Cherry Blossom Card (Lavinia Stamps)

Now that we're into the new year, my mind is moving forward to Spring time and got me thinking about all the beautiful colours of the season.  This prompted me to make this Cherry Blossom card.

It's a simple little card which I have actually used as a "thank you" card.  I stamped the Lavinia Stamps "Cherry Blossom" in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink.  The Rubbadubbadoo sentiment is stamped in the same ink.  I coloured the flowers pale pink using a Promarker.

I then re-stamped in Versamark clear ink and then coated in clear embossing powder and heated.  This gives the image a slightly raised feel.  It also preserves the colour for when I used a pale green water colour wash for the background.  To add a little more interest to the background I added small dots using a gold coloured Sakura jelly roll pen.
