WPlus9 | Birthday Wishes with Modern Peonies & May 2017 Products

Hello friends! Every floral stamp set holds a number of creative possibilities and Modern Peonies stamp set from WPlus9 is no exception. One can stamp and die-cut flowers to arrange them into a gorgeous floral cluster or realistic looking bouquet; stamp, mask off and stamp some more to create a stunning one layer floral arrangement; combine all images or use single flower to create unique stamped patterns. I’m linking to all supplies I am using at the end of this post.

CARD DETAILS

I decided to not do the obvious today, but rather take just one image from the Modern Peonies stamp set and use it to stamp a gorgeous, somewhat random, pattern. I picked the smallest flower, a flower bud, but one can also use large and medium sized flower to create similar looking patterns.

I had Daniel Smith watercolors sitting on my desk when I was deciding whether I wanted to Copic-color these or watercolor, so I went with the latter.

After stamping images in VersaFine Onyx Black ink (I love to use this ink for watercolor) on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper I used a medium sized water brush and quickly colored my stamped images and the space inbetween. I used Daniel Smith 238 Dot Chart and picked Quinacridone Pink, Green Gold, Olive Green and Cobalt Teal Blue colors (you can see this chart in action on video in one of my previous posts).

Later I came in with a detailed brush and intensified the color in several sections on each of my images.

I intentionally didn’t leave any room on my background for a sentiment as I knew I wanted it stamped on a separate panel and foam mounted onto the card. I used same black ink and added a strip of gold glitter tape for some interest.

Lastly, after adhering my stamped and watercolored panel onto an A2 top folding card base, I added clear dots using Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew.

    1. Using the peony bud stamp to create this background is a great idea. This background with a sentiment and a bit of embellishment. . .nothing more is needed. Thanks for sharing a way to create a lovely card in a pinch.
