Craft-a-Flower: Peruvian Lily Release

Like any of the build-a-flower/craft-a-flower/paint-a-flower releases from Altenew, I spend quite a bit of time looking at images on Google on the actual flower. Fortunately my local grocery store also carries this flower in a bouquet year-round. What I noticed about the Peruvian Lily (Alstroemeria) was its velvet petals and wonderful color variation in each petal.

Aside from the leaves, I did not use any colored cardstock for the layering images. I started with several panels of white cardstock and dry-layered (no glue) the die cut images to see how they fit together. Once I studied where I could apply color to the white pieces of cardstock, I colored each layer with dye ink and my mini ink blending tool. If I felt like I needed more color in specific areas, I used the detail blending brushes to apply ink. Some of these areas were the tips of the petals or the anthers.

Then finally, I glued all the layers of the flower together. As for the leaves, I had two tones of ‘black’ cardstock. I die cut those layers and neatly arranged them behind the flowers. I finished this card with metallic splatters from the 14 Metallic Watercolor Pan Set and a sentiment from Build-a-Flower: Hellebore.

  1. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, black leaves – I never could have imagined it would look this good! You ALWAYS inspire me!!!


  2. Love your design. Your black leaves really pop against the white background. Another gorgeous card by Jaycee!


  3. I love the abstract black leaves as opposed to the typical green one. I love how you dared to go outside the box on the leaves! The flowers are just beautiful and well blended. A very soft look, overall and the same look could be carried inside the card as well!


  4. Hi Jaycee – I love your card you amazed me using black for the leaves but it looks wonderful and the coloring and silver specks finishes it off, Great Job Jaycee and Thanks for sharing I always love to see your creations, you inspire me so much.
