Craft-a-Flower: Antique Rose and Gradient Cardstock Bundle

There are many layers to this project–literally. Let’s start with the star of the show, the Antique Rose Flowers. I was inspired by vintage wallpaper color palettes and jewel tones. I first made a large gradient of Mango Smoothie to Winter Fog. These are the watercolor brush makers included in the Autumn Festival Watercolor Brush Marker Set. I used the Double-Sided Adhesive Sheets for easy adhesion after die-cutting.

Moving on to the leaves I made another watercolor gradient. This time I used Sea Forest and Jet Black for a deep sage feel. I love the way the foliage layers and I can see this set pairing perfectly with other layering floral dies from Altenew.

Then finally I made a smaller quick gradient to finish the Hare’s Tail Grass embellishment. I used a more purple shift of Ultraviolet and Cotton Candy. Then I added some flocking foil to the open spaces. I got the foil as a sample from a local crafting store a few years ago. After arranging the flowers, I glued them on top of a panel of Spicy Yogurt Cardstock with my favorite Jet Black Ink Spray splatters.

  1. I Love the unusual colours of your roses! It makes the card have a masculine touch! I LOVE that Altenew always gets its flowers botanically correct! God Bless & the Love of Christ to you all!!


  2. I love how you used the watercolor brush markers to color the different layers…it creates so much more interest and more realistic effect. Stunning!


  3. Oh, yes. I always enjoy your work and color choices. The burgundy is outstanding with the subaltern greys. Very nice!


  4. Pretty! I would never have thought to use the colors you did for the rose die but it looks wonderful! Thank you for the inspiration! 🙂
