I was coloring last night, this time using my Zig markers. Watercoloring is a hard one for me and it took three hours to finish this peonies.
I made a small peony cluster on the center of an A2 panel (Bristol smooth) using the Loose Peonies stamp set by The Ton. I borrowed the leaves from Large Peony 1 and Large Peony 3.
I stamped the peonies in Tattered Rose and the leaves in Antique Linen DI, masking the images wherever needed. The colors I used for peonies are Light Pink, Light Carmine, Orange, Fl.pink, Dark pink and Blue gray, colors for leaves are Pale gr, Light Gr, Green and Persian Gr. I added some light gray shade along the outline of the bottom part.
To turn the colored image into a card was not easy. At first I had no idea how to do for a while.
As I wanted to give the flowers some sky, I decided to cut out a part, after I sketched a big circle. I then blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Crushed Olive on the white card base and added some white splatters on it.
The sentiment is from Sending Peonies stamp set from The Ton as well. I stamped the "Sending" in black on the front panel and added the heat embossed (Liquid platinum) small sentiment using some foam adhesive.
The front panel was foam mounted on the card base. To finish off I scattered some clear sequins.
Here some close-up pics!
I want to enter this card into Addicted to CAS #98: Watercolour and into The Flower Challenge #1: Anything Goes.
Thank you so much for coming!
Have a beautiful day!!!
