One of my favourite flowers is cornflowers - just love all those blues. So when I saw the Altenew Wild About You set, I just had to have it. Here is one of the cornflowers in my garden this summer.

It arrived a couple of days ago and the first time I used it, I wanted to make them look like cornflowers.  So I used all 3 layers of the stamps.

Then I wanted to try a different look, and decided to take artistic license and go with the colours of the Altenew January Challenge. I used the top layer stamp with Distress Oxides, then applied water to give it a watercolour effect. Added some black doodles, dots and lines. Also used my new Spellbinder Hemstitch Rectangle die.
