Build-A-Flower: Larkspur


Altenew Build-A-Flower:Larkspur | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Hello friends!
Yay! It's Build-A-Flower release day and this month's flower is Larkspur.
What a beautiful flower this is!
I was very sick when I made this card but I am happy it turned out pretty good.
The photos didn't come out great but it looks very pretty in person.

Altenew Build-A-Flower:Larkspur | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I heat embossed the images in Golden Peach Embossing Powder. I used distress reinkers to watercolour. After die cutting the images I worked on the front panel by adding a light colour wash of green and tons of splatters. To this panel I adhered two thin strips of glitter cardstock, stamped the sentiment and then arranged my images.
In the end I added some gold confetti.
