Cherry Blossoms

I love Cherry Blossoms, don't you? I've yet to see them down by our State Capitol, but I have seen some gorgeous photos taken when they are in bloom. You have to be quick though before they are gone. 

 I recently came across these awesome laser cut cherry blossoms from Unique Laser Designs and came up with a way to enjoy these blossoms all the time. 

The best part about these is I can color the blossoms any way I want.  You could even go out a on limb and try an unconventional color for cherry blossoms.  For these I used a mix of gelatos to get the hue I desired.  I colored the branches and leaves with Spectrum Noir markers and used stickles for the flower centers.  I'll be entering this into the April challenge over on the Unique Laser Designs blog, you can check it out and enter one of your own creations for a chance to win.  Check out the details here, there's still time to enter, but hurry May is quickly approaching.

Thanks for looking!
