I love using the Crisp Dye Inks from Altenew; the Cherry Blossom and Green Fields ink bundles pair wonderfully with this flower. This Build-A-Flower: Camellia japonica & Ink Bundle (ALT) is at a special 5% discount!

Surprise! I made another card featuring this wonderful set. I did the same ink blending technique on the flowers, but only on the A1 layer using one ink cube. I paired the arrangement with a gold ombré background on watercolor paper.

  2. I just ordered the Enchanted Garden Mini Ink set. I love those colors! Now, I want to order this stamp set.and the other ink sets!! Your video was awesome. I love how you just cut around your images with a swivel knife. I would be too scared! 😮

  3. The colors are gorgeous, but the real difference was when you added the embossing powder on top, it just made the flowers come to life. The cards came out beautiful. Thanks for sharing your inspiration process.

  6. EGADS!!!! I’ve never seen anyone use a swivel knife to fussy cut and my mind is blown! I hate fussy cutting with scissors, so i must find a swivel knife to buy and try this technique. Loooove the gradient of colour from blue to pink!
