Hi there! Happy February 1st! It always feels like January is the longest month ever, right? And then all of a sudden, it’s February and it’s like how are we already two months into the year? Today Altenew is releasing their newest installment in the Build A Flower series: Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose! We’re celebrating with a blog hop, of course; you should have arrived here from Justine and your next stop is Kelly! (You can also start back at the beginning at the Altenew Card Blog to get the full hop list!) I color flowers all the time, because I want to put a flower on everything, so I thought I’d switch things up from the typical green leaves to something a little different: deep raspberry pink! Let’s get started with the details.
I started by stamping the outlines of the flowers and foliage from Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose using Copic-friendly black ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then used my Copic markers to color the images in shades of bright coral and deep, jewel-toned raspberry pink. I love trying something different every now and then!
After I had finished coloring the images, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the colored images. I arranged them on a bright white card base in a cascade of flowers, trimming some of the overhanging edges off and using them to help fill in some of the some of the bare spots. I adhered some of the die cuts with foam adhesive and some with liquid adhesive to create lots of dimension.
I added a greeting from Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose using Obsidian ink directly onto the card base, then added some gems for some shine!
Now, as always, Altenew has some great giveaways to celebrate their new Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose release!
