Grey Peony

20180315_114023

Hello there. I have a muted and monochrome peony for your today.

I first stamped the Altenew ‘Peony Bouquet’ in the Altenew grey inks, using all of the grey colours, then masked the flower off and stamped the leaves around it. I used a combination of leaves from the same stamp set, though I wanted their appearance a little more subtle, so I didn’t use all of the layers, and only used the lighter grey inks.

The even more subtle leaves and buds are from the Altenew ‘Freeform Greenery’ stamp set, just using the lightest grey.

The sentiment is from MFT ‘Big Birthday Wishes’ – a great set of stamps with a wide variety of sentiments – and stamped using a darker grey ink.

I then die cut the squares – white and grey – using a Sue Wilson stitched squares die set, and adhered flat to the white base card.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. Such a stunning card! It immediately caught my attention and I simply loved the various generations of ink used to achieve such a soft, and subtle floral scene. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at the Watercooler Wednesday “All Occasions” challenge this week.
