Birthday Peonies

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the new beautiful Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set. It is so pretty and great for layering up.

I started off with a panel of white cardstock cut using the ME rectangle Femme Frames die. I then stamped the first layer of the peonies using black ink, this is the outline layer. I then stamped the solid layer with Memento Lulu Lavender ink, the next layer was with PTI Winter Wisteria ink and the final, more detailed layer with Memento Elderberry ink. The leaves are three step and I used the same black, Memento New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves.
To make the flowers pop even more, I added a shadow/halo around them with B000 and B0000 Copic Markers. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the darkest parts of the flowers. The SSS Birthday die cut was cut twice form Black cardstock and layered up The 'wishes' was stamped on to the panel with black ink and the 'birthday' added above. The panel was then added to a white A2 card base with foam sheet.

I have to be honest and say that I struggled a bit to line up the layers on the larger flower but I think it came out ok in the end. I am looking forward to using the outline image and doing some colouring on the inside with Copics or pencils. Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day!
