Playing along with The Card Concept, where the inspiration is
rich texture and this photo:
Love peonies, at least I think they're peonies, might
be roses. Have tried to grow them, but we get hot
summers, and cold winters, not a peony's favorite seasons!
The peonies are from PTI: Peonies On Parade, stamps and dies,
watercolored with my Derwent Watercolor Pencils, and
Gansai Tambi watercolors.
The textured bg was created with a woodblock rubber stamp
by Hero Arts called Hydrangeas.
The flowers and leaves were stamped with PTI's Lavender Moon,
Winter Wisteria and Amethyst Allure.
Bottom of the stamp with Hero Arts Wet Cement.
I flicked some paint onto the stamped piece before adding my die cuts.
Sentiment from PTI's Keep It Simple: Easter.
More rich texture with the bottom panel of Echo Park designer paper,
and some washi tape.
Irridescent sequins from Neat & Tangled.
Going with clean and layered, with some mixed media (watercolors)
