My mum loves all things Japanese, including the cherry blossoms (sakura 桜). So, I used the retired Stampin' Up! Set, Easter Blooms with my Stampin' Write Markers (in Rose Red and Chocolate Chip). I coloured directly on to the stamp, and then stamped on to the base cardstock, then without re-inking, I stamped it again a below, to give the impression that there were branches behind the first one.
I then put a little bit of glue on some of the flowers, and a little on the main branch, I then sprinkled some super fine silver glitter on top. I don't know that you can see that in the picture above.... I then got out my Well Scripted stamp set (one of my favourites) which is also retired, and stamped Love You Much in Chocolate Chip ink in the bottom right hand corner to finish off this card.
I am entering this card into the Less is More challenge for week 12's Off-Centre recipe. I am really happy that I am improving on my one layer cards, and I happily made this a one layer card without much thought...
I am also entering this into the Hand Stamped Sentiments, Mothers Day challenge
Until next time,
