This is the one, the final version, a one layer card using Work of Art and a magazine freebie image.
This was my original card and design. I wanted a bokeh effect on the pink and blue and die cut the cherry trees. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that it didn't quite come out as I'd hoped. I added a few tiny pale pink rhinestones, they improved it but didn't really feel as CAS as I wanted.
Two more attempts at the masked panel of blended inks and !%*#^ bokeh and I gave up.
I wanted something arty so I turned to my favourite way of colouring, Work Of Art stamps. I loved this card until the final stamp, also a freebie. It just wasn't crisp enough for my liking, not for a DT card....
So here it is again, the final card. Hope you enjoyed the short story of its creation and manage to get your card for the challenge made with a little less frustration.
