Scramble 81

I was able to play in last Saturday's scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  Arlene hosted and our instructions included: using and embellishment and a die cut or punch or embossing folder along with a main image being a hero arts stamp.  I grabbed an older set, because the flower reminded me of the Cherry Blossoms in Washington DC. Hubs and I try to go see them every year.  It really makes me feel like spring is here when I see them.

I used vellum with white heat embossing and marker coloring on the back side. I stamped cut and colored 6 blooms, used 3 of them whole, then cut up two to add some bulk, I wanted the feeling of those bloom clusters to come through on the card.  The interior has one blossom on a small  branch for decoration.  I wanted the flowers to be a somewhat translucent to let the branch die behind the flowers to show through a bit.

Here's hoping we all get some more spring like weather and that it lasts as long as this winter seemingly did.
Thanks for stopping by.

    How wonderful that you get to see the lovely Cherry Blossoms in DC. They must be breath-taking to see in real life. Enjoy!

  4. This is a stunner, Cat! I LOVE those vellum blossoms over that embossing folder. How neat you see the cherry blossoms each year--must be amazing.

  5. my daughter was walking behind me when your card stopped her in her tracks and she said "wow! That's a pretty card!" I told her of course it is! LOL You have a new fan, I think!
