Here is my third card- the first of my greeting cards using punch craft.
I love Cherry Blossoms and of course Butterflies. So inspired by them here is my card.
|Cherry Blossoms and Butterflies|
I have used the textured light gray coloured card stock. Brown coloured paper twine was used for the tree branch. First I punched out of-white and light pink flowers and glued around the branches.It looked too drab. So I added the red coloured flowers here and there to brighten it up a bit. OK cherry blossoms are not red in colour-I agree with you.
Then I added the leaves. Hmmm... I had only that green coloured punch craft paper with me. I tried to get any other shade of green but couldn't. So I didn't have any other choice.
Then I bought the little butterfly punch. I had to try it. I ended up with blue butterflies as at that time my punch craft paper stash was very limited. Any way I was testing my skills and an artist has the liberty to create something new out of his/her imagination.
My personal opinion is that the colours did not gel together. But I got the shape of the flowers and leaves well for an amateur.
I did not add any sentiment as I can add it later on, if I want to give it away.
So what do you say? Your comments and suggestions matter a lot. please do stop by and leave your comments/suggestions.....
