Pretty Peonies...

 

Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

It's time for another challenge at In The Pink - and this time our theme is 

BIRTHDAY

I bought this Mama Elephant Pretty Peonies stamp set recently, so decided to use that for my card - peonies are one of my favourite flowers.  I stamped on Bristol Smooth card with Versamark, then embossed with white embossing powder.  I then coloured with my (little used) Zig Clean Colour Markers.  I was reasonably happy with how it turned out...  but need to do more practice with these pens I think.  Also, I used some Tonic Nuvo Jewel Drops on the peonies to look like dew drops - but unfortunately, they affected the colour of the pink underneath them.  Eeeek!  Ah well... the best laid plans of mice and men....  



Card Info:
Image - Mama Elephant Pretty Peonies
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Die - MFT Scalloped Frames
Colouring - 
Zig Clean Colour Markers in various pinks and greens
Sequins


As my photos above look more blue-ish than the colours do in real life, I decided to try for a different photograph on a different day...  and this is what happened.  It was sunny when I took the photo below, and it was a cool day with no sun on the photos above.  Just shows you how the weather can make a difference to the lighting on your photo, doesn't it?
