Birthday Peonies


PTI's June Blog Hop features this inspiration:

Ombre delight, right?

So many directions to go in, I went the ombre of course,
the transparency, (watercolors), and the sweet blooms with their 
 pink/coral hue.


Sponge inked and splattered background, (Aqua Mist & Spring Rain)
Peonies On Parade, 1st white embossed, then watercolored 
with Kuretake pan colors.
Love to 'ombre' each petal on the flowers!
Ways to Say Birthday die cut from glitter card stock.
Panel backed with foam dots and adhered to Ombre Stripes Pattern Paper.
So much inspiration on these hops, can't wait to see everyone's take today!


I'm off to church, and home soon to visit and comment!
