Peony Fields x 2

Hello crafty friends!! Here in the Midwest, we finally saw break in the heat this week and I am thoroughly enjoying it!! The humidity here has been unbearable, so the cooler weather has been welcomed with open arms!

I have a couple of cards to share with you today…each features a different technique using the Peony Fields Cling Background stamp.

Peony-Fields-1

This first one uses Tombow markers to create a watercolor look…

Peony-Fields-3

I started by coloring directly on the Peony Fields Cling Background stamp with Tombow markers, spritzing it with water and stamping it onto Bristol paper. I absolutely LOVE this watercolor effect!! After the panel was completely dry, I die-cut it using the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Sm) and splattering on some black paint. One of my all-time favorite sentiments, from Large Peony 4, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock. A few Glass Slippers Sequins add a bit of sparkle.

The second card was created using ink pads…

Peony-Fields-6

This look is best achieved by using a MISTI or another type of stamping tool. I simply used sponge daubers to “dab” a small amount of ink onto the Peony Fields Cling Background stamp and then stamped it onto Bristol paper. I just repeated “dabbing” and stamping until I achieved a look that I liked. The inks that I used were: Bleach Blondie, Amber Citrine, Soft Garnet, Red Sangria, Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Cali Blue and Caribbean Turquoise. The rest of the steps are the same as the first card.

Peony-Fields-7

That’ll do it for me today!!! Take care!!!
