Altenew Build-A-Flower: Triumph Tulip Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video

Happy 2020 Friends!!!




We are starting the new year with a NEW member in the Build-A-Flower family. Introducing.....BAF: Triumph Tulip !!!  I'm pleased to be part of the Blog hop hosted by the Altenew Card blog and Scrapbook Blog. The full blog hop list is at teh end of this post.


Layering Guide


Build-A-Flower: Triumph Tulip & Ink Bundle(5% discount)
This is a fabulously versatile set featuring two multi stamp tulip blooms and 3 leaves with some of the best filler images to up your creative game!! Layering these tulips is easy with the guide found in the set.
I have created three cards for today using the Build-A-Flower : Triumph Tulip.
Take a closer look:)
 For this first card I used the tiny branch images to create a wreath background for the layered Triumph Tulips that are die cut and paired with more die cut elements from the set.

Supplies used:
Crisp inks: Frosty Pink, Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Aqualicious, Mountain Mist
 *******

I'll let you in on a secret. 
We are expecting our second grand baby any day now..and the surprise of the baby's gender will not be revealed until he/she arrives. Yes, our family is old fashioned that way.
So in light of that happiness I wanted to have a Blue card on hand, as well as the pink card above, ready for the big day!

To achieve these blue Triumph Tulips, I mixed Aqualicious, Tide Blue, Mountain Mist, and Volcanic Lake on the different layers. The leaves are inked with Morning Frost and Evening Gray. And the tiny sprigs are inked with Frosty Pink and details added with the R302 Artist Marker.
The String Art Rectangles Die Set provided a straight line of holes for stitchng the bakers twine trough.
*******
For this last one I did some No-line coloring using the Artist Markers and 0 Colorless Blender. I have a video capture of my coloring process.
Artist Marker Colors used:
0 Colorless Blender
S Black
C001, Y205, Y204, Y212
G702, G554, G804, G825, G935

Sea Breeze Crisp Ink

  38. My niece is expecting this June - she isn't old-fashioned and we'll know for sure on Jan 11. But, the heartbeat is fast, so we think it'll be a girl to join a sister and brother. Both cards are lovely.
