The Flower Challenge #32 - Embossing: Heat or Dry

Hello everyone! 

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! 
I'm here today to share my DT card for The Flower Challenge #32 with you! Our theme for May is Embossing! And we have a PRIZE for a lucky winner of this Month's challenge!!! 
Altenew is our generous sponsor this Month and they will give away  Cross Stitch Flower stamp set to one lucky winner of this challenge! Please visit The Flower Challenge blog for more details about the prize! 

I heat embossed the gorgeous peony cut using Peony Dream 3D die by Altenew. 

I cut the elements of the  Peony Dream 3D die from some white cardstock and heat embossed them in yellow, orange and shimmery green shades. The embossing powders are from Stampendous, which I bought when I started cardmaking in 2015. I heat embossed a detail layer and the flower center in gold. I assembled the peony as shown in the picture and set it aside.

To create the background panel I did some watercolor wash in yellow, orange and gold on a Canson Mixed media paper panel. I used Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers in Fresh Lemon and Citrus Burst. After the panel was dry I cut it using a Double Stitched Rectangle die (The Ton) and also dry embossed two leaves onto this panel to add some texture. 

I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and adhered the floral cluster on it. The sentiment from Frosted Garden set was white heat embossed on a strip of dark brown cardstock. I added a few tiny golden sequins on the center of the peony to finish off the card. 

That's it from me!
My amazing team mates and our guest Designer Enna have created some gorgeous inspiration cards for you. So please don't forget to stop by The Flower Challenge blog before you go creating :)!

What a fabulous 3D die cut Peony TaeEun and I adore the yellow and orange and the extra texture you have got from embossing the die really adds that extra something to the background, and the white on brown sentiment looks great too. x

The layered flower is gorgeous with all the heat embossing, TaeEun, and I love how the watercolor wash glows behind it.
