Welcome to day 2 of the May Release from Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we get to share another floral set and I’m thrilled to introduce Peony Blooms. And do I ever love peonies!!
I was totally inspired by my own peonies that are blooming right now. These flowers are so special that I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple. I stamped the image onto Bristol Smooth paper and colored using Zig Clean Color Markers. A few shades of each color was all I needed.
After coloring the flowers, I cut them out with the coordinating die. Then I cut a frame from the Framework Dies (shown yesterday). This scalloped frame is really wonderful, don’t you think? I added a sentiment from the stamp set (LOVE this style of script) and then popped the frame and the flowers up on foam tape. I added a few colored pearls that I thought were pretty with the image. Mostly, I didn’t want to do anything to take away from the beautiful art of these flowers!!
And speaking of flowers, here are my gorgeous peonies from over the weekend. Yep, the timing on this stamp set could not be better. Now let’s go see what the rest of the team created! Now on to everyone’s favorite part of release week. A chance to win!!
