Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #311
I am eagerly preparing for my trip to Japan. Leaving tomorrow, and hoping there will be a few cherry blossoms left to view in Northern Honshu! The stamp set is retired CTMH , 'Fabulous You,' and I tried some water coloring on the image using Distress Oxides. I stamped the diamond pattern from the set several times using CTMH Champagne ink. I stamped the image twice again, colored some of the flower images, fussy cut them and popped them up with a bit of foam tape. I also added some highlights on the flowers with a black and white gel pens.
This is a wonderful sketch - hop on over to AHSC and play along. If you need a little more inspiration, my card and the rest of the Design Team will post there on Wednesday.
I apologize for the poor color...I seem to have lost my regular camera, and this was a phone photo...It is a soft, muted card. Very peaceful. The close up shows the colors a bit better.
