Be-You-Tiful Peonies



It's my turn on the Jane's Doodles blog today.  I pulled out one of my very favorite sets, Pretty Peonies.

The flowers were stamped, with a bit of masking, and then colored with Copics.  To make the flowers pop a bit.  I outlined them with a fairly broad stroke using my palest gray (C1) and then went in just on the edge of the flower and added a very thing line of a darker gray (C2).

For the sentiment, I used the Be-YOU-Tiful die from Ellen Hutson.  It was cut four times.  I stacked/adhered the bottom three layers together first.  The last layer was clear embossed several times to get the look of an epoxy sticker and then adhered to the top of the stack which was then attached to the card.



Aren't those big blooms just gorgeous!  Happily, my real peonies are just getting set to burst, they are my very favorite flower and I look forward to this couple of weeks all year!
