Hello everyone! Hope the month of July is off to a great start for you all! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I created using the beautiful Peony Dreams Cluster stamp! Peony Dreams Cluster is a big clear background stamp in 5.75 x 5.75 inches which includes two huge peonies.
For the first card I stamped the image as it is.
To start off I white heat embossed the Peony Dreams Cluster on a watercolor paper panel and colored the image using Color Burst powders. I colored one peony in Fuchsia and the other in orange leaving the tip of each petal almost white to add highlight.
After the panel was dry I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. I then cut the sentiment using Hugs word die once from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy Fine Silver and three times from some heavyweight white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it onto the card. I finished off the card by scattering some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.
For the next card I stamped only the part with one peony on a corner of a A2 sized panel, masked the flower and added some branches with little flowers to create a new floral cluster design.
I stamped Peony Dreams Cluster in light ink to do no-line coloring. After stamping was done I colored the image using Luminance colored pencils. I wanted to try a unusual color combination: burgundy, brown and gray. I also tried a new to me coloring style which shows the pencil strokes. It was hard for me to step out of my comfort zone but I’m glad I gave it a try.
The sentiment from Penned Sentiments set was gold heat embossed directly on the colored panel.
That’s it from me for today! I hope you enjoyed looking my cards!
Thanks for stopping by!
