After last month’s break, we’re back with a new Build-a-Flower and a giveaway blog hop! You should be arriving from Jaycee Gaspar’s blog. Isn’t his work just amazing? If, however, you’re starting from here, you can either track back to the Altenew Card Blog to start at the beginning, or continue around until you loop back here.

Introducing Columbine

This month’s Build-a-Flower is the gorgeous Columbine. It comes in a variety of colors, so be adventurous in your color selection! This is one of my favorite flowers – and it grows quite easily in the Midwest. This month, there is a special ink bundle option to help you get started with a lovely purple & yellow flower.

3 Colorways with the Same Inks

Though there are literally infinite color combinations you could create, I find the easiest way to create stunning results with the Build-a-Flower series is to use a set of coordinating ink cubes. In the case of the Columbine, I used two – Rose Petals for the outer petals, and Sugarplums for the center.

Color Variation

Of course, individual blooms are always a little different from each other – an extra dark streak, a little lighter than the rest – each is unique. So, why not stamp to reflect that too? Here’s three different ways to use the two ink sets to create different shades for color variation.
