Modern Peony in Pink

Hi friends! Welcome back - it's another HUMP DAY...and my birthday celebration has NOT ended yet! :D Several girlfriends and I are doing an escape room Friday night, then dinner! THEN my celebration will officially be over! HA!

Meanwhile, if you have followed along with Vanessa for very long, then you probably know about the loss of her brother! He battled some tough demons; Vanessa has kept her shop running, shipped packages non-stop amidst the angst and heartache. She's so strong! I created this card for her and sent her way; sympathy cards are never easy to make!


I stamped the images with Versmark and embossed with white embossing powder then colored with a base layer of Tombow markers and finished it off with Prismacolor Pencils. I did an all over background wash of gray, then added some stronger shadows under the flower and leaves. The sentiment was embossed on vellum and layered on top of other papers.


I die cut 2 stitched squares to accentuate the flower and finished it off with an array of enamel dots and PPP sequins. Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a good week. And if you don't mind, leave a little extra love for Vanessa - we ALL need love!

Hugs!
