Avery Elle - Arigato

Thursday, August 4, 2016
Hello everyone! I'm back with another card using Konnichiwa stamps from Avery Elle. I was fortunate to live in Japan for a couple years and it is still one of my favorite places to see. I especially love spring time when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. When planning to visit Japan I highly recommend going there when it's cherry blossom season, it is absolutely the most beautiful thing to see! That was my inspiration for this card.
I have been into purples lately, you will see in my next posts. I wanted to add the mountains ala Mt. Fuji with the cherry blossoms hanging over. I'm sure you have seen many photos like it.
The girl is colored in copic markers and the thing I love about this stamp is that I didn't have to color the hair. That part of the stamp is solid so using my misti tool I was able to get the dark hair look very easily. Using copic markers would have taken me a long time to achieve it. Also with this stamp it comes with 3 different face expressions. I added a cherry blossom flower and chopsticks in her hair. I used distress inks with a blending tool to make the background. I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and die cut it using a fish tail banner. To finish off my card I scattered clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

  1. This came out great.. I love how you used purples in a mint color together. And the Cherry Blossoms of Japan are a true site to see. Thanks for joining us at MarkerPop!
