This is the last of the Graphic45 Birdsong cards, at least for awhile. I still have quite a bit of the paper left so I will be using it on something eventually.
I think this was the most basic of the cards I did since there isn't a lot of paper layering and the focus is more on the blossoms. The bird and branch is from the Stampin Up Bird Punch. And there is still time to order for my Online Stampin Up Party!
But back to the cherry blossoms. After stamping them and letting the ink dry I used my Blush Blossom and Pretty In Pink Stampin Up Markers to add color. I thought it still needed a little something else and adding the white dots in the middle with the Signo-UM 153 gel pen did the trick. It also helped camouflage the small piece of mounting foam under the blossoms. I did have to cut the blossoms out by hand but once again it was worth the effort!
I have to tell you how much I love the "Bird Song" cards you are making. I have this paper pack and have often wondered what in the world will I do with it. I have printed out each of your e-mail with these cards so that I can use them for inspiration...I can hardly wait to get started...Thanks so much for the inspiration...as usual...God bless.....oh I am glad that Wonka is safe.
