Majestic Blooms

The Card Concept's challenge is this dreamy photo:

I  focused on the peony in the teacup, along with the metallic accents.

Stamped the die cuts with fine silver embossing powder, then
stamped the blooms, first on PTI's Sweet Blush card stock, then onto
Berry Sorbet.
there are 3 steps to this bloom, 4 if you count the center, and I used
my misti.
Did the same with the leaves, but watercolored them with a mix of green.
Background is a watercolored blend with Firework's Summer Sky droplets.
(They're iridescent in RL)
PTI's Cover Plate: Delightful frame is a favorite!
Altenew: Sentiment & blooms from Majestic Bloom
I'm calling it a mix of Classy Elegant + Mixed Media (Watercolors & Emboss)

Play along for another couple of days, here,
and be sure to check out the inspiration from the uber talented designers!

Thank you for visiting!
We reached a 104 today, perfect excuse to stay indoors and craft!

  3. Beautiful, beautiful card Nancy! I bought this stamp set too, but have not had a chance to play with it I really have some awesome inspiration to get it out and play! Am I understanding your notes correctly that you embossed first and then stamped your colors after embossing? Didn't the raised part of the embossing make the stamping uneven to place your color (I hope that makes sense?)? Either way, it's a fabulous card!! :0)
