Hubs brought in the mail today, and there was a packet with new crafty items.  For once I immediately played with the stamps.  These Peonies from Avery Elle are drawn so nicely, and I loved coloring my stamped image.  When I was finished, looking at the card, I really get a 3D effect; hubs came by and said it looked like 4 layers, when I handed him the card, he was surprised. Yes the blossoms and leaves are just one layer...I have to credit that to using Sandy Allnock's Hex Chart.  I never would have put YG63 and  G43 together on the leaves without that chart.

I am entering this card to two challenges, Leslie's Crooked Stampers Sketch Challenge-6  and  Avery Elle's AEHeartU Challenge-Sparkle.  

     Challenge 26 

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Copic Markers, Hex Chart, DCWV glitter paper, Avery Elle's Peonies Stamp set, Embossing Powder, Memento Ink, Versamark ink, black cardstock scraps.
