Peony Delight Happy Birthday

This beautiful image is from Conie Fong. She has a lot of really cute girl images and a few pretty flower arrangements. It was printed onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock. I like this cardstock because it has a really smooth finish and you get beautiful results with your Copic Markers and also because its weight goes through most printers easily.

I search the interest for peony images and decided to color these flowers in a pretty soft pink. The smaller flowers were colored purple. I really like the combination of these two colors together.

Once the coloring was complete the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink and then heat set with gold embossing powder. To add visual interest it was die cut using a Spellbinder Fancy Edged Oval die. I liked the way it looked but I finally decided to really draw the eye to the focal image by cutting a gold frame from gold mirror cardstock using two of the same oval dies. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut into thin strips and added to the back of the oval frame and then the two die cuts were carefully adhered together. To help align two detailed die cuts with one having foam tape on then, put a little liquid glue on the foam tape and it allows you to move and adjust them until they align perfectly.

Dotliner adhesive was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.
