Altenew Build-A-Flower Poinsettia and Golden Garden Stamp sets watercoloured using distress inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

My base is one layered. I added some cooler and warmer greens to make a watercoloured background to place the flower on.
For the flower, I stamped it twice using Versamak and then heat embossed the images with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing powder. I fussy cut the flowers and layered them on top of another.
I also added a few leafy vines from the Golden Garden stamp set.
The layering of two flowers gives it a totally new look.
