As the heat index rises here in Wisconsin, many of my early summer blooms have come and gone. Among my favorites were the pale pink peonies. I started working more towards a perennial garden a few years back and eventually want a garden that blooms spring through late fall.
I was inspired by the beautiful picture for the July Altenew Inspiration Challenge. Those bright, pink, bold blooms with the spots of yellow... I stamped and masked and stamped the large bloom from Beautiful Day with red ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock, and then masked and stamped in green the leaves from the same set. I watercolored them with Zig Markers, added a few splatters and mounted the panel to a white cardstock base after the painting was dry. I did border the image with some black and white strip images to tie in my sentiment.
