PEONIES

The Fusion Challenge this week has a gorgeous photo, beautiful colors and a great sketch for their second anniversary.



For my card I colored Alternew's Peony Scrolls with pink and yellow Zig watercolor markers and then blended with WOS clear shimmer - I didn't clean the brush and so the two colors blended into kind of a orangey color.  For the background I "quilt embossed" with the PTI chevron coverplate.  The yellow/white paper behind the flowers is just a scrap from my stash of patterned paper. The sandwich I used on my Cuttlebug to dry emboss was A, B, tan mat, cardstock, coverplate/die face down, B.

Thanks for visiting today and love reading your kind comments.  Betty
