Today, I'm participating Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop. If you came, from Kavitha's blog you're on the right track, if not please start at the beginning from Altenew blog.
I used Under the Cherry Blossoms Tree stamp set to create my card. Here's my project:
I stamped the braches with Buttercream Altenew Crisp Die ink. Although the branches overlapped, I didn't use any masking since I was going to colour them up anyway. I laid my base layer with copics and added sharp details with coloured pencils over the copic layer. I list all the colours that used below if you are interested on exact colors I used.
For the butterflies, I used an older stamp set (which is still one of my all time favourite Altenew stamp sets) and stamped with the same Buttercream ink onto a piece of white card stock. I coloured the butteflies with copics and coloured pencils. I used a piece of foam tape and liquid glue to adhere the butterflies and stamped the sentiment from the same Under the Cherry Blossoms Tree stamp set with black pigment ink. I used pigment ink to ensure good stamping over the coloured images. Here's a close-up of the butterflies. I also stamped a little falling pedals with Peach Perfect Altenew Crisp ink. To finish up my card I adhere da piece of Cherry Wood card stock.
