Hello and thank you for joining the blog hop celebrating BAF Wild Rose. This month's build a flower from Altenew is a delightful large floral image that I had a lot of fun stamping with inks from different color families.

Within this Build-A-Flower stamp set, there are beautiful floral images that you can either color or do layered stamping.

Each month, Altenew hosts a challenge on their blog. The challenge is to come up with a project based on either the challenge colors or the image or both. This month's color palette of pinks and reds was really inspiring to me so I decided to play along. Read on to see how I interpreted Altenew's color challenge for January.

Altenew Education Certification Program level 2 challenge
Here it is....the final challenge of level 2. So far I have taken 20 Altenew Academy classes and made 37 cards. This has been a really great experience to improve my card presentation and to learn different techniques. For this challenge I had to make a home decor project using inspiration from some of the 20 classes I have taken. I decided to make some prints in the spirit of John Audubon’s nature prints. I had been planning on purchasing some Audubon original book plates but these are really expensive. The book plates have really simple images and have just a flower or birds with the species name in typeface. Altenew stamp sets have beautiful detailed images that I thought would work great for this project. Read on for how I put together these home decor pieces. If you have questions on the Altenew Educator Program, please let me know as I would be happy to talk about my experiences so far. I’ve included affiliate links in this post for the items I used to make these pieces. If you use these links to purchase the items, I may get a small commission at no cost to you. Thank you for your support.
Altenew Color Your Day
In the mood for color
For the latest installment of my Altenew Educator Certification Program, I was inspired by a class called, In the Mood for Color. In this class, the instructor discussed how different colors evoke certain moods, I wanted to explore this so I made two cards that contain the same elements and design but in different colors. I chose yellow which signifies energy and blue which signifies calm. I used Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set to build the flower which will be the main design element on the card. Please read on for how I assembled this card. And leave me a comment about which color you like the best.
