Throwback Thursday: Cover Plate: Peony...

Happy Thursday!  I'm playing along with this week's Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday post.  This week's featured product is the Cover Plate: Peony die (product link below!). 

This gorgeous die is so pretty when it's cut, but how about embossing with it? I thought it would be fun to emboss it onto watercolor paper, then use the embossed lines as a guide for watercoloring that beautiful peony.  I ran it through my Big Shot with the embossing mats and appropriate embossing sandwich.

Then I used my new Gansai Tambi watercolors to bring it to life.

One of my goals for 2018 is to work on my watercoloring skills...hopefully a little something every day, or nearly every day.  This was today's practice.  I added a pretty diecut sentiment, which was cut using the Scripted dies, cut from the same watercolor paper so it would match nicely.
