Peonies with copics and coloured pencils with a Video!

by Marika

Hello! It’s Marika here and it’s my turn to host Altenew blog today. If you missed out yesterday’s post be sure to check it out, we started a new  Photo Inspiration challenge. The theme is From Places Abroad – France. Hope to see you join in the fun! You can see Therese’s beautiful card with a great video here!

I’m featuring Peony Bouquet stamp set today but I’m only using the smaller flower. Altenew has many flower images that would work for this technique as well. I had some fun with no-line colouring with copics and coloured pencils. The sentiment is from Birthday Greetings set. The woodgrain card stock seen on the right side is also from Altenew and it’ll be one of the wonderful items on our next release this month! Altenew already has Woodgrain Bark Card Stock in sale, which is as lovely as this one.

I also made this into a video tutorial, hopefully you’ll find some time to watch it  and find it helpful. You can watch it here or in HD in Youtube.

Thanks for visiting and I hope your day is amazing! The spring is finally arrived to Finland as well, it is so lovely to go and get off work and still have some daylight left!

Aaaah, another masterpiece. You really must be inspired by the upcoming season. As my peonies are just now budding in the garden, I, too, can’t wait for longer, warmer days.
