I used paper tole to make the peonies on this card panel come alive.
I used a wonderful image from my collection of free - use clip-art from Dover Designs.
I cut out three layers for each blossom and trimmed off a few petals with each successive layer so the center of the flower is 3D. When adding additional layers, I used my fine tweezers to curl each petal. The mod podge really gives the petals a 3D effect. I painted on several layers, perhaps 4, and allowed each coat to dry in between.
Once the Mod Podge was totally dry, I embellished with micro beads, gold cord, and a bee that is actually a bead.
