Build-A-Flower: Camellia Japonica
http://shrsl.com/1oe8u
 If you come by the blog of Svitlana Shayevich, you are in the right place. If not, come join the fun and inspiration.

This set is absolutely smashing! I love the deep ridges and grooves of the layering.
I truly experience the JOY of stamping when I see the images coming to life! 
Altenew-BAF Camellia Japonica-Virginia#3

I started out with stamping the background with the 3rd layering image.
The details are amazing. I then stamped the flowers in blue and leaves in grey!

Altenew-BAF Camellia Japonica-Virginia#2

For once, I thought it might look nice without green leaves!
To highlight the grey, I used Essential Rock Paper Pack for the large strips and die cut the leaves.

 I also stamped the last layer of blue and added Crystal Clear Embossing Powder as my final layer.
I love how prominent and sharp that blue is!

As the sentiment says, I hope your day is delightful!!

Blue and grey is always a great color combo. I love how you showcase the flower in a bright blue and the leaves in a subtler tone. Makes it pop!
