Water Colour Wednesday - Peony Bouquet

Hi Everybody,

Strictly speaking this is not a water colour although it has been done with water based Distress Inks. 

But in this case the stamps do all the work for you and you just get the pretty result at the end.

This is using the new  Peony Bouquet   from Altenew.  It is a layered stamp and there is a matching  die  to go with it ... aaaand it is gorgeous !!

Both products are from  Sevenhills Crafts  which is a UK company but they stock a lot of the newest stamps from the USA without the expensive postage costs.

The Distress Inks I have used are Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Squeezed lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss and they have been stamped onto Neenah Classic card 

The enamel dots are from  Want2Scrap  and they blend really well with the flowers

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    WOW!! What a magnificent card today! I love the stamp (of course when I went to check it out it's unavailable right now). Distress inks really do a wonderful job when used for painting effects don't they. It's just beautiful :)
