Blue Cherry Blossoms


Just something pretty for no other reason than that it was fun to colour :)  This is a freebie image from A Day For Daisies called Cherry Blossom.  Their challenge this week is anything goes, so that’s a great time to play along.  

Of course there aren’t really blue cherry blossoms, but this paper with the gorgeous flowers begged to be used for this ocassion.  It’s really a clean design without much fuss or muss.  I did print two of the flowers and fussy-cut the lower set out and popped them up.  The pretty papers are MME Kate & Co.


I wanted it to have a lot of really rich deep teal blue in the colouring.  I do love my rich vivid colours!  

See ya soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
