Another beautiful floral from Marcella Hawley, this peony wreath is full of coloring loving blooms!
Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. I have several in colors from light pink to burgundy that I support each year and wait patiently for those jumbo blooms to open up. I just wish they lasted longer! They make a re-blooming lilac now…so maybe it’s just a matter of time!
I began by stamping my image on watercolor paper and then painting it with various re-inkers and a water color brush. I added a small amount of Lemon Flower Soft to the centers which I then dabbed with a YR23 Copic marker to tone down a bit. I used a Grand Circle die to cut out the image and a Classic Circles large die for the sentiment, both from Spellbinders. I sponged around the image and sentiment with the dies in place and I attempted to stitch around the image. I say attempted because it’s not as straight as it should have been. I am still getting used to the pedal on my new Singer! I tend to zoom away, lol!
All of the patterned paper is from MME A Beautiful Life. I also used some May Arts Silk Ribbon and a butterfly charm from Pink Paislee.
