Special Altenew Release- Build-A-Flower Camellia

Hi there everyone and happy Wednesday!

Why do I have a treat for you today? Altenew have just announced that they we be doing a special release on the 15th of every month! This special release with comprise of a layered stamp set and coordinating dies, the first one is Build-A-Flower Camellia and it is absolutely gorgeous!

I only used the final layers for the flower and leaves on this, so just think how much fun you can have with the whole kit and caboodle. I stamped the images in the lightest Distress Ink I owned and then coloured the images softly with watercolours.

I die-cut the panel so the flower was in the corner and added a sentiment from the same set.

To finish I popped the panel up on my card using foam tape and added a few clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit!

Please leave me a comment as I would really love to know what you think of my card!, to leave a comment just click on the post title and the comment box will appear.
