Burgandy Peonies Valentine

Hi Blog Friends!

Another post for the 
30 Day Coloring Challenge
Found here:
Are you tired of the Valentine's yet? LOL
I have enjoyed making them!
It's never out of style to tell the one's you love, "I love you!" ;)

I'll also be entering my card in the
SSS- Wednesday Challenge Blog.
The challenge:
It Must Be Love
Found here:

So, I am using Studio Katia today.
I wanted to use their Together We Bloom Stamp & Die Set.
First, I looked up the colors of peonies....
Look at ALL of the colors peonies come in:
Isn't that amazing?
So, I chose the burgundy peony for my Valentine's!
Take a look:
 Stamping them on Strathmore 140lb. Water Color Paper in Versa Mark & sprinkling on 
Wow-Perissa-WL16R Embossing Powder & heat setting it.
I water colored the images with Kuretake Water Colors & my Silver Blk. Velvet Brushes &
 my FC- Click-N-Go Pot.
Die cut them all out & set them aside.

I used Neenah- Metallic Card Stock for shimmer, making a card base & a card front. 
For the card front I used Studio Katia- Dotted Elongated Hexagons Dies,  (I thought these were the most interesting shaped dies, the minute I saw them on Kathy's blog during one of her coloring challenges a few years back), & attached acetate from packaging for a shaker card. 
I also edged this piece with Versa Mark & the same embossing powder....
I wanted some flowers inside & out.
The front sentiment is from Tweety Jill- Vintage Valentines & the little hearts inside are from the same Studio Katia set- Together We Bloom.
I added 28 Lilac Lane Sequines & Nuvo Glitter Drops- Golden Sunset. 

Look at the dimension the Scotch Perm. Mounting Tape gave to these lovely flowers.
The inside:
I  made enough flowers to add some to the inside too!
And the sentiment is from Gina K- Rose Bouquet.

I LOVE Studio Katia's modern looking dies & lovely flowers!
Do you?

Happy Valentine's Everyone!
