Peony Wishes Birthday Card

I recently saw the Gina K. Designs Peony Wishes stamp set and immediately went and purchased it.  It recently arrived and I decided to watercolor the image on Canson XL Cold Press 140# Watercolor Paper.  It was stamped with VersaMark Onyx Black In, and heat embossed with Hero Arts Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder using the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

Winsor & Newton Artist Grade Watercolor Pans in Chinese White, Permanent Rose, Alizarin Crimson, Winsor Red, Winsor Violet, and Winsor Orange were used to color the image.  Once it was dry Derwent Inktense Pencils 500 Chili Red, 520 Carmine Pink, 740 Mauve, 1510 Beech Green were used to add shadows to the image and blended out with a Dove Blending Pen.

The watercolored panel was then die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangle.  A slightly larger rectangle was cut with a guillotine paper cutter out of Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock and adhered to the back of the watercolored panel with Sookwang Be Creative Tape.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Birthday Messages and was stamped with VersaMark Ink on a scrap of black cardstock and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  It was adhered to the bottom of the focal image using 3M ½” Foam Tape.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image panel was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  As a final embellishment Pretty Pink Posh Sugar Plum Mix and Sweetheart Mix, and Neat & Tangled Pink Lemonade were adhered with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
