Peonies For You

I'm happy to have a project for you today and a special one for tomorrow. I am thrilled to see sunshine out my window as I write this afternoon post. It's been a crazy couple of weeks to say the least. I've tried several ways to put my mind at rest but it's been hard settling down to stamp. Last night I pulled out my best therapy - markers inks and stamps to do some no-line coloring! 

I gave Tombow markers a try for coloring using a paintbrush and water to spread the inks onto Fabriano water color paper. Being a rarely used coloring medium for me, some of those markers were dry then I substituted Distress Markers. Trying something new took lots of concentration and it was good for me to focus for an evening. 

Fussy cutting the flowers, I used foam tape to add them to a panel inked with Antique Linen, Lucky Clover and Chipped Sapphire DOX inks. I love the way these flowers stand out against the dark panel. Splattered with white paint, bedecked with a few jewels and it is done. 

Thanks so much for coming to my blog today. Writing helps me too, and I think reaching out is good for all of us! Sending hugs and well wishes to you all.
