Instead of going for traditional and natural colours, I went wild and abstract. A rainbow peony, who knew it worked?
While I was on a big colouring streak, I added grey to the background in a reverse backlit kind of way. As in darker around the flower and then fading out towards the edges of the panel.
To finish off the card it needed a sentiment, but I didn’t want something too big that would cover up the flower. So I stamped up ‘You are so worth celebrating’ from Anything-But-Basic Birthday Wishes by MFT Stamps on a slim banner diecut and heat embossed that in Metallic Gold Rich. The sentiment banner was added to the card with foam tape and then trimmed down. With that, the card was done!
But apparently I wasn’t. I got a dark grey envelope out and heat embossed it with the Botan PeonyBotan Peony along the bottom. For this part I used Opaque Bright White embossing powder to make it pop.
That’s it from me for today, but make sure to hop along to see more amazing projects!
Here is the full list of the hop!
