June Papertrey Blog Hop

This month's inspiration photo included the colors Harvest Gold, New Leaf, and Aqua Mist.  I further challenged myself to use my new dies for the beautiful Pretty Peonies set and to do something else I hardly ever do -- use only one stamp set for my card(s).   Here is my first card:
For this one, I stamped the outlined peony in New Leaf ink onto Aqua Mist card stock to create the background.  I die cut the flower and the frame and stamped the frame with New Leaf ink and added the sentiment in Basic Gray (SU).  I colored the die cut peony with Copics.  I punched a little strip of Harvest Gold (SU scallop punch) to peek out from the bottom and also cut a strip to break up the background a bit.  I added a few peeks of yellow to the centers of the flowers in the stamped background as well as 3 rhinestones colored to match with my Copics.

Thanks for looking!

I find it difficult to use only one stamp set on a card, but you did a terrific job! Great take on the inspiration photo!

Your background stamping is really impressive.
