Altenew Peony Bouquet 

I love the Altenew range for their realistic floral building stamp sets. I was blown away by how beautiful these peony flowers were when I stamped them for the first time.

I used the Altenew ink cubes to stamp the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Peony Bouquet stamp set. The Altenew inks are sold in sets of 4 mini cubes of tonal colours, which make stamping these layering sets really easy. I die cut the images using the coordinating dies.

On an A6 card front, I used a stamp from the Clearly Besotted Diagonal Stripes stamp set in navy blue. 

I played around with the layout of flowers and leaves until I was happy with the design, then stuck them down with micro glue dots. 

I used a greeting from the Altenew Oriental Orchid stamp set, stamping it in the same navy blue ink. I used the mini Misti to get a good stamped impression.

I finished the card with some sequins.
