Hello crafty friends! Hope your week is off to a great start!
It’s TaeEun here today with a fiery floral card featuring Coming Up Peonies. I colored this beautiful peony cluster from Coming Up Peonies set using Copic markers. I tried a new color combination.
I started off by stamping the image in Copic friendly Caviar hybrid ink. The peonies were colored in R30, R32, R37 and R89 which create beautiful coral shade. The leaves and stems were colored using V91, V93, V95 and V99. These V colors are very similar to warm gray colors with a touch of violet.
After coloring was done I cut the image using the coordinating die and set it aside.
I wanted a dark background. At first I tried a black panel but changed my mind and blended a coral to black ombre on a white panel. I used Coral Cavern, Peach Blossom, Grape Crush , Smoky Quartz, Light Onyx and Noir. I let the panel completely dry and stamped the Modern Plaid background stamp in an embossing ink on it. I then applied Mandarin Perfect Pearls powder on it using a dry paint brush. The powder sticks on the embossing ink and creates a subtle shiny pattern. I added water to the same powder and splattered it onto the panel. I also splattered white opaque ink.
After the panel was dry I cut it using the largest Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it on a black cardbase. I then foam mounted the Coming Up Peonies image on it.
The die cut sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die from Glossy Fine Black Adhesive glitter paper and from some black fun foam. I raised the black glitter die cut on the fun foam and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by and looking my card today! Hope you enjoyed it :)!
Have a wonderful and crafty week!

This wonderfully blended background is gorgeous paired with the pretty florals. Such lovely colors for the leaves and flowers. Thanks for sharing your creativity.
Wow, gorgeous card!
Beautiful. Gorgeous. I love the background and the colors. The flower is beautiful and Oh I would love to water color.
This peony is beautifully coloured by you TaeEun and the strong background with the plaid stamped over the top and covered with the pretty perfect pearls and then the spattering and added sparkly sequins complements the flowers perfectly. x
Sorry I should have said ‘these peonies’ as there is definitely more than one…silly me! x
Gorgeous card, TaeEun! Such a striking background and your flowers are just perfect!
