Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus Release + Giveaway

Hello friends!
It's that exciting time of the month...Altenew's  
Build-a-Flower is here!
This time, it is the gorgeous ranunculus! 


You can find this new stamp/die combo here.
All Build-a-Flower collections can be found here.

If you Google the images of ranunculus, you will see a lot of images here 

For this awesome stamp and die combo, I felt like using lots of layers.

I did partial die-cutting for the ranunculus and fit the entire image onto the Cherry Wood Paper. The Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder work seamlessly with and layering stamps.

 I also added a strip of Gold Glitter Tape from the New Day Card Kit

For my 2nd card, I came up with another color combo. With Altenew Ink, you can easily color-layering the flowers simply follow the guide from the package. Since the flower is large, the lining-up part was so easy! Sometimes I stick with the same color family, sometimes I love mixing them up. The color-layering is easily the BEST part in creating!

I created a subtle blue background with a touch of ink and water.


This time I focus more on stamping. The Halftone Stencil is really handy to have for adding details. 
What can I say? The Altenew layered stamps are absolutely top-notch and this set is no exception.
