Cherry Blossom Birthday Card

Please contact me if you'd like to purchase this card


I made this beautiful birthday card for another close friend and I love how it turned out! The colors are gorgeous and I love the cherry blossoms and butterflies! It's hard to tell in the pic but before stamping the cherry blossoms I sponged the bottom half of the background with Bashful Blue ink then blended in Pretty in Pink ink from the top. I stamped the flowers with black ink then colored them with my Aqua Pen and new Twinkling H2O's water color paints. I absolutely love these! They are very bright, vivid, translucent colors. I just wish that they were easier to find. I've checked all my local craft stores for them several times and have never found them (of course you can always order them online). I picked this set up at a recent rubber stamp show. Here's a supply list:
