Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, friends!
It's time to share another exciting Altenew Craft-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower with a blog hop!
If you arrive from the blog of Lilith Eeckels, you are in the right place!
For all the info and details, you can find the inspiration over Altenew Card Blog.
Altenew-CAF Anemone-Fragile Foliage Stamp Set-001

I know I can easily use Altenew's Gradient card stock to create gorgeous anemones. However, I decided to create my own blend of card stock (purple, coral/red and green). All inks are listed below. For the convenience, I did use Gel Plate (listed below) to ink up the paper. You can color-blend with an ink-blender and that works great also.

By following the guide,  assembling all the pieces was fast and very straightforward.
These two stunning anemones are easy to line up.

To make the vibrant colors of the anemones pop, I inked up the center in yellow.
I love the sentiment from Fragile Foliage  (gorgeous stamps and font).

This card must be one of the brightest color combo that I used. BUT I kind of like it!
