The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Peony Garden Suite

Some images are timeless and endure through the changes of years and styles. The Peony Garden Suite is a perfect example of timeless elegance. From simple stamping to over-the-top, this suite covers all the bases. Use traditional colors, stamping, and die-cutting to create a peony that looks like it came right out of grandma’s garden or create a simple modern, monochrome look with the flower stamped in a neutral color on Whisper White. I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this suite for many occasions.

This lovely tutorial includes two ways to watercolor and uses the Peony Dies to build a gorgeous 3-D flower. Let’s make something beautiful!

Create depth and shading in watercoloring by painting on a light wash layer and then adding light layers of color to the area you want darker. Allow the paper to dry a bit between layers so it can absorb more ink, but not completely to avoid harsh lines.
