Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

7 September 2020

 


Welcome to the September Craft-A-Flower Anemone Blog Hop and Giveaway. 
When I got the set, I knew I wanted to use grey on black. I looked through my cardstock and chose a couple of greys that worked well together. I also added a bit of white for extra contrast. 


The card is very simple and is composed of two blooms and two leaves. I decided to use the detailed die cut as leaf and didn't add the base layer. 

For my sentiment I used a printed sticker and added it to the black cardstock. 
I really love the contrast created by these colours and I'll definitely be using more grey in the future.
