Irresistible Peonies Just Because ~ Power Poppy

Hello, hello, hello!!!  Boy is summer in full swing here with changes all around.  I haven't posted for awhile because my world has been turned upside down, but it's all for the better.  It just takes some readjusting.  3 weeks ago, we got a new family member named Teddy.  He's an itty bitty 6lb Shih Poo, and he is a little ball of precious energy.  And on July 3, I became a Grandma (Nana) for the first time to a very precious little girl named Adalyn Kate.  And, yes, I'm one of those Nana's....she is PERFECT in every way!!!  My son and daughter-in-law are incredible and we are all so very blessed!!

So, now for what you really came here to see...This card has been in the making for 2 weeks...seriously.  I have started, started over, and started over again.  I think I've truly forgotten how to color.  There are parts of this no-line colored card that I'm over the moon happy with (the leaves...I so struggle with leaves), and some, *sigh*...I wish I could do over.  But y'all know how it is with no-line coloring, it takes extra time, so once I was half way in, I was "ALL THE WAY" in.  So, I know I've added too many lines to many of the Peony petals, but hopefully the person I give it to will be able to overlook the unnaturalness of some of them.  YIKES!!

I used the new Power Poppy digital image called Irresistible Peonies and paired it with the sentiment from another new digital image called Azaleas Forever.  The image is colored with Copics, and masked off while I splattered some Champagne Gold, and Black mixed with Champagne Gold, watered down Acrylic paint.  I like the subtle sparkle.
That's it for me...but people, we have a new Power & Spark Challenge being hosted by our dear, dear Julie, and it's a clever one!!  All you have to do, is make a project that was inspired by one of the techniques used in one of the Inspired Me Monday posts.  How fun is that?!?!?!?!
