Started off by embossing a 6" x 4" piece of card using the Maple Leaf embossing folder, then I blended various shades of green Distress Ink and added a bit of faux bleaching....
Then to build a bit more visual depth I added a bit of stamping with the oriental writing from the 'Sakura' stamp set and then over that stamped and embossed in gold some cherry blossom using the silhouette stamp from the same stamp set.
Then I stamped and embossed some of the lanterns from the 'Lanterns' set and used some of the foliage stamps on the same plate to add some decoration to them. I cut these out and coloured them with a mixture of Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade and Pumice Stone Distress Ink before gluing in place with a little 3d glue gel.
Oh, so beautiful, Donna!ReplyDelete
Donna, this is amazingly beautiful! I appreciated reading about your techniques and seeing some of the layers as the card came together. It's a real stunner and your colours are fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration piece and all that you and Mandy do keeping this blog going. :)ReplyDelete
