CARD Smelling the Cherry Blossoms
Hi! I decided to try and make an easel card. I found the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers. The Cherry Blossoms Paper was printed on matte photo paper and I glue pen embossed an outline around some of the flowers with a gold embossing powder with glitter in it. It just makes the paper look so rich almost like real washi paper. I coloured the girl and blossoms with alcohol markers ( copic and neopiko) and did some highlighting on hair, etc with white pencil and added a shadow with a cream pencil. I used Waterfall Stickles on the sash and flowers. The butterfly is from MS butterfly stamp combo punch. There are 3 green gems ( that didn't photograph well so you can't see them) keeping the card propped up.
I've attached the sentiments in case you would like to use them :)
Have a great day! ... and don't forget to hop around the Blog Hop and get the chance to win some new designs!
