Have I mentioned I can't get enough of the watercolor trend ;) You may have seen this card inspired by the crab apple in my front yard. Well today I was inspired by the Japanese cherry in the backyard.
And the Pretty Pink Petits Fours at Moxie Fab. What delicate beauty. Which translated to cherry blossoms in my mind.
So I reached for some crepe paper and a potion leftover from a card I made for a submission call (didn't get picked but I'll share with you later. Happy dance for the four that were picked! I still can't believe it.) The potion, you're wondering? Spray ink + soap bubbles. Yep. That's it in the jar.
Dribbled some onto my palette, sprayed with water and soaked up some color with the crepe paper. Die cut some blossoms with a Memory Box die and added a bit of a gray branch like the silver serving piece, some woodgrain like the plate and some vellum to replicate the glaze. I was so into this I've got two for your viewing pleasure!
For mom for Mother's Day (can't believe I've actually done this in plenty of time!) Three blossoms with two layers of petals and a vellum sentiment.
And an all occasion beauty with a one-layer blossom and vellum butterflies. These make me smile. Hope you're smiling too!
