Sister Stamps Release #23 -- Sakura-chan

Hello!  Today is the last day of previews for Sister Stamps Release #23 and the three stamps will be available June 1st.  While I love Momotaro and the Sakura Set, I think Sakura-chan is my favorite in this release.   

Isn't Sakura-chan so adorable?  I love her little pig tails.  And I finally used my gelatos for the background.  I saw a tutorial on how to create this matted, ombre look HERE.  I used pinks and purple and a bit of gold gelatos.  I heat embossed the sentiment from PTI and a couple of the smaller flowers from the Sakura Set in gold.  I also added some pink and cream colored sakuras as well.

Here's a close up of Sakura-chan.  Did I mention that these images were super fast to color up too?  Just mostly skin tones since the babies are naked.

Please check out the rest of the DT.

P.S.  The colors I used for the peach in my previous post, I think were Y21, YR23 and YR02.  Ha, I don't normally keep track.  Sometimes I just pick whatever 3-4 colors I think would look okay.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I didn't seriously think about getting the new SS set until I saw your cards. This Sakura-chan really caught my eye because of the background pretty. I love how you colored the baby skin and hair. Now I will HAVE to get the set to make future baby cards. It is such a pleasure to view your inspiring work. Thank you!
