Altenew Build-A-Flower: Poppy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy December, my friends!
December holds a very special month in my heart...( because I am a December baby). 😊

s
Well, it's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower release with you.
If you come from the fabulous Laurie Willison's blog, you are in the right place!
For all the details about this release, please visit Altenew Card Blog.

When I received this stamp set/die, I had a bit of hard time thinking of the ways in stamping the images in the best possible way...In the end, I decided to using the Orange Cream from Altenew November Ink Spray Bundle and mixed the colors with Ruby Red.
 
Altenew-Build-a-Flower-Poppy-Virginia#1

With that beautiful ink-sprayed colored paper, I was able to stamp the Poppy Flower in two layers (omitting the first solid layer).
Altenew-Build-a-Flower-Poppy-Virginia#2

I then created a a very subtle background with the new Floral Mandala Stencil.
Altenew-Build-a-Flower-Poppy-Virginia#3

Of course, the matching die cut makes it super easy to assemble the entire card. I took out the nozzle of Lagoon Metallic Spray and carefully added the splatter!

I have another completely different version with the Poppy Build-A-Flower.
Please do come back as I will share it in a few days!
