Irresistible Peonies

Hello, creative friends!

Today I’m sharing a card that I created with Power Poppy’s stunning Irresistible Peonies digital stamp set.  This one comes with a large, gorgeous peony image in both black line & no line versions, as well as two sentiments.  I also highly recommend checking out the companion clear stamp set, Peony Muse.

I kept the card design very simple, with just a bit of gold cord, sparkly gold enamel dots, and a pop of color in the card stock. 

I printed the no-lines version of the image on X-Press It Blending Card, and colored using the following Copic Markers.

No-lines coloring definitely takes longer; but I simply adore the painterly look of a finished image colored in this style.  It’s so worth every extra minute!

Be sure to swing by the rest of the Bloom Brigade blogs to see their fabulous creations today.

I’m so glad you stopped by, friends!  Can you believe it’s the final day of August???  I know this signifies the end of summer for many of us; but I’m gonna hold onto summer until it’s officially over on September 22nd!  As much as I love fall, I also really love summer, and am just not ready to see it go.

Have a beautiful weekend, friends!

  1. What a gorgeous card, Cindy! I also love the colors, and you are right about no-line coloring…definitely takes a lot longer but is so worth it (if done right). You’ve made this peony shine, and I love the shadows and depth with the pointillism. Stunning finished card with the cord and enamel dots. I love it, and I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Hugs!
