Purple Peonies Thank You

Once again I pulled out a stamp set that haven’t used much, but is really lovely, Gina K. Designs Wrapped in Love.

This time I decided not to use embossing powder but to stamp it with the standard black Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

I colored the image with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers but the violet color didn’t want to move much with my waterbrush pen, so I pulled out a light purple and colored it with the two colors.

Once coloring was completed I decided to use a wonky rectangle to cut the image before placing it on a side folding A2 cardbase. Sticky back foam was added to the back of the panel for dimension. It also give a solid surface to stamp the sentiment, which was stamped with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink. As a final embellishment I pulled out some lilac sequins and scattered them around the image.
