Color Hues #5 - Uniko's Pure Florals - Peony

First of the month, so I'm back again with another card, this time for the latest challenge over at Color Hues.

Using these colours.


I used this lovely large bloom from Uniko's Pure Florals - Peony.

Keeping it simple, I just embossed it onto kraft with Versamark and white EP, along with a birthday sentiment. On a panel of MM paper, I repeated the process and coloured the bloom with Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed DI in a watercolour technique. Shadows were added with a Zig watercolour brush pen Brick Beige, which is as near as I could get to the colour of the kraft card.

After fussy cutting, I glued it over the kraft outline and then die cut the whole panel with an MFT scalloped stitched frame die, adding it to a white note card with foam pads.

For more yellow and kraft inspiration check out the rest of the DT here, we'd love to see your take on the colours in our gallery.

The white on the wood reminded me of the white embossing on the kraft.
