YELLOW PEONIES

I made my card for three challenges today - the colors are from Altenew's "From Places Abroad-Australia" challenge, the heat embossing, stamping and watercoloring are for CAS Mix-Up and Simon Say Stamp's challenge is "flowers".


I heat embossed the peonies and leaves in white and colored with my Zigs - blended out the colors with just a slightly damp brush.  The background piece was die cut and I added the blue dotted section.  I did my stamping of the sentiment before I put it all together tho - knowing me I would have stamped it wrong!  Also did the flourishes beforehand and then popped the piece up with foam tape. I arranged my flowers and added a few clear sequins and done!!


Thanks for visiting and love to read your kind comments.
