Altenew Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway
Hi crafty friends!
You may have found yourself here from the very talented Virginia Lu
Apparently, the African Daisy is a fairly infrequently used annual that is a tough plant, native to South Africa and has beautiful silvery gray foliage. Apparently, they hail sand and rocky areas in South Africa and need well drained soil to perform their best.
$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop by 04/13/2022 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 04/15/2022.
So, as creativity is being able to work within one's own ideas, I decided to create a daisy incorporating the Summer Afternoon & Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock Sets. I added these to my pics so you could see them easily. It's not so obvious, but I actually used a sponge dauber to add some dye ink to the cardstock pieces before joining them together. This is a good tip if you want to also add some depth of colour and/or dimension to die cuts. I use the Scalloped Frame 3D Embossing folder and fussy cut it out. This is the backdrop for my African Daisy. Despite what I wrote earlier about silvery gray foliage, my design has bright green foliage. To finish I added a tag with a sentiment and some gold braid, also adding to the dimension.
Below shows you the layering process which is always on the description card for you and its really helpful.
