Peony Cool Vibes

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card using the gorgeous Peony Cool Vibes Stamp and Die set from Spellbinders.

These flowers are gorgeous and so detailed, and I love that they come with this very simple but modern feeling sentiment.  It's a great combination.

I started by stamping a cluster of flowers to frame my sentiment.  I did stamp a couple of masks on post it notes to use in achieving this look.

While I wanted to color with Copics, my brain was tired, and I didn't want to have to think about shading.  Luckily these flowers are perfect for simple coloring since they have all those detailed lines.  So, I picked three shades of each of the color families, and just alternated as I colored - light, medium, dark.  Because of the detail in the flowers this isn't a super quick way to color, but it's very easy to do.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine, clear embossed, and then die cut and popped up over the flowers.

I just love striking what a look this is, and again the juxtaposition of the detail in the flowers and the clean lines of the sentiment are just right.

That's all for me today.  Thanks for visiting!
