Hello and welcome to Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day4! If you arrived here from Anna Komenda‘s blog, you’re right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the blog hop, please head on over to Altenew Card Blog! Huge Congratulations to Altenew! Thank you so much for being so awesome !!! It’s so exciting to be part of this amazing blog hop, celebrating Altenew’s 5th Anniversary with so many talented fellow crafters whom I admire!!! I love Altenew’s monthly Build-A-Flower series. I was so lucky to be invited to introduce Altenew’s very first BAF-Camellia and since then I’m in love with this monthly beauty. For today I chose my favorite Build-A-Flower stamp sets and colored the florals using colored pencils in botanical art style. So I focused more on coloring than the background or embellishment. My first card is featuring Build-A-Flower: Cattleya set.
I stamped the cattleya image on Toned Gray paper in a pigment white ink. I then colored the gorgeous orchid flowers using Luminance colored pencils. I’ve been wanting these pencils for so long and recently I finally could get them. They are great to use on colored papers thanks to the opaque covering. 
I searched for some colors of cattleya orchid flowers on Pinterest and chose the coral-light blue-light green combination for my flowers. To make the image pop, I added dark background in payne’s gray and prussian blue. I also ink blended the diagonal corners of the panel in white pigment ink to add more contrast. I then let the panel dry.
After the white pigment ink was completely dry, I white heat embossed the sentiment from One Day at a Time stamp set from March release on the colored panel using Pure White Crisp embossing powder.  I cut the panel and foam mounted it on a dark gray cardbase.
My next card is showcasing the Build-A-Flower: Anemone .
I stamped two anemone flowers on a Bristol Smooth paper in Pink Diamond and the leaves in Bamboo. I colored one flower in pink and the other in purple using Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils, drew the stems of the flowers and colored the leaves.
I chose an easy way to color the stamen. I stamped the stamen stamp from the set in Maple Yellow and added a little bit of darker yellow shades using colored pencils. After the coloring was done, I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the same set on the panel.
My first plan was to add the panel on the cardbase as it is, but I changed my mind and ink blended Bamboo and Parrot on the bottom edge of the panel. I left this card also without any embellishment like the first one.
That’s it from my side for today! Hope you liked looking my cards.
