Stampendous Peonies..... Oh so pretty !!!

Hello again.....

Well I have just finished my latest card and for this I use the pretty Stampendous Peonie Stamp and boy do I love it.....

I stamped onto a music paper and then coloured the flowers with Wild Honey and Seedless Perserve Distress Inks using a Baby wipes so I got a rather patchy effect than the usual smooth blended look.... I then layered it up onto a stencilled Distress Inked blended background using the same colours and using a Penny Black Stencil called Floral Spray and again the same Distress Inks I stencilled the image over the background and using a Baby Wipes to take colour out I remove some colour and left the white showing through ..... Using a Gold Sparkle Gel Pen I lightly went around some of the images to give extra interest ......

I really didn't know when I started where I was going with this design but when I finished it I actually love what I did.... Hope you do too !!!

Thanks for popping by and see you again soon with another creation !!!

Lots of love


  1. lovely card Marianne and beautiful shades. love the background xx

  2. Love your interesting backgrounds, the outline of the gel pen works every time and the peony stamp is now on my wish list. Love your work it must have been great having your mother encouraging you to craft from an early age. I have only been making cards for 18 months but I find it keeps me calm and I wish I had started years ago, it's great to have a hobby or an obsession as my hubby calls it.xx

  3. Super background Marianne .. I love your cards cos your work is tip top!
