Think Happy Thoughts!

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  Jess here with a card featuring the Peony Garden cling background stamp!

I started off by stamping the Peony Garden background stamp with versamark onto watercolor paper and heat-embossing it with white embossing powder.  Then I used a clean color real brush marker to add color to the petals and a water brush to blend the ink and add shading.  I did the same thing to the leaves and then fussy cut the outlined peonies.  The stamp uses outline and filled images and today I just wanted to use the outlines.

Next I smooshed some milled lavender distress ink onto my craft sheet and spritzed it with water.  I took a piece of watercolor paper and pressed it into the ink to get a soft wash of purple color.  I dried it with a heat gun and then added a little gold spray to the purple background.  Then I stamped the sentiment  from Get it Girl with versamark and heat-set it with gold embossing powder.  I used foam mounting tape to adhere the peonies to the watercolor background and added a sprinkling of Medallion Gold sequins to finish the card!

Thanks so much for visiting!  I can’t wait to see what you will create with the Peony Garden cling background stamp once it starts shipping today!! 🙂
