Peaceful Peonies and watercolors

Hello everyone! I really love flower stamps and I just can't get enough of them, so this new set was great for my stash!

I started with a watercolor background for this card. I used watercolor paper and blended orange, red and purple colors to create the background. I used a stamp press to stamp the peony, so I could capture all the details on the rough paper. I doubted for a long while if I should color the stamp but I decided that I would just let the background do the work and keep the image simple. I stamped two little butterflies and the message and all that I had to do was to find a matching background and card to finish this project. I love the encouraging sentiments from the Peaceful Peonies set!

For this card I used 'Peaceful Peonies' and 'Floral Greetings'.
Have a nice day!

Great design, & I love the background! A good idea not to color the flower, too. Tfs! ~ Andrea
