Today I have 2 cards that I am entering in the twofer card challenge #3 which has the prompt blossoms. My 2 cards are very different, in fact I have gone 3D for one of them, I hope that is allowed.
I have had a blossom stamp by Kaiser Craft for a while now and hadn't yet found an occasion to use it, until now of course. Here are my cards:
The second picture is the card folded up.
My second card is probably the most CAS card I have ever made. The blossom is stamped on a piece of yupo paper that I had coloured with alcohol ink. I then used the technique shown by Jennifer McGuire that she called alcohol ink ghost stamping. I used the same archival plum ink to stamp the image and then wiped it away and you are left with quite a detailed shadow left by the stamp, it is very neat. I decided to make this the focus of my card, so put it in a panel and scored the white card either side of the panel. I shall send this to a very special person in my life who has been unwell.
Here are the pictures:
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it and if you can also take the time to leave me a comment it would be even better.
