Watercolored Peony with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

I've been loving my Zig markers and have been using it so much lately! Today once again I'm sharing a beautiful emboss resist watercolored peony from Peaceful Peonies by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I used a color I don't usually use but it sure makes you think of Summer! I'm also using a couple of stunning papers from Paper Temptress today!


I do not use watercolor paper to color since I am unable to find it where I live, but I use a paper that does not absorb the water so much and I use little water and that does the trick. I'm guessing the paper (called Opalina), is very compressed or has a thin coating that makes it work well with watercolors. I used yellow, hot pink and a peachy pink to color the flowers and two tones of green for the leaves.


To make the flower look even fuller I added leaf die cuts in olive green and also some ferns in Gold Metallic Vellum. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on heavyweight vellum #48 in gold sparkle embossing powder which actually has glitter in it and gives the sentiment a lot of texture.

I love how the tangerine looks against that white textured background. The orange card base ties the elements on the card perfectly and makes the green from the leaves pop.

Thanks so much for visiting today. For more inspiration please make sure to subscribe to this and also to SNSS blog!
