Sakura-Chan

Hi!

We've had a boom in pregnancies at work, not sure what's in the water, but it's affecting some of our newly wedded ladies! hahaha!!  So glad I have the newest Sister Stamps to create some fun baby cards for the future mamas-to-be. Here's a simple card featuring Sakura-chan and the Sakura set:


First I started off stamping/coloring Sakura-chan, then I masked her and used several of the Sakura set stamps to stamp around her.  I wasn't sure what I was going for at that point, so I put the image aside after coloring it up.  Not sure where the branches started to play a part but once I started I couldn't stop.  I drew them in with a Copic marker and then tried to draw in some details with a darker Copic color. Grabbed one of the impression sakura stamps and used one of my new ink pads from MFT to create the buds on the tree. The washi paper was layered over the white card and using the crocheted ribbon on the top and the bottom gave this a really nice girly touch.  The last addition is the computer generated sentiment.  Here is a close up...


I used a gold Viva decor pen for the stamens inside the sakura.  It gives a nice dimensional touch. You can see a little bit more of the branches and the yellow flowers here.  


I'd like to give a shout out to Sister Stamps to wish them a Happy 3rd Anniversary! I know there are a lot of us who are incredibly happy that Jenny & Denise decided to share their adorable stamps with us, Cheers to many many more!  Thanks for stopping by today!
