This card features the Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew and some three dimensional flourishes I created using some silicone molds and hot glue. Once the flourishes were hard I dusted them with pear-ex powder to give them a shimmery gold shine. The pattern on the side are washi tape, inspired by one of Catherine Pooler's cards over on Stamp Nation (www.thestampnation.com).
I haven't really done layered stamping but have seen many videos of it and think the images always come out looking so good. I especially like layered floral stamps and this particular set comes from The Ton, they also had an ink I was kind of in love with; a rose gold pigment ink which I used as the lightest color in these peonies. Since I was going with this rose gold color I decided going against the traditional pink flowers and went with a peachy orange.
Each of these images has three stamps, you begin with the most solid stamp in the lightest color then progress to the least solid image with the darkest color. It requires a lot of stamping and that you line up your images precisely. The one tool I used that really made a difference was the M.I.S.T.I., it really helps to ensure you are stamping in exactly the same place every time. It was very helpful with this stamp set.
There are also coordinating dies for the stamp set. The card took a long time to make, but I love the final result. I wanted to keep the flowers as the main focus so I kept it pretty simple otherwise. I add the bright blue boy as the focal point, hopefully drawing the eye to start there then move (and hopefully linger) over the rich layered flowers.
