BLUE PEONY

The challenge for August at CAS Mix-Up is to use sprays, stamping and a choice.  

 
Since I had stamped and embossed quite a few of the peonies, I colored another one with my Zigs.  Made the background by smooshing (choice) peacock feathers and tumbled glass distress ink on a piece of watercolor paper.  Then made a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water and sprayed with a mini mister.  That caused the colors to blend and spread a bit more and gave it a wonderful pearly finish.  When it was all dry, I die cut the piece.  Figured out where to put the sentiment and stamped in black and clear embossed.  Then added the panels and the florals.  You'll have to believe me about how pretty and shiny the card is.  There's still time to enter this challenge as it ends on 24 August.

 
Thanks for visiting to day and your comments make my day!
