Peony Card

Hello Everyone! Carla here today. Hope your week is going well... we're halfway through the week! Today's project is a Peony card, I was feeling floral again... must be all the snow :)

To color in the blue background on the stamped image, I used Seafoam Creative Inspirations Paint. It is a very cool effect to have the shimmery "water" against the watercolored flowers... almost looks like they are floating on a pond! I used Onyx and Antique Gold to highlight the centres of the flowers.

For the background on the card base, I used a large stamp, inked with Fairy Dust to stamp a subtle sheen and add a little interest without overpowering the inage stamp. It's quite stunning in real life. Here's a close up of the details and shine!

Hope you enjoyed today's project!
