Introducing Torch Ginger

This month’s Build-a-Flower is a really cool cone shaped bloom. It’s also known as the Torch Lily, and is related to the spice, ginger. They’re in the same scientific family (Zingiberaceae). Of course, the stamp set has a coordinating die set for both the flower and the leaf. And, we have a bundle with ink too!

Big & Bold

These big blooms were just screaming for something bold. I decided to create a cool black background on Parchment cardstock (yes, adding a watercolor wash to that particular cardstock actually works well). Then, I was able to use the Antique Gold ink pad to add some leaves in the background. And I heat embossed the sentiment in gold too.

The Torch Gingers were created with the Rose Petal ink cube set, and I used the Green Valley cube set for the leaves. I added some gold embossing to the flowers and leaves to pull the gold all the way through the design.
