I love fall and I adore this new release. You can find plethora of ideas running in your head as soon as you have a look at this beautiful release.
Without further ado, let’s have a look at my card.
2. White Cardstock
3. Oil Pastels and Q- tips for blending
1. Using PowerPoint, I flipped the blossom image, and added apple image to it( from APPLE BLOSSOM stamp set ). Once I’m satisfied with my composition and size, I took print out on a white card stock.
2. I coloured the image using Oil Pastels and blend the colours using Q-tips.
Usually water colouring would be my go-to medium, but this time I tried my hands on Oil Pastels to colour my focal image.
3. To keep the apple blossom natural, I chose to play white and pink colour combo.
4. I fuzzy cut my focal image and adhere it on an ink-smooshed background panel with a bold computer generated sentiment ‘So Sweet’ to balance the big bold apple.
5. Mount the front panel to the card base. Voila!
I hope you are inspired to take part in the challenge. More inspirations coming along your way. So subscribe and Stay Tuned.
