Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday, everyone~
I hope you had a wonderful spring weekend. We had the beautiful weather here and enjoyed the warm sunshine...almost too warm, lol.
For today's KS Monday, I created one of my favorite spring flowers...cherry blossoms using Multi Step Trees set. For some of you who are not familiar with Japan, there is no spring in Japan until you see the cherry blossoms. My card isn't even close to the beauty of real ones but I still enjoy making it ;)
The tree was simply stamped step by step. Then I sponged the grass and sky. The stamped word is from Vintage Words set.
I want to mention about the decorative frame. It was created with Fleur De Lis Pendants....The original size was too small for the the main mat. So, I cut it in quarters and added the Fleur De Lis motifs between the quarter pieces. Some pearls are actually used to hide the places where the parts were connected.
This card is combined with the challenge from Our Creative Corner (OCCC) -- Incorporate a bow on a card/project.
These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento unless mentioned):
(blossoms) 1st - angel pink, 2nd - angel pink, 3rd - rose bud
(tree bark) 1st - rich cocoa, 2nd rich cocoa
