Sakura Kit-Kat inspired card.

Kit Kats?? 
I know you must be intrigued, just read ahead and it'll all make sense.

Japan has all kind of Kit Kat flavors. They give them as gifts, because the word sounds similar to the Japanese phrase “Kitto Katsu” which means good fortune. Each year a lot of new flavors are released and we were lucky enough to taste and bring home a whole bunch of  the delicious Sakura (cherry blossom) flavor ones.

This is what inspired this card, the hint of pink blossoms on a sun setting evening sky.

The purple background panel is watercolor paper inked with seedless preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress ink. Just tap the ink pads randomly a couple of times on a craft mat, spritz some water on top and lay your cardstock gently turning it and checking if the ink covers it all. Finally,  let it dry, or use a heat gun. I like ironing the paper afterwards to make it flat before assembling the card. 

I love the detailing on this card and the subtle contrast of the light pink against the dark purple.
