Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Sunburst Azalea Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 Hello All, 

Am SO excited and happy to be part of Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Sunburst Azalea Release Blog Hop .

I feel so honoured and humbled by this Awesome opportunity.

You should have arrived from Awesome, Rosie's blog. Else if you are starting from here, I have a full blog hop list at the end of my post.

Made a floral card using this new, Layering Die Set Sunburst Azalea .

Over to my card,

  • Kept the card super simple. Firstly die cut the floral layers from lighter shade to darker shade of cardstocks and arranged as shown using liquid adhesive.
  • Diecut the leaves from a lighter green shade cardstock and ink blended it slightly to get an ombre shade.
  • Then generously splashed white acrylic paint on the florals and leaves and kept for air drying / sped up with heat tool.

  • Took a gray panel little shorter than A2 size and foam mounted the floral and leaves as shown.
  • Tied black beaded ivory shaded twine around the panel and foam mounted this on A2 sized ivory cardbase. 
  • Sentiment is stamped using Altenew Jet black ink from BAF - Giant Bellflower stamp set and die cut it using Featured sentiment die set. 
  • Then the banner is foam mounted onto the twine. Few clear dew drops are added as accents.
And now for the exciting part!! Giveaway!!
