Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Dendrobium Orchid Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Hello friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower Dendrobium Orchid with a blog hop!

If you arrive from the blog of Sandhya Iyer, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. For all the inspiration and info, please visit Altenew Card Blog.

For my design, I used my pre-ink-sprayed color paper. This can be done ahead of time. I used a mixture of Spray Mist (Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee Metallic Spray

Altenew-CAF Dendrobium Orchid-Cheerful Bloom 3D Embossing Folder-Essential Sentiment Strips Die-Glided Glitter Card stock-001

Not only that this is rather easy to do, the colors from the spray have such an organic feel. 
You will not get the same effect as the inked ones!

This set of dies is all about creating clusters. I grouped them and made it an ensemble. As for the sentiment, I did some really intricate Inlaid Diecutting with Essential Sentiment Die. A little bit of Gilded Glitter Card-stock goes a long way!

To compliment the flowers, I dry-embossed the white card stock. The subtle textures are just perfect with these organic and colorful flowers. The embossing folder is Cheerful Bloom.
