Love gardenias. This set -- my second Altenew set ever, behind Remember This -- leaves me a bit underwhelmed; I think it's the grungy/"artsy" detail layer (just not my style) and the outline-only leaves. Because of that, I typically skip the solid blob layer when stamping the flowers, and make the grungy layer a very light shade (like Vanilla Cream/Buttercream/Blush/Soft Lilac) to de-emphasize it. I tend to prefer 4+ layers, including any outline. (The exception to that rule is the Camellia; it's really super pretty for being only 3 layers.) I think I'd be much happier with the Build-A-Flower Gardenia set, instead. This one is super easy to line up, though, and the outline images are beautifully shaped!
After I made the flowers, I felt like they needed another layer so I added some touches with my copic markers and then I was happy with them.
I love gardenias and this Altenew stamp set is absolutely perfect for my cards. Altenew never disappoints.
