Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily 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 Peruvian Lily with a blog hop!


If you arrive from the blog of Bridget Casey, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. You find all the info at Altenew Card Blog.

 
This set of dies are absolutely stunning. In order to live up to the beauty of the Peruvian Lily, I  took an organic approach by inking up each piece of petals with various DIY paper.

I visualized the lilies that I want to create and ink-blended my assorted color paper. The colors ranged from light yellow, soft pink, grassy green...dark orange, forest green and deep red.

  I then die cut each piece accordingly and assembled each petals by following the guide. It was such a therapeutic and creative process that I love love every minute of seeing my own Peruvian Lilies coming to life! You know it when you are loving the creative process...  I was "in the zone"! ๐Ÿ˜‡
 
(In case you are wondering what "in the zone" really means..) 
In the zone: In a mental state of focused concentration on the performance of an activity, in which one dissociates oneself from distracting or irrelevant aspects of one's environment.!

To showcase these gorgeous lilies, I created a simple frame with Simple Frame Mask Stencil.
To add some interest,  I sprinkled Frosty Pink Ink Spray

 I stamped "hi" with "Tall Lowercase Alpha Stamp Set". Isn't it lovely?

Absolutely gorgeous! Your ink blended card stock is perfect. I have bought so, so many bouquets of this flower over the years as we used them in college biology labs to teach floral anatomy. All the leftover flowers would go to our dept secretary and my office so we could enjoy them. I think over the years I saw about every color that there is available for Peruvian Lilies!
