Altenew Build-A-Flower: Belladonna Lily Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Happy April, my friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower Belladonna 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. 

What can I say, this month's Build-a-Flower Belladonna Lily is simply scrumptious!

I love the design of this set as they are easy to line up for stamping. This card's color combo is one that I do not use often enough in the past. I wonder why... because I am loving it!

The warm yellow with purple (and a touch of pink) are really beautiful together.

I stamped the solid petal stamp in pink and then built up the colors in shades of purple. The dies make this stamped image extra special since the bouquet is so delicate.

 I also stamped the edges in warm yellow and then highlighted the yellow more intensely  around the corners. To simulate the  splatter (without actually splattering), I used the smallest detailed stamp to create the splatter effect.

For embellishments, I had to add that Midas touch, of course--gold metallic thread and sequins. I hope you like this card that I designed.

I absolutely love how you stamped the florals in a pale yellow in the background and I’m crazy about the pinks and purples you’ve used.

Gorgeous coloring of that lovely flower. Must be Spring, I'm seeing so much purple. The extra stamping and spatter add so much to your focal point.

I have never seen purple highlighted with pink before. It looks like you are looking at the flowers at sunrise and the light is tinted. Very cool.
