Video: You’re Beautiful Peony Card

Photo taken against our White Marble Photo Backdrop Board

Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, I have a video and card using our Peony Close Up and Color Bursts. I’m not doing my traditional watercolor painting today. Instead, I’ll be squeezing the powder directly onto my project!

I started off by white heat embossing the stamp onto an A2 sized watercolor paper panel. Then I wet the entire panel with clean water using a spray bottle.

Next, I started squeezing Color Burst pigments directly onto the wet image. I started with Fuchsia, Gamboge and then Pthalo Green. I saturated the paper enough where I did not have to use my water brush that often to control where the pigment went. I let the pigments move more naturally on my project. Whenever there was an accumulation of too much water, I just dabbed it up with a paper towel. Once my panel was “painted”, I dried it with a heat gun.

Before I die cut my sentiment, I added stitching to the edges of my panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles (Large) Die collection. Next, I used our new Sweetheart Wordplate Die collection to create my sentiment for this project. I die cut the “beautiful” directly onto my watercolor panel. Then I die cut the “you’re” on white cardstock.

Next, I adhered my peony panel onto a side folding A2 card base using our strong Double Sided Adhesive. Lastly, I added the “you’re” directly onto the panel completing my project.

Thanks for stopping by!!

    Beautiful. I cant seem to get the Color burst to work like you can. I love watching you make this flower come to life. So stunning. Love how you did the beautiful die. Thanks for the video.

    Beautiful Effie, can’t wait to try this! I would be tempted to tape down the paper on a board, but for this technique I can see it may be helpful to not have it taped down. Thanks for the inspiration!
