Peonies and Faux Handmade Paper

I fell in love with this stamp, Peony Square by Stampendous, the minute I saw stampers on SCS using it. I stamped mine with Encore Copper Ink on Very Vanilla Stampin' Up cardstock and embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. It was painted with Twinkling H2O's. The peonies were highlighted with Ranger Stickles Copper glitter glue. The Purple/Pink flowers were highlighted in the center with Provo Craft Shimmerz glue (it resembles the sparkle of opals when dry), and Ranger Yellow Stickles glitter glue around the opal center. Shimmerz takes longer to dry than regular glitter glue, but it is well worth the wait.

The background is Faux Handmade Paper from the current issue of Technique Junkie Newsletter. I had no idea it would be so much fun. The ribbon is from Michael's $1 bin. The Copper Charm is from AC Moore in their jewelry findings area. It was accented with Ranger Stickles Copper glitter glue. Three more dots of the glue were added to the bottom right side of the card front. The words are by Inkadinkadoo and were stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy.
Thanks so much for stopping by "the blog" to look.
