SumMore Fun Challenge #31 - Cherry Blossoms




Hello everyone,
Our new mood board/ challenge #31 is up and we want you to join us!  This mood board is amazing and has great images and colors to help you design a great project.  I used the mood board colors and came up with this card design. So let's check it out:


I started with a white A2 side-fold card base and then layered some Kraft card stock that was cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" on top. To give it some dimension I added fun foam to the back of the Kraft before placing it onto the card base.  I then set this aside and worked on my stamped top piece.  For the stamped panel I used some white Mixed Media paper and placed the large blossom and branch stamp from the Raisin Boat Cherry Blossom (10149-Z) set into my MISTI and using water color markers I inked up the stamp, spritzed with water and stamped down. I held the stamp down so the ink could soak into the paper and then I cleaned the stamp and re positioned the stamp two more times and using the water markers did the same steps.  I used a darker pink, two purple colors, a dark green and a brown marker to go with the mood board colors.  I then stamped a sentiment from the Raisin Boat Flourishing Thoughts (10271-Z) stamp set in Versamark Ink and heat set with Gold Embossing powder. I then used a thin strip of gold glitter washi from my crafty stash and placed that at the bottom of the panel and finished it off by gluing the panel to my already made card base.  I am working to get my card stash replenished and although I do not need a sympathy card now I know when and if I do I will have one.  I do believe these are some of the hardest cards we have to design but that when a friend or loved one loses someone it is so important they know they are thought of and loved. 
I do hope you will all join us on the current challenge, I have linked it below and I thank you for stopping by, see you all soon.
