Altenew Build-A-FLower Magnolia. Card by @craftwalks

Hello there!

Today is 15th and that means that there is new Altenew Build-A-Flower product released. This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Magnolia. It’ll be only available as a bundle, stamp and die sets won’t be sold separately.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Magnolia

Altenew is celebrating this mini release sharing inspiration from design team and also by giving away certificates to Altenew store.

Do you like magnolias? I cannot say that I’m a flower person. Which you won’t tell looking at my cards lol. Well, I mentioned this bizarre fact many times. Not being a big lover of real flowers when it comes to cardmaking – flowers are my favorite to work with.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I hate flowers in real life. I do enjoy looking at them and smelling them :) But I don’t have butterflies in my stomach when I see them. Like I do seeing a cat or dog … or squirrel … or bird … or any animal really.

But magnolias are those rare flowers that make my heart flutter. They look magical to me. And so beautiful. I do like them as well of an art form. So for my card I decided to went with an art gallery kind of design.

To start off I inked an Solar White panel using Silver Stone and Industrial Diamond inks.

Then I stamp the magnolia branch using Jet Black ink, following by stamping all layers using Ocean Waves, Desert NightDusk, Evergreen, Forest Glades and Dark Chocolate inks.

After that I colored it using Artist Markers. Which covered my stamping completely, but I referred to stamped layers while was deciding where to put shades.

To add a bit of deepness to colors I covered the branch with Clear Wink Of Stella.

I then added some droplets of Industrial Diamond and Pure Graphite inks with small brush as well as drew some with white gel pen.

I then cut my panel creating three kind of art pieces and foam mounted them onto a white card base.

Finally I added a sentiment stamped with Industrial Diamond ink. This time I opted to stay away of any embellishments, like sequins or something. Since I had enough dots on my card :) Besides sequins didn’t go with the whole idea of wall art gallery.

This is such an amazing stamp set. I see me using it a lot in future :)
