Altenew Build-A-Flower: Rose!

Hello friends!
The long wait is over...
 Altenew has been coming up with Build-a Flower monthly sets and that time is here!

s

"This month, our Build-A-Flower series is honoring the rose! Roses are heart-stoppingly beautiful, and their aroma is equally show-stopping. With such an impressive presence, it is no wonder that roses have symbolized some powerful elements throughout human history. We tried to capture the timeless beauty of this flower by giving it extra depth with six layers. Achieve a realistic look with this Rose set which is a must-have for every flower lover!"

This set has it all--the etched details and excellent layering....
What more can one want?  

I had a blast stamping with this Build-A-Flower: Rose !
Can you tell there are 6 layers!?

I followed the guides/instructions on the package and it really helped me to align the stamps.
Notice the dry-emboss details? I used the matching die along with Tan Embossing Mat.
This mat may not look like much, but when you do dry-embossing with it, the difference is HUGE.

Instead of stamping leaves in green, I decided to stamp them in grey with Rock Collection
(shop Altenew here, SSS here). I stamped the rose in Rose Dye Ink and Cherry Blossom.
For the small flowers, I colored them in Altenew Artist Markers

btw if you don't have any GREY ink in your collection, you MUST get
Rock Collection(shop Altenew here, SSS here). 
GREY is also very trendy if you have not noticed lately.... 😊

For my 2nd card, I did some embossing with one of the sketchy stamp.
The Golden Peach Embossing Powder  (shop SSS) really enhances the overall design.

I stamped the yellow rose in Pocketful of Sunshine (shop Simon Says Stamp) and Warm and Cozy (shop SSS) Collection. The leaves were stamped in Seashore (shop SSS) Collection.

 I also utilized Watercolor Stencil  (shop Simon Says Stamp)with the  Rock Collection to create stripes! Love love the gradient!

These are lovely cards Virginia! I think the softness of the grey leaves really makes the pink in the rose pop. The gradient with the yellow rose is adds a soothing touch - so it fits so well with the sentiment. Beautifully done!

What a beautiful rose on both cards. The images are outstanding. Loving the grey leaves on the 1st card and the teal/aqua leaves with the embossed yellow rose. Colors are incredible and the dry embossed effect is really impressive (no pun intended...or maybe it was).
