For today, I have another watercolored card for you today using our Peony Duo stamp set.

I started off by rose gold heat embossing my peony blooms on two corners of my watercolor panel. I had to do a bit of masking for the bottom cluster. I also did some additional masking for the leaves. When you emboss and mask a project several times, you want to make sure you peel off your masks before you apply any heat to your project. If you don’t, the mask will ruin your initial embossing since it will remelt the image (don’t ask me how I know).
Once I was satisfied with my embossing, I painted in my blooms using a combination of Tangerine and Alizarin Crimson color bursts. I applied a layer of my tangerine first to all of my peonies using a wet in wet watercoloring technique. I wet the blooms first with clean water. Then I applied the tangerine pigment with a fine tip water brush. I took another brush to blend the color out to the edges of the petals. Once my first layer of color was dried, I moved on to my second color (Alizarin Crimson). For this second layer, I applied the pigment to dry paper and pulled the color out a bit. I made sure not to pull the color out too much because I wanted the tangerine layer to shine through.
For the leaves, I did some messy and loose watercoloring using Pthalo Green and Turquoise color bursts (wet in wet watercoloring). I started by painting the actual leaves with the Pthlao Green. I did not take care to stay in the lines but I made sure that most of the leaves were painted in this shade. Next I added Turquoise to the inner portions of the leaves and also to the edges surrounding my floral clusters.
Once I finished painting, I dried the panel with my heat gun to prep my panel for some black splatters. Before I actually splattered on my black watercolor paint, I made sure to mask off the blooms with scrap paper. I only added the splatters to the white negative areas of my project. Then I used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large die collection to die cut the panel into an A2 panel. I mounted the stitched panel onto a side folding A2 base and then stamped the sentiment (from our Watercolor Wreaths) in our Caviar ink.
That is it for today! I hope you enjoyed my project and video!
