TE April Release: Watercolored Peonies

Hello! Welcome to Taylored Expressions April 2016 Release! All products that we have been peeking this week are now available in the TE store, HERE! Before you head off to shop, I have two final projects to show you.

My cards today feature Simply Stamped - Peonies. These stamps include 3 layers intended for you to layer each with different shades of ink. I stamped only the detail layer with distress inks, then I used a waterbrush to (attempt to) create the rest of the bloom. It's a fun technique that I will be doing more often (and practicing much more). :)

This one is done with Distress ink colors of Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron. Here's a detail shot:

The next one uses Abandoned Coral and Twisted Citron distress inks (and a different sentiment). This one was inspired by the peonies that I planted last year. They didn't bloom last year, but they just started peeking out of the ground, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this spring!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you'd like to see more projects and new product information, please head over to the TE Blog for a complete blog roll of our participating designers!
