Here is my card:
(sorry the lighting wasn't great)
Materials: A5 white cardstock; Dot Background stamp, Cherry Blossoms Large stamp, Mini Messages -Get Well Soon (all from Kaszazz); Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks - Ice Blue, Wisteria, Olive Pastel and Creamy Brown; Ancient Page - Stone Gray; Buttons and Brads from stash (unknown); Glossy Accents; Rainbow fine glitter; White 1/2" Grosgrain ribbon; Magic Mount; EK Success corner rounder.
I kept this one pretty simple, and my inspiration was taken from the lovely Jennifer McGuire. I love how her cards are simple and pretty.
Would you like to know how I coloured the cherry blossoms? Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink. I smudged some of the ink onto my craft mat and used my aquapainter (water filled pen with a brush tip) to blend it up a bit. I then started with the darker areas and worked to the lighter areas (as it got more watery). It wasn't the easiest technique - the ink wasn't the most predictable (sometimes it would be too dark and seep into one spot and others it just wouldn't seem to grab). Just another hair-brained idea I came up with.
I am totally in love with the dot background stamp. Can you tell?
Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
