I recently bought this gorgeous "Peonies On Parade" stamp set from Papertrey Ink, after searching the hundreds of pretty floral stamps available right now from so many different companies.  It was hard to choose, but I couldn't stop thinking about watercoloring this set, so I made it mine!

I stamped the images onto watercolor paper and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then painted them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, water, and a paintbrush.  I followed a color challenge, which fit perfectly with what I had in mind for these stamps.

I cut out the images arranged them over a die-cut paper panel, inlaid with a lighter patterned paper, both designs also from Papertrey Ink.  I added a stamped sentiment from Altenew's "Meadow Flower" set, and a few silvery sequins to finish it off.  It was hard to capture the true brightness of this card in photos, but it's super cheerful and lovely in real life!

I'm linking up to these fun challenges:

{PAPERTREY INK: Make It Monday} - Pattern Behind Die Cut Window

Thanks for visiting!

Absolutely beautiful! Love the use of the white embossing powder instead of the traditional black. It really pops!
