Well I am so happy that I stumbled across the WCMD Challenge #1: Japan over at Nicole's PTI blog!! This was truly a challenge, but that is just what I was looking for on World Card Making Day! The first challenge of the day was to make a card inspired by Japan or Japanese Art. After researching the topic I discovered that there are a lot of Cherry Blossoms in Japanese Paintings. I love to paint flowers, so I decided to do a little painting.
Here is one of the many beautiful paintings that caught my eye:
When I saw the background color I knew that I had to use PTI Summer Sunrise as my background.
Here is my finished card:
I used some acrylic paints on some thick art paper and then cut out the flowers and placed them on the summer sunrise cardstock!
Well I hope you enjoyed my card and thank you so much for stopping by!
