Build-A-Flower: Hyacinth

The Hyacinth flower is a lovely cool weather plant native to the eastern Mediterranean region. These highly fragrant, bell-shaped flowers come in many colors. They bloom in the palest pink to the deepest magenta. There are also some beautiful blues including a soft baby blue and a striking, deep indigo blue. Symbolizing sport or play in the language of flowers, hyacinths represent constancy, while the blue hyacinth expresses sincerity.

In this set, we have included two hyacinth flower bunches. Each cluster of flowers has a solid layer and two detail layers, while the stems and leaves have two layers. The larger flower bunch has an additional flower-center layer.

Here's how the set layers:

I love flowers & so do the mutant ninja squirrels in my yard. That’s why I love Altenew stamps. Not only are they beautiful but the squirrels in my yard can’t destroy them! Oh my gosh, I could make multi colored, glitter Hyacinths on a card with some raindrops! I am getting ideas all over the place! Thank you Altenew for the beautiful stamps & for giving us the chance to win something. I want this stamp for sure when I win!
