I started by using a sponge dauber and some Goosebumps to 'ink' up the beautiful blossom stamp by Memory Box (actually it's called 'Birch Branch Print" - but I see blossom!) and stamped it in the corner or a piece of water colour paper. I then left if overnight to dry. Then, I brushed water over the whole sheet and then applied Hot Cinnamon Twinkling H2O's starting in the top right corner. I then left it to dry overnight, and then heat embossed the Amuse cardinal in white. I then mounted it onto A|S card. I think it's really Christmassy, but with a change in image it would be beautiful for spring too.
In this second card i have for you today, I took a slightly different approach - I took a piece of water colour paper and heat embossed the trees (Memory Box) and moon (Amuse) in white, adding a line beneath the trees in a glaze pen, which took the embossing powder reasonably well - I used to have a pen that dispensed something like versamark to add details like that, but it appears to have vanished - if anyone knows where I could get one, please let me know - thanks. Anyway, back to the card, I then applied a wash of blue and purple pearlescent paint to the sky. At this point the bottom layer was far to grey, so I lightened it up with some pink.
Well that's all for today, I hope you liked today's - not bad for my first attempt at 'flying solo' if I say so myself! Please do visit again soon.
