Peony Gardens and Blends

Welcome to another Blog post on this chilly but beautiful Saturday Morning.

Peony Gardens and Blends

Approximately two weeks ago I showed you a card using the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper where I just coloured the back ground of the paper. I was enjoying the relaxation of just colouring in that I did another, this time adding more colours. It has sat on my desk for a few days and last night I finally made it into a card.

The Blends are wonderful for colouring in as they don’t leave that line on your work that markers can leave.

The colours I have used are…

The Measurements I used are…

  • Card Base, Basic Black – 10.5 x 29.8cm, scored 14.9cm
  • Mat, DSP – 14.47 x 10cm
  • Mat, Basic Black – 8 x 12.4cm
  • Card Front, DSP – 10 x 15cm and trimmed down to 7.7 x 12.1cm

Inside the card I added a sheet of Whisper White Cardstock 10 x 14.4cm, and added a strip of DSP that I had trimmed off.

Here’s a Tip….

They are sometimes a little forgotten but use the Black Combo pack of Dimensionals. I used the mini ones under my sentiment and the larger ones under the Basic Back Mat. Great to have when using darker colours in your cardstock. Always worth while having a pack handy.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my Blog. I hope you have enjoyed my projects & that you’re inspired to get crafty!
