altenew hibiscus

A new Build A Flower stamp set has just been released by Altenew! It’s the Build-A-Flower: Hibiscus and it’s so pretty!

I am sharing a card to inspire you but make sure to visit the Altenew blog for even more inspiration.

This is a layering stamp set which means that you can easily get the depth on your flower by using inks pads. No coloring at all! And just because I had so much fun playing with my inks I just had to try out different color combinations.

A lovely colorful card perfect for any occasion depending on the sentiment you will add.
