Peony Dream multi-colours

Hello there. My weekend didn’t go according to plan, so I have been at home – therefore time to craft. I am taking the Altenew 3D Floral Focus course, and have already created cards for the first couple of days. I am sharing a couple of cards I made based on the first day:

a different angle for each:

I used a Catherine Pooler stencil and some Cosmic Shimmer paste – one in a pearl white, and the other in gold for the background. I have had these pastes for absolutely years – and they still looked brand new and juicy in the pots.

The flowers are die cut using the Altenew 3D Peony Dream die-set, in a variety of different colours. I played around with the images and layers until I was happy with the colour combination, added some of the leaves from the same set, and even added some Tim Holtz leaf die-cuts too.

I must say – I would never have put these colours together – not in a month of Sunday crafting days (!!) – but I think they work.

Thank you so much to Altenew and Therese Calvird for the inspiration – and it’s Day One!!!!
