Altenew-DottedBloomsStampsDie-Virginia#4
 
To show off the delicate branch and flowers, I opted for the Partial Die-cutting.
The  sentiment was embossed in Rose Gold.

 I paired it up with the Peach Gold Washi Tape. The flowers were stamped in Jet Black and colored with Artist Brush Markers

 2. feature product: Beautiful Peony Stamp, Mask  & Die


Altenew-BeautifulPeonyStampStencil-Virginia#2

This one layer has colors, textures and details thanks to the beautiful peonies!
The peonies colors were ink-blended thanks to the use of Negative Mask! 
Altenew-BeautifulPeonyStampStencil-Virginia#3

I didn't want to leave the background all in white, so I took out Beveled Squares Stencil and applied some gray from the Gentleman's Gray

Altenew-BeautifulPeonyStampStencil-Virginia#3-001

3. feature product: Botanical Silhouette Stamp
Altenew-BotanicalSilhouetteStamp-Virginia#1
I stamped the floral silhouette in  Citrus Burst and Pink Pearl.
The focal point was embossed in Rose Gold 2-3 times.  

Altenew-BotanicalSilhouetteStamp-Virginia#2
For the embellishments, the butterfly and chip board from Scrapbook Embellishment Bundle (20% off) compliments the design fabulously!

Altenew-BotanicalSilhouetteStamp-Virginia#3

4. feature product: Exotic Tulips Stamps/Die/Stencil


Altenew-ExoticTulips-Virginia#1
What can I say about this tulips? Indeed, they are very exotic! These images remind me of the paintings from Amsterdam's Rijkmuseum that I visited two years ago.  I drew my inspiration from the painting and came up with a more vintage look.

Altenew-ExoticTulipStamp-Virginia#3
You may see the very subtle stamped  text background.
I also added some embossing paste with Feeling Dotty Stencil.

Altenew-ExoticTulips-Virginia#2
As you can tell, I had an absolute blast creating with these amazing products.
 I hope that you love what I created for this release!
