Stampendous Jumbo Peony

Have I mentioned how much I love Stampendous stamps?!  😀  I made a video of the making of this card (needs editing before posting!) and had just finished it, then went out to check the mail only to find a package of NEW Stampendous stamps for me to create with and share on social media for them!!!  WOOHOO!!  I began this card by heat-embossing the image in black onto a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, and stamped the flourishes in Versafine Onyx Black permanent ink.  I then “painted” a wash of water over the blossom and using my Gansai Tambi watercolor paints, filled it in with color.

I created the background with more water, shades of blue, a bit of yellow and then added gray around the flower.  My trusty script stamp was inked up with Versafine and stamped lightly over the background.  The obligatory spatters of black paint and a sentiment (Altenew’s Label Love) which I heat-embossed with black and lifted with a bit of foam tape, completed the card!  I trimmed it down and mounted it to a white card base.
