Today I’m making a card for Make It Crafty’s Clean and Simple DT Call. If you’ve been following me on Instagram and Facebook, you’ve seen that I’ve been obsessed with Make it Crafty’s images. I colored the Characters when I did a Product focus on the Spectrum Noirs and I love coloring the Flower set that has the Beautiful Rose. I love coloring and I’m in love with MIC’s images, I want to buy them all, lol
For my card today, I’m using their Newest Release of Spring Flower set. I fell in love with the Cherry Blossom as soon as I saw them and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. If you purchase the set which includes 4 flowers, you automatically get 15% off which is super good deal. That’s what I bought, but you can definitely purchase them individually.
I printed the Cherry Blossom out on Strathmore 80lb. watercolor paper and cut the image out of Mama Elephant’s Femme Frame die. I also cut a black Bazzil card using the same die but I used the Scallop one. My card base today is Neenah Desert Storm 100lb. I printed several of these flowers and I colored them using Tim Holtz Distress markers using a Stampin up blender pen. You can use any blender pen you have, you can even use a water brush ins tread. In my opinion, the blender pen gives more control and this is perfect since the background is going to be very loose. After coloring some of the Cherry blossom and I fussy cut them out to give more dimension to my front panel.
For my background, I used the Cracked Pistachio and Peacock feathers and made a very loose background for my Flowers. I also put Picked Raspberry on all the flowers with lots of water so it’ll kind of ooze out and blend with the background I created. I rally love this loose watercoloring! For the sentiment, I used a stampin up’s stamp set and I embossed it using Versafine Onxy pigment ink with clear embossing powder. These Flowers DO Come with Sentiments so you can use those if yo like.
I attached everything together and added some Pretty Pink Posh Clear sequins in different sizes. I also put some clear Wink of stella and put Glossy accents on the popped up Cherry Blossoms. This finishes my card for today and I hope you enjoyed. All the supplies I used in this card will be located below, for your convenience. I’m Crossing My Fingers!!! I would LOVE to be one of their DT members!!! This will be such a great experience and if I don’t get Chosen, that’s Ok too. I’ll still be enjoying her images:) Thank you so much and Much Mahalo!
