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

Happy August, friends!
It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.

If you come by the blog of Therese Calvird, you are in the right place.
If not, please come and join the fun hop!

Introducing Bellflower! HERE are some interesting fact about Bellflower.

I love the shapes and sizes (this set comes with 3!) in this set.
I decided to create a frame with the flowers!
My color combo is based on this Stamp and Die Bundle.
Altenew-buildaflower-Belloflower-Virginia#1

I usually start stamping with the focal point first and then stamped around the main images.
 In this case, the darkest purple Bellflowers are the main image with all layers of stamping.

You may not see it right away, but I did use the largest Bellflower Die (included in this set) to dry-emboss the image. You easily do this with your flower matching die and stamp. You do need a tan embossing mat for this purpose. Almost all die cut machines have a shim/tan embossing mat that comes wit the machine.

I love the BAF layering images and find myself reaching for them more and more for background stamping. The color I used are all the shade of purple, lilac and hot pink (inks are listed below).
