Happy Birthday- Shabby Chic Autumn Peonies
This card was created for the Power Poppy August Power & Spark "Shabby & Chic" Challenge along with the FabFri71 Color Challenge and Joanne's PP259 Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players.
Hopefully you will have a chance to visit the above mentioned challenge sites- there are so many wonderful Design Teams samples and entries!
In an effort to spend more time creating, I will not list the step by step details of this card- it is fairly easy to create (but a bit time consuming :-))
This card utilizes watercolor techniques with Stampin’ Write markers (scribbled onto a craft mat or acrylic block and painted with a water brush) for the blossoms, direct marker for the leaves, shadow from a "goof" on the focal image circle (this step could be omitted- lol!), fussy-cutting for the focal image, Banners created with punches and dry embossing, a backgground stamp, distressing for the edges and a stitched circle die along with Pearls to finish off the card.
