Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge

Today, I have a card to share for the Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge:


Isn't it pretty!
I love the mix of soft peach and pink colours in the top left hand photo
and I was inspired by the photo of the peonies in the cup at the bottom.


I started by watercoloring my background using a paint brush, some water 
and some harvest gold and bright buttercup ink pressed onto my acrylic block.
To created my "cup", I diecut part of a PTI Mat Stack 5 die, trimmed off the rounded
end and used my scor-pal to impress the line.
I diecut my Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea flowers and stamped them
with the coordinating stamp in versamark and heat embossed them in gold.


I coloured them in using a paint brush, some water 
and some Altnew perfect peach, frosted pink and cotton candy ink 
pressed onto my acrylic block.
I used PTI bright buttercup for the centres.
I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Birthday) in versafine onyx black.

Thanks for looking!
