Dimensional One-Layer Build-A-Flower: Primrose
Use Altenew Build-A-Flower: Primrose for more than layer stamping. Here, I used the outline images to create a simple one-layer card.
After masking a quick border with Post-It tape, I stamped three Build-A-Flower: Primrose blooms. Coordinating dies come with all Build-A-Flower sets. I used the dies to cut three primrose mask.
Once the masks were in place, I ink blended Caribbean Sky Crisp Dye Ink over Watercolor Stripes Stencil. Rather than using Neenah Classic Crest, I opted for Savoy 100% Cotton Letterpress paper.
This paper ink blends beautifully creating a soft airbrushed look. In addition, since it’s 100% cotton it holds water well too. This makes it great for ink smooching and light watercolor projects.
Now for that dimension, I talked about! I added a drop shadow with a regular pencil and tortillon (paper stump). Add a thin line of graphite and then blend lightly with the tortillon.
Shading under the blue stripes and around the primroses pops them up while recessing the white stripes.
Apothecary Label & Build-A-Flower: Primrose
Apothecary Label Stamp Set is a great set for a bit of simple masking. I started by stamping one of the label images with Pink Diamond Crisp Dye Ink.
Next, I masked the image and stamped several Build-A-Flower: Primrose blooms around the label with Obsidian Pigment Ink. Two to three flower masks are enough to get the job done.
Lastly, I shaded all around the Apothecary Label to bring the label forward and recess the primroses. And that’s a wrap, it’s as simple as that! Let me know what you think. Supplies, the next stop, and prize information are below. Thanks for stopping by!
