Feeling Blue Tree Peonies ~ Power Poppy

Alright...I played with my Minc Machine again.  I can't help myself sometimes.  It's just so much fun and has such striking results.  It works so beautifully with Marcella's elegantly detailed images.

I wanted to participate in Julie's Hues to Use challenge this week and it's all about blues.  So, I created my background using Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Ink Oxides.  I then created a collage of peonies using Power Poppy's Digital Tree Peonies and Photoshop.  I printed it out, photo copied it, and then ran it through the Minc Machine with White foil.  I stamped a sentiment, from the Burst of Kindness Power Poppy set, onto white cardstock and diecut it using a Stitched Fishtail Flag by Die-namics.

I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkly highlights, that you can see better in the enlarged photo below, and lastly, added some "water droplets" by squirting different sizes of Crystal Clear Glass Effect Gel (Viva), and Black Perlent-Pen (Viva) onto my craft mat and letting them dry;  that way I could control my sizes.  I then adhered them with Glossy Accents.

That about sums up my card for today.  Be sure to join in for our Hues to Use could be one of our guest stars of this column in one of the upcoming weeks.
