Happy Birthday- Shabby Chic Autumn Peonies



Hi Stampers! 


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.

Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Bella Toile (retired SU! background),  Peonies  & Tulips (Power Poppy)

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe; Stampin’ Write Markers- Blackberry Bliss, Delightful Dijon, Old 
Olive, Tangelo Twist, Tip Top Taupe; Faber-Castell® White Gel Pen

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe; retired Moonlight Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Accessories: Big Shot™, Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, MFT Stitched Circle Die, Punches- Banner Triple, Hexagon, Distressing Tool, 3/8” Stitched Blackberry Bliss Satin Ribbon, Pearls

If you have any questions, please let me know in the comment section... I truly appreciate your visits and comments- they are such an encouragement to me :-)


Have a wonderful day- hugs and God Bless!

I've never seen these colors put together as creatively and as beautifully as you've done. Sometime in the future, I plan on giving this combination a try. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Gorgeous as always! Great coloring and it's very eclectic and chic looking while being vintage at the same time. I wouldn't have seen these colors as vintage but it works! Thanks for playing at Fab Friday!

Oh my, Julie! The way you've incorporated the colors into your design is amazing. I never would have been inspired to make flowers from them but you've rocked it! The touch of Blackberry Bliss is just gorgeous and all the layers and grunge are just shabbilicious! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!
