I really ought to colour something other than Power Poppy images but they’re just so pretty and perfect for feminine cards. Though, to be fair, I have coloured up a couple of other digis recently, they just haven’t made it onto cards yet.
This digi stamp has a single branch of blossoming cherry so I duplicated it and arranged them on the Mac until I was happy with the layout. Then I printed it out and coloured it with my Copic markers.
I heat embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a sentiment strip die that has been lurking in my stash for ages. I added a few adhesive gems and thought I was finished.
After I’d taken all the photos, and right before I was about to put it into an envelope and post it off, I remembered that I’d originally planned to add some dots of gel pen to the centres of the flowers. I had a brief moment of indecision — should I just forget about it and post it as it was — but then I went ahead and took the time to add the dots. I’m glad I did.
