Hero Arts Peony with a Crazy Color Combo

Hi you guys!

I know, I've been... not here. This summer has been wild and wooly (and not in a "I've been living at the beach" kind of way) and I have not had as much time to create as I would like. Still, I am grateful for the time that I do get and this past weekend I got to do some really fun things so I can't wait to catch you up on that (amazing classes with Dina Wakley on gelli printing and creating transparent layers in the media journal-it was epic!). 

For today I've got a card to share. I colored this flower last month when I was participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I finally had time to turn it into a card and here it is...

The flower is colored with Copic Markers in the following colors: BV00, B02, B41, BG01, V00, RV23, YR61. The leaves are colored with YG41, BG10 and BG23.

After coloring and die cutting my flower and leaves out I layered them on top of some gorgeous pearlescent paper from Paper Garden that I die cut with the Papel Picado Confetti die (Hero Arts). A while back Paper Garden sent me some gorgeous paper to sample and this paper is truly beautiful! After that I heat embossed my sentiment in white on black cardstock and adhered everything with foam adhesive.

I added a few sequins to finish the card off and called it good. Ok, that is it for today! I'm going to take some pictures of what we did in Dina Wakley's classes this past weekend and I will be back soon to share it all.

Have an awesome day!
