Hello everyone! I am very excited to be joining the talented Studio Katia Design Team! What an honour! I love dainty, little notecards and have a couple of examples featuring the gorgeous Peony Trimmings Stamp Set and Mini Slimline Set 1. Peony Trimmings comes with two images and lots of sentiments. I used a different image on each card but needed smaller sentiments to incorporate on these mini slimlines. Mini Sending Greetings worked perfectly!
Both peony images were stamped using a grey ink on cream card stock.
The images were coloured with Faber Castell Coloured Pencils. For the peonies, Red Violet, Pink Madder Lake and White were used. The flower centres were coloured with Cadmium Yellow. The leaves were done up in Olive Green, Earth Green Yellowish and Light Green.
Working one petal at a time, the first layer of colour was applied in small, light circular motions starting with the darkest tone in the shadow areas and then moving to the lighter colours for the highlights. The colour was applied about three times overlapping them for a smooth blend. To add texture at the end, the darkest tone was applied starting at the base of the petal in flicking motions.
The peony images were fussy cut, adhered to black card stock and fussy cut again.
The two card fronts were created with Mini Slimline Set 1 . The scalloped die was used to cut both cream and black card stock. The scalloped edges were masked and stencilled with Brush Stroke Waves Stencil using Versamark ink and embossed in gold. The scalloped edges on the black card front were also embossed.
The panels were adhered to black card bases measuring 3" by 6".
The cards were embellished Cafe Au Lait Pearls .
