Welcome! My peony bush is blooming now--love those blooms! (The ants, not so much. . .) Today I chose a peony stamp as my focal image from JustRite's new Seeds of Summer set. I took a few pictures as I worked.
These are the Copic markers that I used on my peony bloom, though I went back and added a little more BV01 in some shadow areas a little later.
Here are the Copic markers that I used in the greenery. The Blue-Violets were used in shadow areas, and the YG93 was used to mute some lighter parts of shadow areas.
For the background, I started by stamping the seed packet in Kraft ink, then cutting and embossing with a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles die template. I left the die in place to use as an airbrushing mask. I used YR23 and Bo1 to airbrush the background, keeping the yellow on the sunny side of my peonies and the blue on the shadow side.
This is the entire Seeds of Summer set--I've got to try those petunias next!
The pink background is stamped with JustRite's Heart Scroll background stamp on Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush cardstock with Colorbox Rouge chalk ink. A bit of stitching and distress ink, and I was finished. I will include a complete supply list at the bottom of the post. Would you like to see some beautiful project with Seeds of Summer?
