Thoughtful Peony

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another challenge from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is Narelle Farrugia.

I was in the mood to do some coloring so got out a NBUS stamp set and my Copics and Prismacolors and came up with this card.

For the background, I blended some SSS inks onto a piece of Bristol Smooth and then flicked on some white acrylic paint.  Once it was dry, I die-cut it with a Stitched Mod Square Stax die.  A white-embossed sentiment and a black and white striped strip of patterned paper and the card was done.

Thanks for visiting!  The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous cards, so head on over and check them out.

I'm linking this up to the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More.
