Video : Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Blog Hop & Giveaway!

It’s time for the next Build-A-Flower release from Altenew and this one is a Sweet Violet.  We are hopping along to celebrate the release so you should have arrived here from ASHLEA’s amazing Blog!

Yes, it’s another beauty and today I decided to create my own teacup of Sweet Violets.

I coloured my images using the Artist Markers and then used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out (love that about the BAF sets)!

I added a subtle embossed background using the Sunburst Stencil.  As well as a sentiment from the Vintage Teacup Stamp Set embossed in Rose Gold.

  23. I have never seen a violet without thinking of my Mum… hers were years old – some from those her mother kept!! I can’t grow them to save my life – something special in my mother’s touch that I’m lacking! Off to watch… xx
