It’s new release time at Whimsy Stamps, and once again there’s some delectable new goodies in this release including another amazing floral background stamp – Cherry Blossom Background. I’ve used it two ways, the first I watercoloured in soft pastel colours, the second I coloured with prismacolor pencils onto black cardstock.
I used my Tambi Gansai watercolours after heat embossing with rose gold embossing powder. I added some foamiran flowers – the large one I made using my Hellebore Flower Die Set, the cherry blossom I made using the medium die from my Peony Flower Die Set and finished it off with a sentiment from the Everyday Banner Sentiments , except I inverted it in photoshop to give the negative. The black background was too heavy for this pastel card.
The second card I’m not too sure about. See, I loved the soft pink on the black background with the gold embossing, but then I got a not so genius idea to cover the flowers with glossy accents to give a faux cloisonné look and well, the glossy accents seemed to drain the colour right out of the flowers. It looks much better in real life, the photo not so much
I kept this one super simple – the black was enough drama for me and totally rocked my beige world haha. I finished off the card with a rhinestone in the centre of each flower with a simple greeting. I die cut the word from the Word Die Set – Smiles, Happy and Celebrate 4 times and glued together then once dry I coated in glossy accents for some shine.
I’ll be back later in the week with another card featuring new Whimsy products.
