I can't even remember the last time I blogged about this book that I bought from Disney World a couple of years ago:
But I do remember that my first attempt to color one of the pages is not very successful. I tried coloring with Copic markers, but the results were not so good (click here to see).
So for the past couple of weeks, I took my time and started coloring another page. It has the Sakura theme, Japanese term for Cherry Blossoms. This time, I used Prismacolor water color pencils and Gamsol.
I wanted to use this page on a card. But the size is too big for one. So I decided to make 2 cards, splitting this image in two. Each card fits in a standard A10 envelope.
This is how they look together:
cardstock/dp: Recollections, The Paper Company, washi paper
tools: punch (Marvy Uchida, Stamin' Up)
embellishments: twist tie, pearls
adhesive: Scotch, Glue Dots, Xyron, mounting tape
I love how the washi paper shows through the image.
And the flower embellishment is achieved by layering punched Sakura shapes, topped with pearls. The red strip you see is actually a twist tie bought in Japan.
I had a great time making these two cards. See, I wasn't slacking... hee hee!
'Til next blog!
