Brilliant Peony Painted, Stenciled And Beaded

 If you haven't seen the Stamping With Bibiana blog, get on over there.....right after you look and what I did after seeing her beautiful tutorial on using Brilliant Peony using her made gel and beads.  I just happened to have Golden Bead Gel on hand.  She sponged her stencil, but since I took the Online Watercolors for Cardmakers class, I painted with my stencil.  I didn't have the Memory Box mask for the stencil, so none of my backgrounds are shaded using it.  Here is where you can also see her tutorial as a PDF.  Bibiana, you are one talented lady!!  TFS your art!  Below is how I did mine.

CARDFRONT:
  1. Taped Brilliant Peony Stencil to white cardstock, traced around it with soft lead pen.  Painted stencil areas with Twinkling H2O's with well inked Niji waterbrush (the tip needs to have a lot of the color so it doesn't run under the stencil (if it does a little use white out, etc. in those areas.  Applied the *Bead Gel with thinly a thin palette knife (scrubbed stencil immediately after with soap and dish brush). *My already made gel dried on the flower over night.  Fussy cut around the flower and used an eraser to get rid of any showing lines around the edges.  See the flower below:
  2. Mounted on white laid cardstock with 3D pop-dots and then dark olive green cardstock.
  3. The 'hello' was die cut using dark olive green cardstock and mounted on the laid CS.
  4. The circles were created using the Circle Explosion Stencil by painting all first and then applying the gel beads after.  The circles were ready to go after about 3 hours.
  5. Mounted a pearl heart at the bottom right for a hug and a round one in the center of the flower using Glossy Accents.
  6. A piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology paper string was tied as a bow on one of the stems.  (What I noticed was the string is 2 twisted twines.  If you wanted thinner you could easily just divide.)

BACKSIDE AND ENVY: 
  1. Used a piece of white cardstock for the backside.
  2. Used the center of the stencil and some of the leaves for the upper left, traced lightly for the stems so I could watercolor and then erase lines, applied bead gel first to flower and when dry did the leaves.
  3. Used Circles Explosion stencil along the bottom and applied bead gel to some of the circles.
  4. Applied some circles randomly to the envelope as shown.
I am really liking doing just the backside of the card for my note.  I still add my signature along the bottom, but briefer since I sign my note.  I actually have two other cards in process and hope to be back sooner.  I've said that before.  ;-)  I've had company and you know how that goes!!
