Imagine it's spring- and a small tutorial too

Sometimes I make a project and then add the tutorial. Sometimes I really begin with a tutorial. This Imagine Spring project was made as a tutorial and then I've seen that it fits a lot of web challenges.
 This is an oriental style  with non oriental colors wall deco made over a chipboard base and over a big envelope. I was short of  a good white cardstock, but had those huge envelopes and it works!

So here we go for this small and easy tutorial.
1. Stamp over the cardstock (or envelope) with clear embossing ink, add white embossing powder and heat emboss it.I used Wycinanka Cherry blossom stamps all over the piece.

2. Mist the embossed images with a mix of mists. I decided to pick Lindy's Stamp Gang April challenge colors as they were a good fit for my project. I used Blue Hawaian blue, Rambling rose pink, Edelweis moss green I have and some Yelow rose of Texas for the light gold as I don't have the gold they are asking for.
3. Paint the Chinese chipboard (Wycinanka) with some shiny paint (I used Inspired by Stamping). Begin with the brown one and then move to pinks and whites for the blossom.
4. Cut a piece of white chipboard (I just used Wycinanka packaging pieces) a bit larger than the envelope. Heat emboss the edges with  Midnight Copper LSG  powder for the contrast.
Glue the envelope over the chipboard and glue the chipboard shape over the top. Stamp the sentiment with the same copper heat embossing over the same white chipboard; mist around with the same mists and glue it over the deco piece. Add some pink pearls over the blossoms and  over the letter" i "on your sentiment.

And if you live in the cold country you just can imagine that this is Spring around.
