Monochrome Peonies

Today I have a card using my new stamp set from Altenew - Peony Bouquet. I absolutely love this beautiful set and stamping the multi layered blooms.

I used the grey inks from Altenew to create this monochrome card. I didn't have any cardstock to match for the die cut frame so I inked up some white cardstock with the darkest grey and die cut that. Created masks by stamping on copy paper and did some masking to create my floral cluster. Fussy cut the large bloom and popped it up for some dimension, it is also stamped underneath.

I am entering this card:
