Thanks! Watercolored Peonies

Hello! Happy Valentine's Day! 
I got in some stamping time this afternoon and I'm making my last entries in honor of the challenges at Papertrey Ink for their 11th Anniversary celebration. 
The first card was made with the Peonies on Parade set. I embossed the flowers in white and colored them in using Real Color Zig markers in red, yellow, mid-green and mustard. 

This challenge was to use stripes! I blended ink using a stencil to add stripes to the card base. 

The second card is for the No Stamps challenge to use only dies for your project. I wanted to do something using dies in a different way. I began by using the die to dry emboss on a pastel card stock panel. Next I did cut the butterflies from a card stock scrap, and used it as a stencil, filling in the butterflies with a thin layer of Nuvo Mousse in Pearl. 

The soft shimmer and texture is so pretty! I blended ink to color the die cut sentiment and butterfly used for accents and coated them with a Wink of shimmer as well. 

That wraps it up for me today. I hope that you're having a good day, thank you so much for coming by!
