For my card, I used Altenew's Peony Bouquet Layering Stamp Set. I wanted to incorporate the colors within the challenge and stamped the flowers pink and included green foliage. To include an Asian influence, I added a Chinese Script Hero Arts Stamp, Love.
To create depth in the image, I masked the flower and leaves. The leaves were stamped with Momento Pear Tart and Bamboo Leaves and Hero Arts Field Greens. The smaller leaves were stamped with distress ink: peeled paint, crushed olive and bundled sage.
To compete the card, I cut the panel to 4x5.25 and adhered the panel to a top folding pink cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I wanted to keep the card clean and simple and allow the message of Love to shine through. To provide a bit of shine, I added some sequins from Simon Says Stamp December 2016 Card Kit. I try to group my sequins in groups of three to make a wonky triangle and I typically add them in odd numbers over the card. I adhered them using Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue. I left the inside blank and would be interested in hearing what you think should be on the inside.
