Altenew Build-A-Flower: Bearded Iris Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

If you are looking for the most elegant and realistic iris, you are in the right place! This stamp set prominently features a gorgeous bearded iris outline with four additional coloring layers, along with its stems and leaves. You may use the other iris outline as background foliage, or simply add it to floral arrangements stamped as is or colored in with your favorite coloring medium.

For my card, I decided to try experimenting with pigment inks and layering with pigment inks. I embossed the outline of the stamp in silver. I feel like the layering stamps got a bit lost in the process, but I still find the card to be quite pretty. It’s shiny in person 🙂

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 07/07/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 07/09/2021.
