To celebrate this release we are having a giveaway along with tons of inspiration from my crafty friends. Keep reading for more details on the giveaway and links to all the beautiful paper projects.
But first, let's get started with today's project.
To start my project, I typically start with a Google Image search just to get some color schemes circulating. Narcissus comes in beautiful cultivars with peachy pink colors that immediately caught my attention.
The petals, stem, and leaves are all cut from white cardstock. The layering guide easily shows how to layer the cardstock pieces. The pistil/stamen layer was cut from a scrap of yellow cardstock and the ‘trumpet' was cut from pink cardstock.
In order to give the illusion of multiple layers of colored cardstock, I used the Golden Sunset family of crisp inks. I used the Detailed Ink Blending Brushes bundle to paint in details into the corona and petals. Then I added variety to my Daffodil bouquet by making some flowers darker than others.
Finally, I foam mounted the flowers on to my card front with Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I added a variety of metallic splatters from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set and stamped a gradient sentiment for a simple addition of color that complements the ink blending of the flowers.
$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!

This is my favorite craft a flower so far! What a release!
I found out about this site from Tina. She does wonderful work. I didn’t think I wanted to stamp or stencil but flowers, skates and tv made me change my mind. Everything is so beautiful.
Nice color share and project idea for the set. Hopefully I’ll be able to check out all the projects shared, but I might not make it since the list keeps growing. Will try, so sorry if I don’t make it to your stop.
Omg so beautiful
