Peony Thank You

I have another card for Altenew's May inspiration challenge - 'From Places Abroad - Australia', you can check out the details here. For my first card, which you can see here, I basically went with the colours, for this card I tried to get the feel of the mosaic from the inspiration photo as well.

I stamped one of the leaf images from Peony Bouquet with Versamark on watercolour paper and heat embossed with clear EP. I then coloured in the leaves and background with my Peerless watercolours. The shine from the embossing does give it a somewhat mosaic look, although I wasn't able to get a good photo showing that.

I am also entering this card into Simon Says Wednesday challenge - which is anything goes this week.
