Another Take on Build-a-Flower (Gardenia)

Happy Saturday, friends!
I am popping in with another take of Build-a-Flower Gardenia.
 

Altenew_BAF_Gardenia_Virginia #2
Instead of keeping it white/grey-ish like I did last time, I took a more colorful approach.

blessed to have you in my life
Instead of using ink, I used one of my favorites- Alcohol Inks.

Steps I took to create this card (products are highlighted):
~apply Alcohol Ink(see here and here) on Bazzill Vellum
~emboss the Gardenia in Antique Gold
~make the die cut and adhere them to Pale Gray card stock
~stamp the leafy background in Seashore
~embellish with Gold Glitter Tape and Pretty Pink Posh sequins

By the way, this set can be purchased as a bundle like the following.

shop Simon Says Stamp here

DIY ornament #1
I embossed it several times. This way, it strengthen the piece and adds volumes and shine, too.

I also did a colorful version, too.

I added some shine by embossing the piece with Crystal Clear Crisp Embossing Powder.

I hope that you love this idea and perhaps this inspires you to give it a try!
