FS197 - Peonies and Jellybeans

Hi everyone! I get the pleasure again of bringing you this week's prestigious Featured Stamper Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers because Miss Beth is still on vacation overseas :)

This week's challenge is FS197 - Jumpin' Jellybeans! and we are featuring Jellybean74! Angela's (Jellybean74 at SCS) gallery is chalked full of pastel, yummy goodness just like the sweet candy so let's start that sugar high and make her feel special!

This is the card that I chose to CASE and as per the Featured Stamper Challenge rules, I had to change 2 or more things on the card. I kept the same layout, colour combo and image type but changed out the green matting for black, added a double bow and some dry embossing and stitching.

The image has been water coloured with my tombow markers and a waterbrush and the clouds were sponged in. As a finishing touch I added some prisma colour and gamsol grass (here is a video tutorial on how to do this from Paula Williamson). I used as many of the same designer papers that I had to match Angela's card and ended up embossing them with my cuttlebug. I didn't have the exact same image that she used so I went with the next best choice of Peony Bittybloom from Stamping Bella.

Congratulations Angela and thanks for have such a large gallery full of eye candy to choose from!
