Antique Peonies



This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour combo that's pretty and bright. So I made my card with the Asian Artistry Stamp Set, this is still one of my favourites, and peonies are one of my favourite flowers! I wanted to produce a card that had an antique look to it, the Soft Suede is a perfect ink for this. I have stamped and masked the Peony stamp and using Aqua Painters coloured them in with soft suede ink and Rose Red Pastel. I've sponged a mountain and sky background again with Soft Suede but also the Elegant Eggplant. Finally I added some bling from a brad and some ribbon. I thought the colour on the combo was Whisper White, so added the ribbon in that colour only to discover as I finished that it was actually Very Vanilla... Nevermind I don't have any Very Vanila Ribbon anyway.

Debi, this is BEAUTIFUL!! You sure did achieve an antique look; I love the distressed edges, and the softness of the main panel. Gorgeous card.
