Peony Scrolls on Kraft Card

I wanted to experiment with different colors to go with kraft cardstock in making cards. I believe, white on brown background provides the most contrast and helps brought out other colors' brightness.

I created following cards using Altenew PEONY SCROLLS Clear Stamp Set AN140 stamp set. I stamped flower images on a kraft cardstock in white. For one card, I colored them with purple and magenta soft pastels and for another I colored them with similar colors from pearlescent watercolors.

I created backgrounds using polka dot stencils in white. For additional interest, I added a half of Splendid circle die-cut in vellum with a white ornate image stamped in the center before attaching flowers in one card. In another, I added one of the Damask accent die-cuts in silver to match with glittery pearlescent painted flowers. Lastly, I decided to go over stamped image outlines on flowers with white gelly roll pen as they were dulled after coloring with pastels, and embelished with liquid pearls.
