This images' origins are unknown to me, I apologize for this but I had this stamp set forever, from back in the day when blogging was never contemplated, so I discarded the package and never bother to write down the name of the set, where is it from or who made it, if some of you out there have seen this images and know their manufacturer, I surely appreciate if you tell me.
I'm still not all there with my picture taking skills, sometimes the pictures are to dark and this time, I think it's to bright, sheeesh!! but I hope you can still see this beautiful images.
I stamped them onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Dove Gray ink, I wanted softer edges, specially for the Cherry Blossom branch. I colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter.
Following the sketch, I cut a piece of Vellum and stamped the Japanese symbol for Spring with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold. I needed that strip across the layout and I didn't want to cover the other two images with card stock.
On the other corners I stamped a couple of more images with Pistachio Pudding ink, those spaces looked to bare. To attach the Vellum I used a glue dot behind the symbol and two little pieces for the other side, I put a bit of gold gel pen to hide them.
Here is a picture of the finish inside.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Botanical Book Plates".
Here is the sketch that inspired this card.
And here are the pictures of the sets I used.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
