Peonies

Two cards today, experimenting with inks and a 3D embossing folder.

The embossing folder is Lisa Horton's 'Blooming Peony' 3D e/f.  I used makeup brushes to apply 'Kitsch Flamingo' lightly over the peonies, trying hard not to ink the non raised up parts.  The centres were coloured with a pale yellow Promarker.  The sentiment is a stamp from Lisa Horton's box magazine, stamped in Versafine Clair 'Morning Mist'. The embossed card was layered on a pale green mat.

For my second card I used a brighter pink Distress Ink pad, 'Picked Raspberry' and layered the embossed card on a bright pink mat. 

I am joining in the following challenges:
