Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Antique Rose Layering Die Set 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 Craft-A-Flower Antique Rose with a blog hop!


If you arrive from the blog of Verity Biddelcombe, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 
 
Now...let's take in all those LAYERS! What do you think? 
Altenew-CAF Antique Rose-Garden Trellis Cover Die-Simple Greetings Die Set
 
The guide on the package was very easy and clear to follow. Each petal has its distinctive shape that you will not get mixed up easily.

TIPS on creating your own color paper: 
For my rose petals, I created my own custom blend colors. It is the quick and easy way. I applied 4 shades of Altenew ink to Gel Plate and let the ink dry. I then selectively die cut the colors accordingly.
If you do not own a Gel Plate , you can simple do the "Direct Ink to Paper" approach.  Ink-blending is another great option, too! If you love watercoloring, you can paint your own color paper, too! Last but not least, Altenew Gradient Card Stock is another good option, too!

To compliment the roses, I used part of the Garden Trellis to ground the images. Currently this cover die is sold out over Altenew. Here is another option if you like to get this cover die.

Your work never ceases to amaze me. :) I absolutely love the colors you chose to do your roses in! They remind me of roses my husband's mother grew in her yard years ago. I also love the way you used the trellis pattern at the bottom of your card. Wonderful job, Virginia!
