Build-a-Flower: Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose Release
For my Build-a-Flower: Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose project, I started at Google. I usually look up the ‘real’ color palette of the flowers as a place to start before crafting. I was captivated by the contrasting petal colors in magenta and yellow. I knew for my card project I would replicate the real petal colors.
I also drew inspiration from a YouTube channel featuring plant time lapses. There were videos of cactus flowers blooming and I was compelled to replicate the movement in my card project. The blooms were against a dark background and immediately showcased the dramatic colors of the cactus flowers.
I hope to have a video soon over on my Perfect Pairings with Jaycee series on the Altenew YouTube channel showing how I get these blended layers to imitate no-outline coloring. I used a stamp positioning tool and an ink blending tool to get blended layers as if this image was watercolored, but it was done with a multitude of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.
