This is my final entry for the Hero Arts Challenge this month ... hopefully it will still qualify as the Cherry Blossom is a Rubber Stampede but it went so well together with the HA Envelope Pattern.
Why Birds and Butterflies you ask? ... Well the Sizzix Card Section was first stamped with Versamark and the Cherry Blossom Stamp and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder ... I then used my Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls Embossing Folder.
The Card background has been stamped with a Lavender Pigment Ink Pad and the Envelope Pattern ... I then brushed the edges of the Card with the same Ink Pad.
The Blossom on the top layer of the ATC was stamped with Versafine Black and coloured with a Dark Pink and Lavender Watercolour Pencil (After adding water and leaving to dry) I added the grey shadow with a Promarker Pen ... I used the Lavender Watercolour Pencil on the back ATC layer and added water.
