Hello and welcome to our second Build-A-Flower release!

As you all know by now that Altenew will be releasing a flower stamp plus die combo every month on the 15th. This will be available as a combo only and not separately.
Here is what I came up with.
For my first card, I did a bit of masking and stamped the flower and leaves to build a border.
I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed it in white.
The cardstock I used is close to Sea Glass and is one from the New Day Card Kit.
I used Artist Markers Set A to colour my flowers and leaves.
Started off with Sea Glass and then to add more depth I coloured in with Dusk Artist Marker.
I then went back in with Spica glitter pen to add tons of sparkle.
I don't know if you can see it, but here is a closeup.
On to my second card which again is fairly simple.
I heat embossed the flowers and leaves in white again on watercolour paper.
I watercoloured the leaves and flowers very loosely.
After the images were dry I diecut them and placed them on a watercoloured panel.
I stuck all images on different levels using foam tape.
Stamped the sentiment on a plain white strip and popped it over the cluster.
For my final card I went for a more grungy, loose watercolour look.
I did a bit of masking and stamped my flower on the front panel, heat embossed it in gold.
I added a lot of water to the entire front panel and began dropping different shades of blue watercolour focusing mainly on the flowers but not really worrying if the colour dropped outside the lines too.
I love the sentiments on this stamp set and I wanted to highlight them, so I picked out one and heat embossed it in gold on black cardstock. I added a thin strip of Gold Glitter Tape to one border.
Added some gold string and popped my sentiment tab over it using foam tape.
I also added some gold splatters to my front panel.
So there you go!
Three different looks using one stamp set.
