Cherry Blossom

A few months ago I was in my mother in laws back yard where she has lots of lovely flowering plants in pots.  one of them was a cherry blossom.  I thought it looked so pretty I used it to create an image with, which I've only just had time to colour up and make a card with  LOL!

This image was coloured with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  I also roughly sketched in a white painted wall into the background with Copics and this is what my mother in law has in her back yard and it makes a perfect backdrop

Once finished I scattered shabby white embossing enamel which also has glitter in it and gives a lovely shine (not that you can see it here) onto it and heated it.  Framed with black card all I've added is a wood chip Happy Birthday sentiment from Scrapienic.

Hope you love what I did with the cherry blossom
