Cherry Blossoms

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 Sad smile


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.

  2. Bev, both these cards are so so stunning hun! You take it to the next level!! LOVE the gold embossing on the black and your colour work over it is so gorgeous! Never would have known unless you'd said, that you weren't happy with the finish or that it was originally brighter. It looks beautiful, like a soft wash of colour. Love the jewel centres too! That card is so rich and lush, I LOVE it! But I love your soft finish with the pastel shades too. The beautiful blooms and gorgeous watercoloured finish. Love the wee clock embellie too. Both utter stunners hun! Hugs, Wends xoxo
