Well we are having pretty nice weather for Easter weekend, how about you?
One of my favorite things about spring is the cherry blossoms :) They are one of the first blooms of the season and they are so lovely. This week at There She Goes blog the challenge is to make a monochromatic card. I decided to use the cherry blossom trees as my color inspiration.
For my main panel I cut the ledger paper (Basic Grey, Basic Manila paper pad) to 3 x 3 3/4 then punched the edge (EK Success). I inked all the edges with walnut stain then rumpled the punched edge. I stamped the hearts and bucket (There She Goes, Buckets of Love) on to it.
I stamped the hearts (There She Goes, Buckets of Love) onto all three shades of pink. I cut out various hearts and glued them on top of the previous stamped image. The bucket (There She Goes, Buckets of Love) was stamped on brown. I did some shading with walnut stain and my H20 pen. Then colored the handle with a silver metallic gel pen.
I stamped the beginning of the sentiment (There She Goes, Buckets of Love) in walnut stain and the "love" with a pink marker. I added the ribbon and bow before adhering the whole panel with foam tape.
To finish off the card I added glossy accents and stardust stickles to various hearts. I also made the sentiment shine with some pink rhinestones :)
