Flower Challenge - Trio of Peonies

I have found a new challenge this week - The Flower Challenge, which is brand new this month. Their theme for their first challenge is "Anything Goes with Floral".

So I had a look in my already coloured box and found the trio of peonies from Power Poppy Stamps.
I totally adore the drawings of Marcella and the sentiments.

Unfortunately I can not for the life of me find where I have written down the Copics Pens I used to colour these beautiful peonies, but after colouring the sentiment with V01 and V04, I think it is the same, plus one other from the V range. I think I have used Y11 and Y15 in the centre. Then the leaves are probably YG67, YG63 and maybe YG06??
(If I find the correct colours I will update this post, but more likely I will colour this stamp again and then write down the correct colours!)

I have digitally stamped on to X-Press It card and then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the images (not a fussy cutting fan!)

Here is a close up of the colouring:

I have adhered it to a white square card from Envelope Solutions, along with the coloured sentiment:

I also coloured a single peony and adhered it to the inside of the card:

This card could also be used as a Get Well card, so I will also enter this card into the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.

If I have time I may do another card for this challenge.

Thanks for looking!


  1. The way you have coloured the peonies is beautiful, it doesn't matter if you don't know the colours :). Gorgeous shading and I love the soft purple palette. Thank you for joining us at The Flower Challenge, we hope to see you again soon, Lisa DT

  2. Lou, I love this set from Power Poppy and you colored this blooms beautifully. Peonies come in this soft shade of lilac, I've seen them on magazines, they are amazing flowers.
    Love the way you fussy cut the image with that pretty blue-green background.
    Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE.
