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 colours, 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 colour on Whisper White. I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this suite for many occasions.
Today I sent out my newsletter with a tutorial for this lovely card, which includes two ways to watercolour and uses the Peony Dies to build a gorgeous 3-D flower.

- Create depth and shading in watercoloring by painting on a light wash layer and then adding light layers of colour 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.
