Triple Layer, Faux Laser Cut, Cherry Blossom, Copic Airbrushed Card

Are you in the mood for more cherry blossoms cards?

All the shapes in this card were hand drawn from a a picture I took myself in Japan last February. You could say I'm a little obsessed with flowers, Japan and cherry blossoms at this point.

The background of this card is watercolor paper inked using Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire, Seedless Preserves, Festive Berries and Tattered Rose, overlapping the colors with a blending tool to make the transitions as smooth as possible.

The flowers and leaves were colored using a COPIC Airbrush and some COPIC Markers. I really like the effect the airbrush gives and the colors are very vibrant and with a glossy finished when applied to COPIC Express Blending card, which, by the way cuts like butter on the Explore. Linked below are the different airbrush systems available. #1 is the one I got, it gives you the possibility to use the bigger air cans and also use a compressor if you want to get serious with this addictive airbrushing technique.

There-s a trick to make all the cut edges look like done with a metal die or what I like to call Faux Laser Cut, but I-ll tell you later how that was done.

Make sure to use spray adhesive to glue the front intricate die cut to the colored panel, it is very hard to get other kind to those thin intricate pieces. Can you tell this card is only 5.5 inches tall, You gotta love that explore!
