The paper with peonies pattern measures 4′ by 5 1/2″. layer them together to create a fancy card panel.
Stamp one large Peony, one large bud and 2 smaller buds using black archival ink on watercolor paper and die cut them using its coordinating dies. Using a watercolor brush, paint the images with Zig Markers. Also stamp the butterfly image twice with Teal Color Stazon on smooth white cardstock, cut it using its coordinating die and paint it using Zig Markers. Create a 2 layered butterfly embellishment by embossing the butterfly wings from the back.
Cut a circle from a pattern paper and layer it on the Butterfly Kisses circle doily. Also, layer al the stamped images as shown. Add sentiment and randomly add sparkle using Crystal Clear Powder and Adhesive that dries clear.
