Now, let's move onto my projects for today.


This stamp set features two beautiful layered coneflowers. Each part of the flower (flower center, petals, leaves, and stems) comes with two coloring-layering stamps. The larger flower has three color layers for the petals.

Altenew-BAF Coneflower-Simple Frame Mask Stencil

The most common coneflowers are likely the purple or pink ones. I decided to stamp a few bright-colored coneflowers. Each of the flowers has its distinctive shape and that makes it super easy to line up.

By following the guide from the package, I was able to stamp each of the coneflowers easily.

The following are the color combos for these coneflowers.

Pink Coneflower: Pink Diamond, Fuchsia, and Coral Berry (outline).

Yellow/orange Coneflower: Vanilla Cream, Orange Cream, and Snapdragon.

Greenery: Tropical Forest Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set (Bamboo, Parrot, and Olive).

After stamping the flower center in yellow (Maple Yellow and Hazelnut), I added glitter and tiny black dots with Altenew Fine Liner Pen Set. Those dotty details make the flowers SING!

For the blue framed background, I took out the Small Ink Blending Tools and applied Sea Breeze with Simple Frame Mask Stencil. While the stencil was still in place, I took out my Airbrush Tool (compatible with Altenew Artist Markers) and sprayed some tiny droplets within the frame.
