

  12. Ну что ж, попытка номер 2. А суть ее в том, что крафт явно тебя любит. А иначе как объяснить тот факт, что у тебя с ним получается просто бомбезные открытки))))


Glad you are with me!
