delightful peony


Rain, glorious rain, so in my craft room to play.

My project today is made using  Memory Box dies called
"Delightful Peony outline and Delightful Peony background"
The background was die cut onto paper I made using Tombow
markers and brushed with water.

 The outline Peony was also "stamped" and gold embossed
and added to the of the corner of my card.
I then inked with Simon Says Stamp pad,
Rose apple, which was used with a water pen.
 A touch of sparkle was added to the flower.



Challenge:
Outside the box.....Magic of Markers
                                                  [at least one Memory Box die]
Simon Wednesday...A bit of sparkle

What a pretty card Annie, love the pop of the bright pink peony and those colour coordinating sequins really do add to the design.. It's been a rainy week in the UK too.. making up for the lack of *April Showers* last month but the gardens are looking delightful. Have a fabulous weekend.. Tracey xx

Wow! Gorgeous ways of using that die cut, Annie! Your background is really lovely with the pretty textures and sparkle. May I ask what font you used for the sentiment? Love it! Beautiful card, my Aussie friend! While you are entering your Winter, we are in the midst of a pre-summer heat wave, breaking temperature records for the month of May, Yesterday it was 37 and at 9PM it was still 35! Yikes! So grateful for the air conditioning. Wishing you a great week-end, Annie! hugs, de
