Altenew Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Release Blog Hop + Giveaway (CLOSED)

Hello and welcome to Altenew Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Release Blog Hop! We’re celebrating the Build-A-Flower of February – Japanese Mum.

You probably came from Emily Midgett. If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at Altenew blog and see what other members of Altenew design team and guest designers have created. There are so many beautiful projects from talented designers. Also you on each stop you you have a chance to win a prize.

I made a one layer card using the new set.

Altenew Bukd-A-Flower Japanese Mum. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

I stamped the flowers onto a white card base using yellow inks and leaves using teal inks. To mask off the overlapping elements I used masks which I die-cut out of a masking paper using the matching dies. You can see the white borders around the elements – they happened because die-cuts are bigger than corresponding stamped images. So the masks were bigger too. I took this approach with die-cutting masks not only to make my life easier (as I didn’t have to fussy cut them).

After I stamped the flowers and leaves I taped the card base edges with a painters tape, leaving the flowers still masked, and blended Teal Cave Dye Ink onto the unmasked area.

I was using an inch wide tape and taped that inch from each edge. Which left such little unmasked space in the middle. Which I ended up not liking. So I decided to increase that inked rectangle, this time taping down just 1/2″ inch from each side. That time I got the result I was going for. I wanted to have flowers onto an inked rectangle hanging out its edges a bit.

You can see my previous smaller rectangle edges still visible. I wasn’t able to cover them completely. But I actually like the result. I think I want to repeat it one day with maybe even more layers of inking. I also added some splatters of the Lagoon Ink Spray before removing all masks and tape.

So to finish off the card I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added several clear droplets as well as liquid drops.

    Gorgeous mums. I always think of mums in a yellow gold as you think of them in the late summer early fall. The teal and yellow colors are perfect together. Always enjoy your commentary as to why you do what you do on your cards.
