More Blossom

Hello again!,

Thanks for visiting!  This is another card we did at Claritystampers East, using the fab Blossom Branch set.

Starting with watercolour card, ink up with plenty of brown distress inks - use different colours and leave a slightly lighter space towards the centre of the card.
We then did the 4 Ss - Spritz, Splatter, Stencil and Stamp! to do the background....

Spritz with water and blot with copy paper
Squish some ink on a mat, add some water, then pick up on a brush and splatter over the card.
Stencil some dots in the background, using a light brown colour and the Dotty Wave stencil
Stamp the smaller branches in a pale colour, just to add to the background.

Once the background is done, stamp the branches in place with a dark brown ink and colour in with distress markers.

I always ink round the edges, usually with black - it's the law!!  Stamp the greeting in place, then mat onto Kraft card.  I am wondering about adding a touch of glitter to the blossom - what do you think??

Stamps and stencil used:
Blossom Branch set
Line sentiments set 1
Dotty Wave stencil

  1. Lovely, maybe a touch of clear wink of Stella x

  2. This is already a very pretty card but I think a touch of glitter on the blossom would look great! Chrissie xx

    1. Thanks, Chrissie, I think I will add a bit of glitter! xx

  3. I loved making this one too. Can you remind me what distress ink you used on the blossom and leaves, i've started buying the mini ones and love using my waterbrush x

    1. Hi ELaine, I think I used Fired Brick and Candied Apple for the red, then a mix of greens for the leaves. They will mix in with the brown in the background, so will end up more muted.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I appreciate and enjoy reading them all xxx
