Today's card is CASE'd from Emma Goddard. I really didn't change anything from her card, because it was perfect! I though about changing up the colour of the peony, but in the end decided to keep it Calypso Coral because I like how it pops against the neutrals on the rest of the card..
The peony is made by doing an ombré watercolour wash on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and once it's dry cutting out the four petal pieces on different parts of the piece to get variegated colour. It's hard to see in my picture, but Emma recommended cutting two of the base/largest petal pieces and stacking them with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to give even more dimension to the bloom. The Sahara Sand flower centre is coated with Wink of Stella, which the camera managed to pick up!
The background is made by stamping images from Prized Peony in Versamark on Sahara Sand and heat setting with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. The sentiment is from the same set and the scalloped edge is cut with another Peony die. A double bow of Linen Twine and a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems finishes it off.
