Welcome to the hop! We’re playing with Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fuchsia today. If you made your way here from Svitlana Shayevich’s blog, you’re right on track! To start at the beginning, head to the Altenew Card Blog.
I enjoy floral images that hang from stems and branches like this lovely fuchsia. It’s a nice change from traditional stems that grow from the ground and fun to arrange the blooms.
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fuchsia is available as a stamp & die bundle or stamp, die, and ink bundle.
YouTube Tutorial | Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fuchsia 3 Ways
This video shares how to use Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fuchsia in three different ways. As a bonus, I share how to create 3 different backgrounds with Altenew Artist Markers.
Fuchsia 3 Ways
You can achieve many looks with Build-A-Flower: Fuchsia as it includes the outline and layering images. Today, I’ll share three ways.
Simple Black Outline Fuchsias
After referring to an inspiration photo, I created an Artist Marker background panel to suggest the blurry leaves in the background of the photo.
To create the background, scribble Sea Shore Altenew Artist Markers on Yupo paper and spray with alcohol. Allow the alcohol to sit a few seconds so the inks have a chance to move. Next, heat set the ink with a heat tool from about 12 inches away to avoid warping.
The background panel is busy, so I opted for simple black and white fuchsias.
Layer Stamp & Artist Marker Fuchsias
Again, I created the background panel first. I made one stripe with Altenew Blush Artist Marker and surrounded that stripe with Sea Shore stripes.
My plan was to arrange pink & grey fuchsias down the pink stripe to create the illusion more flowers were in the out of focus background. I should have made the pink stripe wider for a better effect.
The die-cut letters are from Tall Alphabet Dies and you is from the Adore You Stamp Set.
Fuchsias or Party Lights?
This card design is definitely way outside the box, so if it’s not your jam, that’s totally ok! I love the tops of the fuchsia flowers and I kept seeing them as fairy lights or party lights.
I intended to create pink lights by stamping the tops and drawing the rest of the lights, but things didn’t go as expected.
Before scribbling Artist Markers, I masked an area with a cicular die-cut to preserve some white space. If you’re using colored paper to mask, be cautious about how much alcohol you spray. You don’t want the colored mask to bleed. Watch the video for the drawing & coloring details!
I used Altenew Permanent Black in for the sentiments. Be sure to let it dry overnight.
