These are such soft colors and so much fun to work with.

The challenge this week was to emboss. I chose an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions called "Cherry Blossoms". I hope it lets everyone think Spring. I used a technique that I have not used in many years. I embossed and then colored the detail with chalks. I love the muted look that it gives. I'm not sure where I got the sentiment, but I thought it was appropriate with the Cherry Blossoms!

I chose pastel colors for this sketch because I had already made 60 Christmas cards and was looking for a change. Once I began, the card took on a life of its own. I just played with colors and when I had it laid out, I began to think of a focal point. I love this 3 layer butterfly stamp from MFT and it fit with the pastels so well. I was pleased with the results as I hope all of you are.

I chose to leave my pieces as squares. I began with a background of Distressed Oxide inks. I stamped the flower images with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added a few highlights to the flower and leaves with copic markers. I cut my background into 1 inch squares and arranged them on black licorice cardstock. I placed this on a white card base and added my sentiment also heat embossed on black licorice cardstock.
