Forever Blossoms ~ Just For You Card

Hello lovely crafters!
Welcome to another blog post by me using a set that I am just in love with....Forever Blossoms. 

I am a huge fan of cherry blossoms. They have always been a favourite of mine. 

I was really inspired by a card that I saw in the catalogue and also the lovely Emma Goddard and her beautiful watercolour stripes that she does with an Aqua Painter. 

Here's a picture of my finished card.
I have used a colour combination that I haven't used before and I have to admit that Gray Granite is not one of my 'go to' colours, but I am loving it more and more.
It's quite a warm grey!

I have used some Fluid 100 Watercolour of my go to's!
I have then simply watercolored some stripes with my Aqua Painter.
Stay tuned on the Aqua Painters...we might have something exciting coming *wink*

Here's a picture of prove to you how much I love cherry blossoms.
This is a tree that I planted in my parents garden approximately 15 years ago (maybe a bit more) and my darling Burmese cats Bailey and Java that passed away are laid at peace under this tree.
It really is beautiful! 

Here's a close up look at the finished card where you can see some of the texture and detail.
I have chosen to colour my blossoms with a mixture of Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin' Blends. 
I usually reach for the pinks when I am colouring flowers, but this just matched so well with the Gray Granite!

I have also added some Polka Dot Whisper White Tulle and YAY this fabulous ribbon is going to be in the next Annual Catalogue!

The sentiment for this card is heat embossed in black on some Crumb Cake cardstock with a sentiment taken from the Rare Blessings stamp set. 
This really is such a gorgeous stamp set and is if it catches you eye, be sure to get it now before it sells out!

Also...I have coloured some Rhinestones in black with the Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend.
You can make rhinestones any colour you like with the Stampin' Blends. I love it!

Here's a look at the inside of my card which I have stamped some of the beautiful blossoms and leaves and coloured to match the card front, and added a sentiment from the Rare Blessings Stamp Set stamped in Gray Granite to carry that colour through.
