I have a slight obsession with cherry blossoms. The real things ofcourse, but stamps/paper/photos also. I act irrationally (ie. hoard, buy compulsively) anything related to this amazing bloom. And with that intro, are two cards (blossom stamps by Flourishes) -
There was a bit of an 'oops' technique with this one. After colouring in with copics, I wanted to add some glitter, but in my mad excitement over the blossom, I accidentally sprinkled embossing powder instead (and rather thickly). So I decided to heat emboss, and then add glitter. The result is dewy slightly dimensional glitter.
The card is for a dear friend who's going through some major life changes and moving across the country to figure it all out.
The next I decided to make the blossoms more of a background. The copics I used for these are T1 and E50, and here I used glossy accents for a dewy look.
This reminds me of that 'botanical collage' technique Betsy Veldman showed once (tried to find link but was not successful).
I think either would make a great mother's day card too.
