Firstly I have to mention that the snow fibre paper I used yesterday is a new product as Ive had loads of people asking about it on here and Facebook. It will be available early next week and I will mention as soon as it comes out!
back to today and I thought you might like to see another different colour for me with some stamping and some colouring. I made this card again on a demo day as a lady asked what to do with the cherry blossom stamps and she wanted an interesting yet simple card. This is what I came up with.
To balance the card I shaded around the aperture on the front of the card using the dusty concord, To make the bow I took a length of white seam binding and ran the dusty concord ink, again using a smoothie as this makes it so easy, along the ribbon so that it was the exact same shade as the rest of the card.
For the flower I cut 2 of the perfect peony open petal dies and again shaded them with the distress ink before shaping them and adding a white 5mm pearl in the centre. I placed the flower in the middle of the bow, to hide the knot, and added the whole piece to the bottom left of the aperture on the front.
Its a little purple which I admit is an unusual colour for cherry blossom however I feel it works and they could be a scary of any flowers!
