Love this sketch from Leigh Penner for the week and just had to play along over at (CASE) this sketch! Enough said. I finally used my Altenew Peony Bouquet set. I've owned the stamps for a little while but only got the dies last week because they've been out of stock everywhere for the longest time. Since I am so bad at masking, I really did need the dies. :) Like all Altenew sets, quite difficult but so worth it. I actually prefer the smaller (gorgeous/unique) images in this set to the large peony flower.
I think both cards sort of look like botanical illustrations, but the bird adds more of that look, and I kind of like the red tones he adds to the card. But it is less CAS with him. Is it only papercrafters who are so indecisive (at least I am)?!!
I did the sentiment on my computer (kisses & hugs in French; I always say hugs & kisses in English, but the opposite in French) and Minc'd it with Therm O Web Deco Foil in a gorgeous colour, Emerald Watercolor, so beautiful in person, with lots of subtlety, not brash in any way ...
That's it for me. Thanks for the fun challenge! Edited to add that I was the ...
