Altenew Dainty Bouquet Set

Hey all!  Hope you had a nice weekend.  I was able to get some time in the craft room and inked up one of my newest Altenew acquisitions, the Dainty Bouquet set.

This is one of those sets I would have avoided like the plague before I had a MISTI, but a stamp positioner makes all the difference here.

From a color standpoint I was actually inspired by the stamping guide that comes with the set.  They show the solid images in gray with a line that shows you were to line up the stamp.  I like the contrast of that gray with the color, and thought I would see how it looks in real life.

I used Altenew inks for the stamping.  The gray was Evening Gray, and then I used Crimson and Velvet for the flowers and Volcano Lake and Emerald for the leaves.

Once the stamping was done, I trimmed the panel down and used Altenew's Thinking of You die for the sentiment.  It was die cut three times from a dark gray cardstock and adhered together to add some dimension.

This is such a pretty floral set.  I'm looking forward to experimenting with some more color combinations!
