Sending Thanks

Hi there! I got a chance this weekend to ink up a new stamp set I bought from Avery Elle and play along with the AEI♥U Challenge #26–Sparkle

I love the pretty flowers in the Peonies Clear Stamps Set! I started by creating the background for card front with the Tim Holtz Latticework Stencil and Lemon Chiffon Premium Dye Ink Pad. 

I since I can't get enough of my Kuretake Gamsai Tami Watercolor Paints I decided to watercolor the pretty flowers and leaves. I stamped them in white ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. Once the paint had dried I die cut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating Peonies Elle-ments

I used the vase die in the Peonies Elle-ments to cut the shape directly into the card stock. I added acetate  behind the card stock and then dropped in some clear Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to add some sparkle. The sentiment is included in the Peonies Clear Stamps Set, stamped Delicate Gold Ink and embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!
