Altenew Peony Bouquet

Hello. I'm popping in quickly with a card I made for Less is More - where the theme is the color purple this week. I needed a card for a former colleague whose favorite color just happens to be purple.

I bought the Altenew Peony Bouquet set at the stamp show a few weeks ago and finally sat done with a friend yesterday to play with layering this gorgeous peony. Thank goodness I also bought the Mini MISTI at the show. I wasn't going to buy the new one because I have the larger one, but I'm so glad I did. It's the perfect size for cards.

After several attempts at layering the 4 different stamps that create this peony, I'm finally happy with this one. I used the Altenew Shades of Purple  mini ink set to create the different colored layers. The leaves were inked with the Green Fields mini inks. The peony was fussy cut and adhered over the leaves with foam onto the card base. The sentiment is from Altenew Painted Greetings and was inked with one of the purple shades.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day. Enjoy!
