Altenew All About Layering 2

So this week I'm doing some homework on my certification classes for Altenew.
I have enjoyed working on these classes and using the Altenew products.  First I must admit it's a big decision on which stamp set to pick for my project.
I believe you need to have the big picture in mind before you start.

What colors are you going to pick?
What stamp set?
Extras or embellishments?

So with that in mind I have selected the Build-A-Flower: Aster stamp set for this assignment.

I have learned that the stamp layering diagram on the back of the stamp set is VERY helpful.
If you follow the steps outlined, its hard to mess up.  I used the orange color palette for these flowers because thats the color I envision Asters.

 I believe using the Misti stamping tool is very helpful for this project.  It allows me to re-ink the stamp to get perfect coverage of ink.

I also like to custom color my ribbon to match my projects and I found that Altenew inks are a perfect choice and work very well.  I rub the ink pad over my ribbon and then spray a little water over the ribbon to spread the color.  I allow the ribbon to dry or use a heat tool to speed up the process.

I've layered the die cut flowers over an embossed background panel, added the sentiment and bow for a finished card.

Thanks again for checking in today
