Welcome to the Mama Elephant November Stampede Blog Hop!
Happy Friday, stamping friends! Today I'm sharing this Cherry Blossom Branch sympathy card featuring heat embossed images colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen. This technique is a go-to for me and a great way to color in florals. I love that this stamp set comes with greetings for thank you, encouragement, kindness, as well as sympathy. Sympathy cards are never my favorite to make in the moment so I always try to have a few on hand for when I need them. Let's get started!
For the background of my card, I applied Hero Hues Pool Party Reactive Ink to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of smooth white cardstock with a blending brush. I created the ombre effect by concentrating the ink towards the bottom of the panel and lightening towards the top. Once the ink was dry I stamped two phrases from the Cherry Blossom Branch Stamp Set with Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The branch, individual petals, and blooms from the Cherry Blossom Branch Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being colored with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:
The colors were blended out with a water brush pen for a soft, easy watercolored effect.
Once dry the images were die cut with the coordinating Cherry Blossom Branch Dies and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. The panel was adhered to a white side fold card base and finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.
Be sure to check back a week from today for the one stamp set, three ways video tutorial featuring not only this card but other ways to use the Cherry Blossom Branch Stamp Set!
