Altenew Peony Bouquet--Finally

I confess, I am terrible about stalking a stamp set--like not resting until I have it--and then letting it sit and not be used for a very long time.  The Peony Bouquet set by Altenew is one of those stamp sets.  I had to have it and did not rest until I got it.  That was a year ago and I finally got it out to use this week.

It has lived up to my expectations.  With minimal effort I was able to create these stunning peonies.  I used the Altenew ink cubes to create my layers.  Their inks are rich and stamp so cleanly.  The hardest part of this card with figuring out where the images line up at.  Once I found a couple spots it was a snap.

The sentiment I used is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big line.

I added a few seed beads to the card for some dimension.

  1. Your card is gorgeous. I like how you used that stamp set. I am exactly the same as you about letting things sit that I 'had to have'. Like how you have called it stalking a stamp set. Very appropriate!
