PEONIES

Was playing around with distress inks and water with the EH mondo peony yesterday - today made them into two cards for two different challenges.



On both cards, I stamped and embossed the flowers and leaves on some watercolor paper and then smooshed with picked raspberry and wild honey.  The sentiment on both is from SSS "You Matter" set.  

The first card is for "Inspired by All the Little Things" and the second is "The Paper Players".  My colors aren't as vibrant as the challenge colors, but they're all there.


Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
