Today being the 15th of the month, Altenew have released their third Build A Flower set. This month it is the turn of the gorgeous Build A Flower Magnolia – a 6 x 8 set with coordinating dies. This is only available as a set, not individual product. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
There is an outline image in the Build A Flower Magnolia set and a bunch of stamp layering images too. However, you know me; give me a nice outline image to colour and I’m happy! I thought the colours of the Magnolia flower would work well pencil coloured on a neutral base.
I stamped the Magnolia outline with clear embossing ink on Toned Grey paper. This gave me an outline to colour and I chose my Prismacolor pencils for this one as they are soft and easy to blend. I kept them sharp though with my favourite sharpener so that I could still get some definition in to the colouring.
I kept the rest of the card super simple. I stamped a sentiment from the Build A Flower Magnolia set in clear embossing ink on Slate card and white heat embossed. I added a hot pink mat of card peeking out from below the sentiment strip and foam mounted this to the panel. I tied some hot pink twine around the top and then foam mounted to a white card base. As a finishing touch I added sequins and glossy eggshell pearls.
