Modern Peonies in Gray

Hi friends - happy HUMP DAY!! We're halfway to the weekend - yippee!!

Seriously, does Dawn from WPlus9 not have some of the most beautiful flowers for coloring? I took the easy way out and scribbled on Zig Clean Color Brushes in a light gray in the depths and spritzed with water; once dry, I added a darker gray in those same areas and spritzed again. And once again when completely dry, I added a dark, dark gray Prismacolor pencil to the nooks & crannies of the flowers. I also coated each flower twice with clear Wink of Stella - the shimmer is fab, too bad you can't capture it in a photo. #fail

I then die cut the leaves from some MFT black and white designer paper and some polka dot vellum. The black background was made MONTHS ago (yikes - so true) with a Hero Arts stencil and translucent embossing paste. Use ANY stencil for the background, but that shine is so cool IRL! I finally used the piece as my backdrop for the flowers and leaves and finished it off with some gorgeous sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I added a couple layers to the inside and some black/white washi tape. Thanks for popping in; hope you have a GREAT week!
